On a lighter note: bus lanes and broadband

In a normal year in Northern Ireland, “Marching Season” is pretty much done by now. However today sees a commemorative march to mark the centenary of the signing of the Ulster Covenant. At the same time, Belfast has been getting used to new bus lanes in the city centre (a project called Belfast on the Move).

This morning a witty Facebook friend had this suggestion:

Belfast on the move. As well as bus lanes why not have a lane dedicated to parades!

On Broadband, there has been a bit of an investigation this week about how well Broadband customers are served around the country. I thought this comment was interesting:

I feel we’re living in the 21st century but we are getting a 19th century service.

Interesting. Who knew that parts of Northern Ireland already had access to the Internet (dial-up) in the 1800s?
