* BT Boss Has Only Broadband Home *
British Telecom (BT) has admitted its
chairman is the only person in a village
on the Oxfordshire-Buckinghamshire
border with broadband.
Other people in Hambleden were told they
could not have broadband because of the
distance to the exchange.
BT said Sir Michael Rake's connection was
part of a trial of new technology, and no
company could afford to provide broadband
to the area.
One local resident said it was not fair
and that Sir Michael should resign.
