Some kind of vortex, I imagine

Another gem of a quote on the BBC News site today, on a story about broadband speeds not being as advertised (shock).

A BT spokesman confirmed that 8Mbps would be a rarity for users.

“Virtually no-one will get it. The laws of physics start applying as soon as it leaves the exchange and you would have to live on top of the exchange to get the full 8 megabits,” he said.

I’m glad the laws of physics apply once broadband leaves the exchange. Within the exchange, of course, it’s a different matter. I understand time and space break down, Planck’s constant isn’t and Heisenberg’s uncertainly principle only applies to the choice between a chocolate digestive and a garibaldi.
