What did we do before broadband was available?

I’m finally back online after spending almost a week without my usual high speed internet access. I sprated experiencing loss of connection last tuesday. The link spend most of its time down and NTL scheduled an engineer to have a look at it. It was almost a week before they could get out to me, but now its fixed.

The problem appears to have been due to NTL doing some maintenance in the network equipment that effectively blocked old (5 years +) cable modems from working or giving a very slow performance. Once new cable modem was installed and activated it all started running at full speed again!

While I had no fast internet access I had to resort to an old 56k pstn modem to dial up and check emails. This was painfully slow compared to what I’ve been used to for the last 5 or 6 years!
