Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

The new router has arrived. The fibre is being switched to on 24th Jan at 12oclock midnight, when this is done, they will then send me an email to say I can set it up. Then, as I said before it will be two weeks before it settles down to how fast it's going to run. I will report back.

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

We are miles from the exchange and the cabinet is about 200yds down the lane. It is costing us another £6 for fibre, bringing it up to £31 including anytime landline calls, I don't think that is too bad.

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Just posting an update on our abysmal internet connection. After being given advice from you wonderful people we contacted EE, and what we were getting was about the best we could expect, so we plugged on.

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Is it a weight which was put on the end of a halter rope when a cow was tied up to stop the rope coming undone, and give the cow a bit of movement by keeping the rope tight and so not getting entangled, so it could lie down?

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

image.png Ours is £26 and unlimited landline calls. If I take the £26 on here it bumps up and no landline calls. We haven't a house full on the Internet, just the two of us so it doesn't seem bad.

We are with EE, have been for ever when it was Orange. Never been good here but doesn't really affect us as we don't down load music or films.
We pay £26 a month for wifi and unlimited anytime phone calls.
