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 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!

  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 ;-)
