Off Again

No not me – broadband – just when I thought everything had been fixed it went off last Friday and came on, albeit stutteringly, half an hour ago.   Thanks for various responses to obtianing a better broadband coverage.   We are actively seeking funding through local government grants but that seems long winded.  We have been advised that the local exchange could be 'upgraded' for £100,000.00 but no-one will confirm what difference this would make.   We still have the copper wires with a maximum 6.5 kms suitable to carry a reasonable broadband signal (all of 1/2 meg if we are lucky).   BET (broadband enabling technology) could stretch this to 12 kms at a cost of a thousand pounds per line.   A far cheaper option if local funding is thinly spread.   We shall see.
