Broadband connection from hell!

Orange...if you're listening your connection stinks!
My mum has got the raving hump with Orange Broadband. She has been with them for years....from Freeserve who got bought out by Wanadoo who then got taken over by Orange. Since Orange have owned it the service keeps crashing...at least twice a month and for hours ech time. The people who mum talks to are rude too and last night she had 3 people put the phone down on her when she asked if there was a problem with the service in London! What's that all about!!!

So ,I've not left the country fellow bloggers....I've just not had a connection!

Stay tuned please I have lots to tell you about!

* Speeds in excess of 2 meg are only available in certain areas. Top speeds vary significantly, particularly according to how far away you live from the exchange. If your line won’t support Orange’s fastest broadband speed they’ll give you the best available. The speed you actually get can also vary depending on the quality of your line, the wiring in your house, the time of day and even the weather.

When you hear broadband providers or your colleagues and friends talking about "wireless" they could actually

be talking about two separate things:Wireless

Networking
, having a wire free computer in the house connected to a broadband connection.

, this is a special kind of broadband package

where you can use it at home, but also in certain places when you are away from home. All you need is your phone

number or pastcode to see if either of these broadband connections are available and you can check it at
