I was called to help a family towards the far end of Wykehurst Lane with an unreliable and pitifully slow connection. Because of the poor aging “noisy” long lines which are connected via the Bull’s Head cabinet and then back … Continue reading

I’ve helped two more residents in difficulties demonstrating that their connections are not fit for broadband purpose. One in Moon Hall Road had a faulty line which produced the lowest speed test result I’ve ever seen at only 68 Kbps, … Continue reading
Another adventure into the Ewhurst BT jungle
I spent a pleasant morning yesterday walking the fields below Peaslake Road, looking for electric fences
We have been grinding on with an intermittent fault in Holmbury Road for nearly two years now.
At 7:27am on Friday June 18th 2010 my broadband connection speed halved, from 1360 to 668 Kbps (according to the BT speed tester) on my business line in Horsham Lane.
