image for Government To Reclassify U.K Broadband Services
New Broadband Symbol Adopted by Otelo

The government has today revealed plans to reclassify Broadband services within the U.K to a more recognisable structure that will be more easily understood by the U.K consumer.

Instead of Broadband Service Providers being listed from the best down to the worst in polls and surveys, the top service provider will be reclassified as "least-crap" with a sliding scale down to "most-crap."

Currently the "least-crap" provider has an average speed of 50k providing you are not too far from the exchange, that you don't have more than one extension, that there is a Y in the month and that you have a degree in computer engineering and the right sort of leaves on your telephone line.

Broadband Service Providers have protested to Otelo vehemently over the changes, stating that the reclassification will cost them millions in retraining Asian Call Centre staff with the newly worded scripts.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
