    Keeper of the hens

    Hi all,

    Our local BT exchange was recently (in the last day or so) enabled for superfast fibre broadband, so I've done the sums and pulled the trigger!

    Swapping providers from BT has enabled me to get a lot faster broadband for a little bit less than I'm paying now - result!

    It means that the streaming should be more reliable, maybe even with less buffering when you open the page. It will also mean we can go even higher in the image quality and resolution... Exciting!

    If anyone else wants a cracking deal on broadband (both fibre and standard), look no further than:

    Great value Unlimited Broadband from an award winning provider

    That's great, Neil. I'm going to fiber broadband next Thursday over here...I'm hoping it will be better than the connection I have now.:face-smile:

    Hey Lynne, ooh excited for both of us! :)

    I'm waiting for a "sorry we can't install it" from them so I am holding off my enthusiasm until it's actually here but I have to admit I'm looking forward to 10x faster internet...

    Argh I knew I should have kept my gob shut! Just received a text: "Your appointment has been rescheduled for the 27th"... :face-sad:

    So I have an extra 2 week wait. Lynne, you'll have to tell me what an improvement it is!

    I'm waiting for the same kind of call, saying they can't install it out here in the woods. :face-sad:
    The camstream will be offline till the 27th? All I see now is "the stream is offline."

    No! Should be up... Can you see it now? Part of the order process says "testing the line" so I'm assuming it made my broadband drop. I'm installing new software to try and keep the camstreams stream synced with my PC so that it can always find it, fingers crossed.

    Well... we're all fibred up, it seems a lot faster so hopefully the streaming will be improved too (and now I can not get too annoyed at the bandwidth the hencam streaming takes up all the time!)

    It shouldn't drop as much as well, so it's win-win.
