Its a different person posting.
All the post needed was, somewhere in it, to justify the opening statement, was "In my experience". Then it might have been useful.
As it is, it looks more like a hijack (as suggested by XRaySpeX), than a contribution. I also believe it is incorrect and that the poster was misled. It is automatic for most ISPs, and I am fairly sure BT is one of those.
