BT's ADSL plans crippled by oil crisis
For once you can't blame BT or OFTEL for this
ADSL installations have been put on hold in Britain until the fuel crisis is over.
A report by ADSL UK claims that BT is likely to "suspend ADSL installations and repairs as emergency conditions kick in".
A spokeswoman for BT wouldn't comment specifically on the installation schedule of ADSL. However, she said that the company was affected and this would impact upon all work carried out by BT.
The worst affected areas are the North West and Wales.
If the crisis deepens priority will be given to maintaining 999 emergency services. ®
