Neuland outreach to England

The BBC has an article about the good people of Templeton, Devon burning an effigy of an BT Openreach van over frustration with slow broadband speeds. The villagers say they were promised superfast broadband three years ago, but are still waiting, because BT says it’s the wrong kind of rural environment to put connectivity into.

Templeton, which is in England where Freiburg would be in Germany, is getting all of 0.7 megabits per second.

  1. You know you’ve reached full expat integration status if your readers try to make sense of the Dutch words “of an BT Openreach van over” before noticing the post is in English (because you’ve cited quite a few Dutch articles).

    Or your readers need more sleep/caffeine. Or need to learn more than a few words of Dutch.

    Ah, the wrong kind of rural environment. That would be the kind that doesn’t look like a city, would it?
