Glad to see someone bumping this thread to the top again.
I am still infuriated by the broadband situation.
The residents of Canada Water face two problems
1) The Bermondsey FTTC Upgrade - This has been postponed three times now and is currently scheduled for December 2012
2) The deployment of FTTC cabinets. Even once Bermondsey has been upgraded, there is no guarantee that your street cabinet will be retrofitted.
While we stand next to no chance of preponing the Bermondsey upgrade, I do feel that our voices can control the cabinet upgrades.
The punch line of this awful joke is that I don't even care that much about speed any more. It is the level of stability that I find completely unacceptable.
A friend told me that the apartments at Maple Quays near the tube station have FTTP. If this can be confirmed, it shows that bringing fibre to the area isn't such a tall order.
