Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

If, like me, you are part of the sizeable minority of people in the UK who cannot get broadband via cable or DSL – then take heart. For we have a spiritual ally.

Writer and broadcaster, Dr Lavinia Byrne (Internet Consultant for Catholic Bishops’ Conference, among many other things) is also without ADSL. And she ain’t happy.

Speaking yesterday morning during the religious slot on the BBC’s Today programme she addressed the nation on the topic "Communication is part of the very nature of God".

She opened her address thus: "’BT Moves to Boost Broadband Demand,’ my newspaper told me yesterday morning. I’m afraid that if my broadband demand gets further boosted I shall burst. I put myself down in a queue for ADSL in June 2000 and have yet to have so much as a squeak of interest shown of my request."

BT? No interest? Shirley not. ®
