Its amazing that technology changes and for an extra £0.16 or 16p per day, I now have a massive difference in speed. I am one of the lucky ones, but in reality the extra coms cost has been approx. 1p ish per year extra per day on the cost I decided to pay all those years ago. It is also interesting to note that the extra cost is in the telephone line component rather than the xDSL cost.
I think I would have paid the extra 15% then if FTTC was available in 2002.
