    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default Woohoo, Witchford joins the modern age...

    Since moving out to the sticks we've been stuck with the "broadband" (and I use that term very lightly) connection from hell. When we moved in, it was 600kbps, not even a 1Mb connection, it went up a bit over the last few months but was always rubbish.

    Well the modern age has arrived in the sticks. BT finally fibre enabled our village a couple of months ago and Sky have finally got round to fitting their fibre kit in the Ely exchange (that we run off).

    Yes I know there's a lot better out there but when you've been used to such a crappy connection this is awesome (only went for the lower rated fibre connection that is "upto 40Mb" and was told we'd get 27Mb max, there is another level "upto 80Mb" but can't justify the extra tenner a month).

    Very happy techy bunny though.

    Vehicle : Vectra Hatchback

    Trim : Life(well it was)

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Default

    nice one!! im waiting on openreach to finish their bit round our estate, we are going over to bt on friday in prep but the cabinet is already there and the uk power networks have run the power so shouldnt be too long. atm i get about twice the speed when tethering through my phone its that bad and for someone who for ages before had virgin media fibre it has been hell, but should only be another month tops !!! ive never wanted a bt product so much in my life, even though it pains me to admit it!


    ide also like to add that this is on the edge of a major commuting town( alot of london workers in sittingbourne that sometimes work from home etc or need a reliable remote connection for other reasons) and the estate is only 5 years old (some bits are slightly newer) and it was never cabled by virgin media? maybe has something to do with the nobs at taylor wimpey who built the places!
