Re: Fast Broadband

We get 17mbps in our Derbyshire holiday on plain copper ADSL. The guests love it they got through 25 GB in one recent week. Ironically there's FTTC  available in the village, but in the nearby town where I live FTTC is a vague drifting date in 2016.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Wifi is always fast - typically 54Mbps which is far faster than most broadband connections.
So whats so special about Bournemouth wifi? - Or do you normally use 802.11b which is ancient?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

They probably have a rather fast line to the hotel, seeing as everyone and everything including the kitchen sink has to be connected to the internet these days, even when on holiday... Grin

COPPER, Derbyshire this morning...
It's usually always around 19mb/s mark these days


Back in 2011, it was consistently faster, 24mb/s COPPER
