Will it get as far as Reay?
I hope so. I know broadband is faster than the old modems were but sometimes it is so bad I could pull my hair out. Weekends are the worst, and evenings. If I want to watch something off Amazon I have to download it during the day on a weekday. Can't watch anything via streaming in the evening. Kind of expected it all to have improved by now. Is it because BT don't have much competition in the far north?

Fibre optic cable is being installed out west so surely if Thurso is getting it then the cable will run through Reay? Or is that just too sensible an option?  Idea

Aye stick out west why waste money on those DURTY weekers better to install it out to bettyhill than let wick have it. With their six fingers I'm not sure it would be fair letting them have something that works so fast when they type so slow ! Rolling Eyes  Rolling Eyes

I want you to run BT's broadband department Jax.

Surley then, it would be those of us with only five fingers that would be digitally challenged in the typing department!?!! Question

I'd happly run BT's broadband for you Susie, I'd actually get some jobs done instead of faffing around like the normal jobs worth muppets.

Our broadband is total **it at the moment, normal excuse of "your too far from the exchange & oh you have to pay the premium for it too" just because we live rural!

Fooking rubbish thats all I can say, pay more get less..... Confused

Well, there's a million examples, you are one of them Laughing

But what happened to the high streets?

How many have committed suicide?

How much fraud and crime?

What about the dissemination of hate? er..etc.

I've had a lot of pretty lucrative jobs in the past. Most of which have been replaced pretty much by You know.

Taken the personal out of service.

On the up side, it is fun to keep up with the ever more barking conspiracy nuts.  Very Happy
