Re: Can I retrain my connection?


[re: Bald_Eagle1] [link to this post]
 
I only ever refer to BT:-
a) because it is less typing

OR ? Seems to be as about as easy to type as BT ?

One Openreach engineer actually told me that if he was having a chat about FTTC matters with another Openreach engineer in the shared canteen, they have been specifically instructed to cease the conversation if a non-Openreach engineer walks in for his bacon butty.

Canteen ?? Spoiled gits. No canteens round this way, a kettle and occasionally a microwave. [glum]

O.K. I'll try to remember, but I'm at that "funny" age now frown

Microwave? A [censored] Microwave?

I have a "soft" job now, but having been in the Building Industry all of my working life, I still "fondly" remeber being sat on a cement bag, p#ssed wet through, in the back of a clapped out Transit van & even more "fondly" remember crapping in a cold galvanised bucket & wiping the old arris with a bit torn off the aforementioned cement bag.

Happy days though...........

Hi Bob,

Do you mean talking about soft jobs & crapping in a bucket?

Or do you mean can I actually remember how to spell remember?

Pray, do tell. Where I have made the gaffe smile

Or is it just that obvious that I can't see it (at my "funny" age)?

I draw the line at posting it to someone I don't wish to insult. Pity, because the chance of posting it in reply to anyone I do wish to insult is approximately zero.

As WW says, did the engineer, after swapping out the modem, make a call to get the sync rate recalculated ?

No sadly he did not.

This isn't the be-all and end-all, even after a recalc, I have seen that throughput is being 'capped' by 'something'. Though this usually isn't the case.


Can I get on to my ISP to see if they can get anything done ?
