Internet went down last night couldnt even watch youview recordings, rant

I accept things can go wrong from time to time, in middle of watching a youtube video and half way through no internet. Gave it an hour or so still no joy. Its now 9.30 to early for bed so went to watch a youview recording from Natgeo, cant watch that either, must need internet to verify I have that channel even though its over a week old recording. What a joke that is, I pay for a service and can't watch it when I want too.

 

I since found out a mate of mine with BT also had internet down and so did a few of his mates all in Scarborough.

 

Why is this acceptable in this day and age?I been on internet since 1996/7 and yes it was bad then but we rely so much on technology too even for viewing tv like youview/netflix. I rarely watch normall tv

 

Oh and I am getting rid of youview when contract ends in June too many repeats, too many same old programs. Its getting boring I got youview because I was fed up of normal tv

Think yourself lucky you don't live here.

You'd be calling for the death penalty to be reinstated Grin

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Ironic our exchange was on fire many years ago just before internet around 1995. No one in town got a ounce of compensation from BT instead they gave it to a theatre as a donation. I am against death penalty accept Isis as we do them a favour so they can meet there maker earlier Wink

 

I gather a lot of our town was out of action last night so must be a local thing just shows how reliant we now are on technology. Smiley
