Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Oftel is once again blowing its own trumpet and claiming responsibility for introducing affordable unmetered Net access in the UK.

The winged watchdog published benchmark figures today which show that when it comes to Net access, the UK is cheaper than California and Germany.

According to its latest international benchmarking report (the figures are three months old, by the way) 24/7 unmetered Net access in the UK costs from £18 per month - as compared to £19 per month in California, and £39 per month in Germany.

An Oftel press release claims that "David Edmonds said that Oftel's work had delivered lower prices for
consumers."

Oftel's work has delivered lower prices for consumers? Is this some kind of sick joke?

If David "Harry Potter" Edmonds, headboy of Oftel is so bloody keen to claim responsibility for introducing unmetered net access, perhaps he'd also like to take responsibility for the botch job done on broadband in British.

Nah, I didn't think he would either. ®
