We'd love to say they're pledging to get their super fast broadband rolled out to 10 million UK homes in time for 2012 purely as part of their commitment to the London Games and the Olympic value of excellence. Since they lit up the top of BT Tower for the 1,000 day countdown it would be fitting to work towards something within the Olympian timeframe. But it's much more to do with keeping up with slightly speedier Virgin Media who currently provide the fastest residential broadband (although our own experiences don't particularly bear this out grrrrr hiss). We only hope while they're focusing on their fibre optics they don't neglect those restaurant plans which are far more exciting for us than 100mbps.
