Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

ADSLuk, the e-zine that follows British broadband issues with the tenacity of a bush tracker, believes BT won't roll out domestic ADSL services before mid-to-late September 2000.

What's more, it maintains that BT won't install domestic USB ADSL connections for its competitors - Demon, Freeserve and others - before its own punters.

In fact, ADSLuk is so sure that BT will drag its heels over domestic ADSL installation, it's running a sweepstake to see who can guess correctly when it will be installed.

Prizes include two months' free subscription to BT's domestic broadband service worth around £75 (when it is installed, of course) and the top ten albums of the week.

First prize is two VIP tickets to Glastonbury 2001 - just as long as it happens after BT installs its first domestic user.

According to the competition rules, transferrals from BT's trial to this service don't count.
