The Gorse Fox is fed up with his broadband. As half the world seems to get faster and faster service, the Gorse Fox's service seems to have degraded to the point that it rarely can download at 2Mbps. Discussion with BT was interesting as the call centre clerk tried to explain the technology to GF. GF put up with it for a while, then decided he would show his hand regarding knowledge of the underlying technology (he was once offered a job designing and writing the software for digital exchanges) and his ability to identify when he is being snowed. In panic GF was referred on to another group (who aren't on duty until tomorrow).
The private nature of this Estate probably precludes any fibre connections to the house, but there should at least be fibre from the exchange to the distribution cabinet. But no, we struggle with 1.7Mbps as Korea delivers 200Mbps. Pathetic.
