Cumbria is quite big, but because Wigton was mentioned on the news, they thought, "This is it. Our broadband could be sorted now". 1Mbps, 2Mbps, DACs, lack of enough copper lines etc - whoosh, straight over their heads.
You try telling people that broadband is 100Mbps symmetrical, or it should be. Not a chance here.
I flogged them a satellite dish. Made me a fortune. Not.
By the time I had explained how ADSL works, why it will NEVER work at their house some 14km from the exchange etc, why BET makes no difference whatsoever, what broadband is about etc, I can only ever be out of pocket.
Why can't the telcos be made to tell the truth? Why is it my job (unpaid) to educate the masses?
