coming to a home near you
A team dug up our north east garden and proceeded to add the bright orange conduit tubing that would carry the fibre cable from an aerial terminal in the north west of our yard to the nearby central office by a convoluted route that made a distinct u-turn and connected to another fibre cable in a manhole near-by. Great, I thought, we can finally switch over from Satellite. "No", said one supervisor, "it will take a few months to connect you to the fibre". And sure enough, it took another FOUR months to connect us!
