    Well 3 weeks late we finally got broadband on Saturday morning a week ago ,
    great 2Mb fast downloads, all was well with the world!!
    Monday early morning still working, Monday lunchtime zilch, nada, nothing,
    phoned BTbroadband, "wait and phone back tommorrow....."
    went thru all there checks, "sorry it's a fault at your end you will have to
    phone 0871...." but that costs? more tests , including trying a 2nd
    computer? "yes, it's a fault at this end"..(I knew that, the whole exchange
    is out), six days later it's still not working. BT broadband admits it's a
    major outage,
    BTbroadband phoned me to give me an update... there is no update, no idea
    when it's going to be working again
    Oh well......... so that would be 48 hours of superfast internet access
    then.... welcome to the the age of modern communications? Just as well I've
    still got good old slow (but fairly reliable) old dial up
