Our Internet keeps cutting out and trying to call their offices to find out why is a joke. Is anyone else having the same problem?

Yes we are. Have been on the phone to them several times - they said they have had problem since Friday (when it went off altogether) and it is now running slow but it should be sorted later today or tomorrow. I think other ISP are also having problems at the minute. Its so annoying because it affects skype also. Fingers crossed they willl get it sorted.

Reliability that's the thing.... when it's working well I get about 490 kbps download... it's OK..



To me the acid test is if you watch Youtube and the download outpaces the playback... which it does at these speeds

RE Jock1 - msg 10 : (...) we have been down all weekend, only just got back on line today, we are with nethouse networks. (...)



===> Call the Nethouse Networks owner on his private number (which he very much dislikes) and your problem will be solved while you're having a coffee.

You think you all got problems. I silly enough had SunnyCyprus installed last week. Not bad 40 install and 40 a month for 750kbps. But do I get 70kbps, oh no, 100k if lucky normally nothing or 40kbps. Think they can have kit back!!

Re nethouse networks. My brother uses them and remarked yesterday that on Saturday night he had best download speed ever, about 8 times better than usual. Now we know why.



BTW we are with Extend and it was down more than up over the weekend. Better now but still experiencing some sloooow spells.

Sitting having a cup of tea on a T-Mobile wireless dongle connection and only getting 8.7MB/s....Ouch...



Sorry couldn't resist that one. But remember guys 3G capability is now available in the TRNC.



Want to sign-up and get blinding Broadband Internet? Interesting thought eh!
