Realise I haven't updated for a while. Probably most people saying thank god
Anyway evenings have been a little less worse not dipping below 10 and staying around 20 - which on the whole you don't tend to notice as much.
On Thursday I noticed an Openreach engineer on my drive fiddling with outdoor wall socket. He hadn't knocked, I assume because of social distancing, but I did speak to him through window and he just said he had been sent to check connection, which he said all with a constant sync of 80:20 or near as dammit. Anyway I suppose it is good they checked but feel it was a little bit of waste of time for him..
Also today I have big projects on that I need solid internet (recording skype video calls) so I have split my network - house is running on 3 mobile broadband and I have my laptop solely on the Origin line - nothing else connected at all -
So I can now also do long term true tests with out in-house contention - without peeing off rest of household..
The plot thickens...
Uno - I had almost plumped to go for it but the problem is I can't justify fibre only cost and the Phone/broadband duo package is almost too cheap...
It says it has a min of 20mb/s guaranteed (which is i assume during peak times) but I wonder what I would get majority of time.... if it was 20mb/s all the time it wouldn't be great but if that is just a really low base line figure so they can please rather disappoint then I am sure it would be ok..
