    Angry Damn this Dial-up rubbish

    I've just missed out on an irmscher grill .

    At work Ebay is blocked, so we have a standalone PC that dials into the internet. It is SOOOOOO SSSSSLLLLLLLOOOOOOWWWWWW every time I use it I know why I went for broadband at home!!!!!

    anyway, ebay item number 120156107276 was an irmscher grill, just sold for £87, and I missed out coz the page would not load quickly enough. Did anyone on here grab the grill, if so, well done!

    Might have to cheer myself up by buying a lower front spoiler from GT Tuning... (i'll wait til I'm at home so it's quicker!)

    I know how you feel. Cancelled my cable broadband and went with Sky broadband. Told I would get at least 3mb in my area. 6 days later I cancelled Sky broadband as I was getting a pathetic 1.2mb MAX! Now have to wait until NTL sort out reconnecting me and have been on dial up. NEVER again!

    You were lucky!!! I moved house two months ago and BT promised that my ADSL would smoothly transfer over and I am still waiting as the local telephone exchange is full and apparently some local people have been waiting 6 years for broadband.

    We are told that we will get a telephone line by mid September!

    Fortunately we have 3G Broadband at home and get a 3.6Mb connection using a Vodafone 3G USB Modem.
