This might seem trivial but it’s the little things that will grind us down. When I shop in Tesco and pay at the self-service till I am pretty sure the lovely lady says:

When broadband supplying companies are advertising perhaps they could actually state a speed rather than just a value. They seem to say:
Speeds of up to 8 megabits
Now, you know I’m this fussy! 8 megabits is not a speed. You have to have a compound measure for speed because it’s a rate. They should be saying:
Speeds of up to 8 megabits per second
If both these things happened I would be a happy man!
