image for Rural Britons Dominate Broadband!
Sheep in rural England are much less nervous since the advent of broadband

Broadband providers throughout the United Kingdom are reporting that the majority of the sales are coming from the rural regions of the Queen's England. Some analysts believed that the trend was fueled by the poor telly reception and the exorbitant cost of satellite TV in the subsuburban areas of John Bull's nation.

"Our shepherds and farm folk love the comedy provided on the internet", explained Ev Reeman, media analyst and barley farmer.

However more detailed studies of the services being purchased by Great Britain's great country folk suggest that there might be some other explanation for the broadband ballyhoo.

"These subscribers are looking for more than just your usual British funny business. These are consumers of not just funny ha ha but of enormous amounts of funny queer", according to internet guru, Beatus D. Meet.

The numerous hits on websites like sheeprunscared.web and inthefarmersdaughter.guv seem to confirm the findings.
