London and Strathclyde, and these will be limited to employees only.
The rest of the UK, and only those close enough to an exchange, will

I'm on Telewest, 4Mb. They could up that to 8Mb in a blink of an eye, and will surely top BT for marketing reasons. So, that'll be good. Also, good that broadband is becoming so ubiquitous.
But, they've added a customisation section, I've deleted sport, since this isn't news in my book and added a blog section. That is, I can now do searches in news papers the world over for references to the word 'blog.'
This reminds me of Netscapes RSS news page back in '98 or was that '99? Where you could add feeds from those who had RSS feeds, which wasn't many then. It's also like my searches with PubSub in my aggregators.
[Update:] I've added some more panels, some of which I use in PubSub and other aggregator searches, like Blogdigger. As Google news is only searching newspapers, these aren't bringing in much that's current. Now, if they add in blogs to their reach, this will be a killer. Really!
