I dunno if this question is techy enough but it doesn't seem "Interesting" enough for OT
When I got my new place a couple of years ago I knew I wanted some fast fibreoptic broadband and as I looked around there was one company that did free line setup / install, which was good for me as I needed that and it was expensive from some providers. I went for 30meg as it was only slightly more expensive than 10meg. Then a few months ago they doubled the speed, luckily I was in an area that was being trialed or something, the only majorly populated area they chose I think, so apparently I get 60meg now (the 30meg connection was always bang on but the new doubled speed seems a bit more inconsistent, 45-60 usually). Only about 3meg uplaod but that doesn't matter to me as far as I know. Low ping, but it seems a bit variable, goes from 10 usually to 100 when it's bad.
The expense of telephone calls on my landline is horrific, I just stick to mobile usually as I get enough minutes on that so it works out ok as I'd be paying mobile charges anyway.
