I've received a telephone sales call from BT Broadband offering me their broadband or broadband/phone packages. The salesman, who had never heard of Newnet, said that BT could offer me a faster broadband service because "your phone line is BT and therefore would be faster than any other provider".
As far as I'm aware BT Wholesale manage the line/connection and the speed is determined by the copper wiring and distance from the exchange so it shouldn't matter who provides the broadband package. It's arguable that BT Broadband's traffic management may be better than other ISP's but the salesman didn't make that claim.
Was I being spun a yarn or are BT Broadband doing something I don't know about?
