I can’t get broadband… :(

Despite DETINI having paid BT �10 million to ensure that Northern Ireland has 100% broadband coverage and an announcement to say that it has been achieved, I am back on dial-up Internet access.

Last week, my neighbour who applied for access before me finally got a letter from BT’s Frank McManus saying that BT actually only had 99% coverage and he would be unable to get broadband, but he should consider Satellite instead.  Thus I’m not holding out much hope of me getting it either.

The BT contract notes that only ADSL or 5.8Ghz Wireless Radio broadband would be considered acceptable, so why is BT allowed to tell him (and possibly me) we cannot have broadband?   Theres a real stink to this and I’d love to hear from others if they too, in Northern Ireland, cannot get broadband because �10m DETINI money says that should not be the case.

  1. I live in Strabane in Ireland and could not get broadband on till i found a company
    called Mediasatellite who were able to provide me with a 2way system and life has never been better the servics is great and the customer services is out of this world if any body out there who wants a free and easy broadband life then mediasat has tobe the answer.

  2. Shame their one-way service doesn’t shine just as much.

    But of course, it wasn’t *really* a technical fault last weekend, was it fellahs?

    ‘Per ardua ad Astra’ (if I don’t pay my bills on time, the system owner will switch me off)
