Lack of blogging today results from having a new Internet connection installed, at last.
We’re now connected to the Internet thru a BT Infinity Home Hub. This connection to internet isn’t at the loss of cables though. There’s the modem with three cables, the Home Hub with two cables, the telephone with two cables, urrrrgggghhh, the cable trauma is awful for a tidy minimalist like me.
Cables apart, the speed is amazing. Using the speedtest.net speed checker, here’s what we have. Connected by ethernet cable to the Home Hub, a staggering 37 megabits per second. Connecting wirelessly the speed is a lot less and dependant on distance from the Hub, but still almost 20 mbps.
Was the process painless? No, it wasn’t. It’s a bit like going to the dentist, who finds new things at each visit. Also the fear of going to the dentist is similar to the fear of loss of an internet connection to the outside world.
Oh, and the final painful experience, looks like I’ll have to upgrade both computers, which I’ve sort of put off for a while now, but now know I can’t any longer.
