And under GoB control the blocking continues. Sometimes I think it has become worse. I wonder whether it's simply been overlooked (which seems pretty unlikely given the publicity it has always received), a result of ignorance by BTL staff of how to turn it off, deliberate policy by GoB (which I really hope isn't the case), or maybe Ashcroft's influence still at work, in anticipation of the day he gets BTL back.
Whatever. It's an appalling service, both in quality and price, yet is so crucial to the way the modern world works. I have known several people who came here in the fond belief that they could keep control of their businesses overseas via internet, but found it impossible and left again. A combination of the internet and phone services.
