Ian - ok get it. (broadband ,that is) in the first video the rib nearly flips on its
arse- a slightly bigger wave and its 'hallo sea". The only thing -codprawn please help- is that it does not seem to be going fast ??? ( fast I mean 50knts+) and the sea looks pretty tame - nice long swell ect. Comments gents.
As regards broad band any ribber woth his salt -gets this before a rib. How can you expect to communicate with this fab site at 36/50 kps??
I am in belgium and they have upgraded us-- wait for it.. to 3.0 mbyts/sec and soon we will go to 4. (m= MEGA) This is ADSL and not cable.
Dont tell that BT is still making you dial up??

HI Jonathan
i have enquired about broadband, they will not put it in till at least 30% of the houses here ask for it and as most are old people with no computers i'm stuffed, we don't even have gas.

I will be moving at the end of the month, so i should get broadband at the new place and it's got gas.

Most places in the UK do have broadband now - only rural areas lagging behind. I have a 1mb connection which costs me 27 per month or 39 EU with NO download limit - you have to be carefull because many people with high speed connections are capped on their download limits - most people only look at the odd website rather than download constantly!!!

How much is you connection costing and are there any limits??? The Americans are starting to fall way behind with their speeds/costs.

Hi codprawn
I am in a rural area, that is the problem.

The next house is going to be in Plymouth, i doubt there will be a problem there.

Who are you using ???? as i have never used broadband, who is going to be the best provider and is having a down load limit a problem. I am with Freeserve/wanado (or what ever they are called this week) it's 13-99 a month.

Hard to say - so many about! Demon are very good and provide great backup - if you have cable tv get NTL broadband which is what I have - they aren't perfect but at least you get a proper cable modem with an rj45 lead instead of USB shit.

Why base the supplier decision on the hardware supplied? 'specially as the cost of a wireless system is getting cheaper and cheaper. 99 will get you a wireless router and a PCMCIA card for a laptop, and you can still use cables for up to 4 PCs.

Having said that, I share your dislike of USB modems!

What's the problem with USB routers? Mine seems to work OK - I just figured it was easier to plug it in rather than go internal.
