Re: FYI: Virgin Media Customers - Speed Upgrade (Free)

We got ours bumped from 60Mb to 100Mb last summer. Virgin didn't explicitly tell us, it just happened. You've probably had higher speeds yourself for a while, just not noticed.

Re: Should Parking Be Subsidised?

Cambridge has very expensive parking, and pretty much no on-street parking in the centre. It also has the lowest empty shop rate in the UK.

Re: Should Parking Be Subsidised?

Yes. But there's no evidence that subsidising parking boosts the economy.

Re: Should Parking Be Subsidised?

The Road Users Alliance are only telling half the story there. The full report from the DfT concludes that motorists are subsidised to the tune of £9.6 billion. http://ipayroadtax.com/no-such-thing-as-road-tax/when-will-drivers-start-paying-the-full-costs-of-motoring/" target="_blank There was anoth...

Bike ride at County Hall

I recently saw a banner outside County Hall advertising a charity bike ride this weekend. There's a website listed on it for more info, but I've since forgotten it and my google-fu is letting me down. Anyone know any more details?

MultiDad, two questions for you.
1. Parking to be subsidised, yes or no?

Re: Women's Cycling Tour

Lack of any promotion for this by the council is embarrassing. Here's an opportunity to get lots of people into the town centre for the biggest sporting event that's ever happened in Hertford and it's been completely wasted.
