Perhaps I should have updated the thread with my own later experience on Monday. Speeds got better (I did not actually check the precise speed again) but rather patchy in some areas. I was on the basic e-mail package but got a reasonable connection to Sky News, on which I was able to watch part of the Brexit debate in the HoC live and without interruptions. Overall moderately impressed, but still some way to go to justify charging 50% more for 8 hrs slow connection, than I pay for a month's fast broadband at home !.

Also, there was no announcement that the service was operative and I only knew to check thanks to this thread. Presumably once there is a mass take up, the service will really suffer.
