I find the colder it is the better it is. Can't wait till we get FTTP. (That's what Openreach have us down for on their checker but not holding my breath).

It's your own fault for staying miles from the exchange, being on the end of decades old cable with no doubt numerous joins holding it all together!
Mine used to be exactly the same if there had been a period of continuous rain.

I remember having to tip water on the telephone cable when it got too dry and caused the line to crackle.

I'm the cause of my own downfall here. The house is located in the parish of Leslie-by-Insch but postally the Royal Mail have us listed under Clatt. Being an obstinate, pedantic type I always list our address as Leslie, my thinking being the post office machinery sorts by postal code anyway.

Good Morning All,

I'm assuming the 0.13 - 01.5Mb connection is why the Immersun isn't connecting currently?HuhHuh?

Good Afternoon All,

The broadband connection is that bad the Immersun isn't connecting properly and I can't even access the BT site to find the customer complaint tel. no. I had to text my wife at work to access BT on line to find the number!!!!!!!!!

Roll on DPD delivering the ee router and SIM card.

BT's days are numbered in this household.......

This message sent via a topped up 1Gb ee SIM card and external aerial................

Pinging this in the hope of getting updates... technology moves fast, right?

My landline speed down to 170kbs again. Line insufferably crackly again. Openreach engineers as rare as hens teeth again. The search is on for domestic 4g ‘insurance’ solution in poor, flukey signal area of neglected Norfolk. Again.
Cheers in advance,

chasfromnorfolk,

I'm using a Huawei aerial booster on an EE contract currently. I also have the EE supplied router but found the Speedport which I bought with the Huawei booster performs better.

I see circa 12 - 13Mb but the contract is expensive at £34.99 a month for 50Gb.

It suits my level of usage but wouldn't be anywhere near enough for the boys.......

Regards

Richard

Hmmm, what I think I’m looking for is an external antenna c/w router into which I’ll bung a pay as you go data sim when the  BT line fails. I had in mind buying the kit - can't search at the mo - but maybe the EE external deal might be the answer if there’s a get-out clause in the contract. There’s an EE shop in Norwich, I’ll see what they can offer.

Big day today. Openreach expected 8am omwards...

chasfromnorfolk,

I bought the following - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MIMO-Mobile-Broadband-Antenna-Booster-Huawei-B593-LTE-4G-150MBPS-52dbi-15M/253163208457?hash=item3af1b3ff09:g:rjwAAOSwLEtYk2gB

It certainly did the business for me.

Good Morning All,

BT work in weird and wonderful ways.

I was working on my Turner engined Land-Rover ahead of the Glamis Motoring Extravaganza this last weekend and was taking the vehicle down the road to the 'T' junction and back. I did this Wednesday and Thursday night and around Friday lunch time before loading it on the trailer.

What has this got to do with anything you may well ask?

I took it for a run last night and a BT green cabinet has appeared at this junction so I have to assume it was fitted yesterday. There is a line of fresh tarmac running across the road from the verge opposite so one assumes a trench was dug. I must admit I didn't notice the concrete plinth being 'poured' or any groundworks last week but I guess the plinth the cabinet is set on would be pre-cast.

There has been no advance 'warning' this momentous event was due to occur. The Digital Broadband Scotland site advises that BT have been working on the Kennethmont exchange since July last year though.

On the one hand this move has to be welcomed but having taken advantage of the Scotch Government scheme and the 'free' installation of satellite broadband (now no longer used) and having committed myself to an 18 month contract with ee for 40Gb at £35 a month (just tested at 36Mb) I now have a circa 10mb service from BT literally from out of the blue.

It will keep the two boys happy at least although I'm sure they'll still complain it isn't the 75Mb they get in Aberdeen.

Regards

Richard
