We have had the same problem with broadband as John (Ward’s World, October 13).
From December this year we have had little or no internet.
• Three new routers
• 15 or so engineers (the majority say the line is past its sell by date)
• Hours upon hours on the phone
• Days off work for engineers
Finally, we had internet that was stable for two weeks at 9 mb. Although it cut out about six times in that period, I thought that might be overuse by my son.
I would cut off the phone line if it wasn’t for my children’s school homework and online university entrance.
If I ran my business like they do, I would not have a business for very long.
We are at our wit’s end with this – it causes that many arguments and is the biggest cause of unrest in our home.
I never thought something so trivial would have such an effect on our daily lives.
I am beginning to hate the internet!
It’s okay if you live in the city but us, as a rural community, are going to be left behind.
