    Yeah, the term "speeds up to X bps" needs to be outlawed everywhere.

    Just getting British Telecom to stop telling porkies would be a start.

    BT just told me that they had decided to up my broadband speed to 76Mbps however they then said because of my distance from the fibre cabinet I can only get 50Mbps but my broadband package will state I get 76.

    Oh, and just in case I was overwhelmed with the kindness of their gift, the cost of my package goes up in January by £2.50p per month.
