Broadband isn't working

I really don't want to clog up the blogosphere with yet more moaning. But I'm afraid I will.

I really don't want to clog up the blogosphere with yet more moaning. But I'm afraid I will.

At my place of work, the broadband is supplied by a large british telecoms company who shall remain nameless. Everyone in the building has to add special DNS settings to be able to see websites. I seem to be singled out for special treatment on account for my Free Software tastes, so that Linux (Ubuntu & Mint) will only occasionally connect to the wireless router.

Ditto the cafe I frequent - a british telecoms company and intermittent broadband.

I have a heard of half a dozen similar problems with the same company across the small town where I live. Now, this is a straw poll based on my scant and unscientific experience.

But whatever the cause (and blame), countless thousands of working hours are lost due to rubbish broadband connectivity.

How can we be a nation at the digital forefront of working practices if we can't even pick up our email?
