For months we have had terrible noise on the phone line and broadband that keeps dropping. every time Sky check they say the line is fine, well okay but nothing is working so what are you actually testing? Three days later Openreach engineer turns up when the problem isn't occurring and declares nothing wrong (no ****!), but tells me on the QT that there is a problem on the main road but they would need temporary traffic lights, and as it's close to current roadworks they wouldn't get permission.

Almost everyday the broadband drops, today has been a nightmare with it only being up for about 10 minutes at a time at best. Received a text from Openreach saying we've fixed your problem. Broadband speed test shows a download speed of 1.36 Mb/s and upload speed of 6.05 Mb/s and continues to drop :? Err no you haven't. Contacted Sky on their My Sky App at 19:10 as the lines were very busy. Took over an hour to respond, I replied immediately then nothing except for 'Our message service ends at 21:00, please message us tomorrow morning to continue'.

They are getting both barrels over the phone in the morning *****!


Or possibly not?

Maybe because you're not allowed to smoke in the venues any more?

Sometime ago, when I was staying in Tallinn lots of basement bars and once smoking was banned they all smelt of p*ss (and not a single ginger in sight).

:D on the mobile, and they did. Result, not our problem it's Openreach, you have to wait up to 5 days!

Have already confirmed though I'll get full refund for the last three months it's been ****ed up but given I work from home it's affecting my business as well, that's another conversation to be had!

The "separation" of BT from Openreach is one of the all-time great wheezes.

If you're getting consistent 4G on your phone, and you don't have a super-restrictive limit on data allowance, you could always set up your phone as a wifi hotspot, and use that as a backup link when your BB goes down again?

Nationwide blocking my card per usual once a month, now for buying tickets on Stubhub and a new passport. Absolutely ridiculous, I don't mind them being cautious, it's a joke now. Starting to think I'm on a watch list on something. Might order some nails and explosives and see if I get a knock at the door, I only bleeding use it at Tesco, the odd bet and odd online buy from reputable sites

Good suggestion, but 4G doesn't seem to exist round here in sunny North Hampshire. I've been in the Sahara desert with better signal.

All mobile providers claim we have perfect coverage in the area, but despite there being a phone mast not too far away the signal has always been appealing.

Good news though, the BB speed is now up to 4 Mb/s

When you tell people about a film/tv show and they respond with "it's not really my sort of thing" and then 6-12 months later they ask if you've watched said programme.

My wife's American cousin is a real estate agent together with her husband. They live and work in Las Vegas and are very successful and co-founded an influential realtors association out there. Thier life is all very much fake tits, shiny teeth and desperate housewives. I'm sure you get the picture.
They stayed with us for a couple of weeks the year before last when visiting. They are Very 'American'.
Today they, together with thier realtors association have just posted on Facebook a competition. It's a raffle. The tickets cost $20. The prize is a Bushmaster AR-15 assault rifle.

This irritates me quite a lot for obvious reasons and I really want to post something back but fear it will all kick off.
No wonder the US is so ****ed up. Whatever happened to raffles for meat, booze, chocolates and toiletries. :(
