... but Virgin Media have just managed it.

Broadband speed and connection reliability has been diabolical here this afternoon and, as usual, going to VM's "Service Status" page tells me all is in perfect order... NOT.

So I phoned them up only to be told, be a very knowledgeable individual that the problem is the hot weather. It causes havoc with the fibre optics... apparently :lol:

They need to use gold plated connectors, then the heat wouldn't be a problem.

Ah - I see what you mean :lol:

I have to say though, that some people do tend to take advantage of the gullible. The fibre optic links on the Typhoon are, shall we say, mission-critical, but gold plated connectors?
