Short answer: no.

The catch is that if anyone else wants to do this they will have to just do it, get sued, get the people suing them to get it up to a class action lawsuit, then reach the same (or at least very similar) settlement as Google has done here.

Or just change the law to be less silly.

The State of UK Broadband — Not So Fast 279

from the but-you-have-actual-competition dept.
Barence writes "The deplorable speed of British broadband connections has been revealed in the latest figures from the Office of National Statistics, which show that 42.3% of broadband connections are slower than 2Mb/sec. More worryingly, the ONS statistics are based on the connection's headline speed, not actual throughput, which means that many more British broadband connections are effectively below the 2Mb/sec barrier. Better still, a separate report issued yesterday by Ofcom revealed that the majority of broadband users had no idea about the speed of their connection anyway."
