Yesterday afternoon two Telefonica enginners finally turned up and fixed my faulty phone line. It needed new wiring along the corridor and was all sorted out in a couple of hours. My phone is now better than it has ever been since I have lived here - all crackling has gone, it doesn't drop my Internet connection and it rings properly. It had suffered from not doing so and only giving half a ring, while speaking on it could often become impossible due to all the crackling noise and I'd have to apologise for having a bad line. For the last week it has been off far more than on and had no dialling tone when it was on!
But now it is all working as it should! Hooray!
I am glad you are back. But I believe it's the high time you started using wireless connection to the internet. Today, you can get high 3G speeds by using broadband modem at very low rates. You can purchase two or three modems from wireless phone providers so that you can have plan A, Plan B or even Plan C.
In my country here we have an investment of British mobile network operator - Vodafone, which is providing internet connection at such high broadband speeds to the most remote areas of this planet. If they can do it here so successfully, why are they not doing it in their home country?
Thank you for your messages, World of the Wise, Dame Scribe and ngureco!
Ngureco, one problem - to use such technology doesn't it mean I have to have a mobile phone?
In a word, no!
He is saying that Vodafone, who are a mobile company, provide his internet.
All you need is a wireless router, but if you are using a desktop then that would be pointless. If you have a laptop on the other hand.... then wireless is essential!
This is it:
The wireless USB broadband Modem looks like a USB stick/flash disk. Connect it to USB port of any pc in any location and you’re done.
The wireless USB broadband Modem supports 3G speeds of HSDPA/UMTS/EDGE/GPRS with speeds going up to 14.4Mbps. You may never reach 14.4Mbps but you’ll easily reach 2Mbps.
Bard - welcome back indeed!
And to save me walking over to the post about your endeavours on HP - CONGRATULATIONS :d
You can use the USB broadband modem in any computer – desktop or laptop. All you need is a USB port and Windows XP and above. You can use it at home with your desktop computer. You can then unplug the USB broadband modem and carry it to your desktop computer in your office.

Seriously beginning to think Verizon (my ISP) is picking on me, as in as sticking me in the slow lane.Or could the unusually cold weather be causing the problems?
