Arriba Arriba

As you may know last week we opened pre-registrations for the 100Mb broadband service, which is being so ably promoted by Speedy Gonzales (who you can follow on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/speedy by the way) and to celebrate the launch the media relations team managed to get some very flash cars out to act as London taxis ... a Ferrari F430, a Porsche 911 Turbo and an Aston Martin DBS.

They happened to rock up outside our Covent Garden offices so I nipped out to get a few pictures:

Did anybody else spot them around London, and more importantly did anyone get a ride in one? If so, were they as much fun as they looked?

I gather we’re looking into whether we can have some elsewhere in the country too so keep your eyes peeled!

  2. Ah, the joys of traffic - one reason I don't drive as I just don't have the patience to sit still for long enough!

  3. Hi Alex,

    This sounds like a great idea... until you take the analogy a bit further.

    When used in London, it's like having a 50 or 100Mbps link that only runs at 5Mbps because the site you want to stream from is congested to hell by other users.

    What you really need is to work put a way of clearing the roads first - then having a Porsche or a Ferrari might actually be of some benefit ;-)
