First Tube banner ad I've seen

Using BT or using the Tube

I was just browsing the
Radio Times website and a moving Tube train caught my eye. I don't normally pay massive attention to banner ads but this one compared the number of people who "come back" to BT with the amount of people who use the tube each day (coming back to BT is nothing to do with bio-terrorism but re-connecting to British Telecom for their phone - for any visitors outside of the UK):

Two and a half thousand people a day apparently - enough to fill ten tube trains:

Or only three in the normal rush hour:

Reconnecting to BT may have more comparisons to travelling on the Tube. You probably wait a long time for them to turn up. They rarely turn up when they say they will. And after you've been using them a long time, you think "I must find an alternative" but can never really be arsed to do so.
