Demon our ISP, announced a week or so ago that we’d been upgraded to ‘ADSL2+’. Being so far away from the Exchange, I expected it to make no difference at all, so I binned the letter. Then, towards the end of last week, I noticed that things were indeed faster. Time for a bit of testing then!
The test results show that we’re now on and eye-watering 2Mbps download speed :). Given that Virgin already provide (for some) a 50Mbps connection, our speed sounds a bit pathetic; but round here, anything greater than 1Mbps is very welcome. Especially so, given a few years back, we were languishing on 0.5Mbps!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
