Beautiful Broadband

I live on the end of a long lane with lots of trees and overhead telephone lines. Consequently, about every six months or so, one of my lines goes very noisy.

The phone line on which broadband is piggy-backed has just gone that way.

Voice quality is atrocious, so much so that BT have switched the line to my mobile at no charge. But broadband still keeps marching along! Well most of the time, as occasionally it drops out.

Isn’t technology wonderful?

I can remember when it was difficult and dodgy to get 10 characters a second down a phone line. I bet they’re actually not much better these days!
