Great curry, great clothes and now broadband everywhere – Britain is finally becoming a reasonable destination. British Telecom has figured out a way to extend its DSL service beyond the de riguer four kilometer-from-central-office distance to about six kilometers. That is enough to get the service to pretty much everyone even in tiny villages and hamlets. I guess they had to do something – especially given the pressure from independents using a motley crew of wireless and wireline technologies. Near 100 percent coverage will be completed by end of 2005. Stateside, a lot of start-ups are working on developing this DSL-boost.
