Back Online

I’m now online at home. This means you’ll be able to IM / VOIP me again.
I have TalkTalk’s ‘free’ broadband (£8.99 per month for free UK calls anytime, plus up to 8MB internet) and have just run a speed test on it:

Download: 6756 kbps
Upload: 365 kbps

Lots of people complain about the speed of TalkTalk’s connection, but at this price I think it’s quite reasonable. Hopefully I wont have technical problems, because that’s another big problem area.

  2. Hi gEORGE,

    I agree that having to pay for tech support on a service that has faults it is terrible way to treat the customer.

    Fortunately I’ve been lucky enough not to have to worry about this as I’m a bit handy with tech so I don’t need to rely on their useless ‘support’.

    In fact I’d go as far as to offer my support to you. Here are two top tips that’ll be useful for any ISP you use now or in the future:

    1) Change your default username and password.
    2) Turn on all available security features.

    If you need a detailed explanation of why then just send me an email. In fact please do contact me, because I can’t remember a George that I know in Bristol (so have no way to contact you) and I think it’s very important that you tighten up your woefully insecure online presence. I’d be happy to offer more compelling evidence that these actions are necessary – but not here in public.
