We have been anonymously informed that BTOpenworld have recently commenced a trial, of their USB service on 13 exchanges around the London area, that they are calling the pre-launch Operational
Readiness Testing (ORT) trial. The trial is to have no installation fee and no service charges. It is intended to run for THREE MONTHS
, putting final release
back to September at an earliest date.
According to information we have been supplied with dated 1 June, BTOpenworld are short
of trialists for the service. Whether this is still the case is unknown. I'm sure that many
people would be happy to participate in this trial before the final release.
