Fake internet known as broadband does'nt work any more by 7[_2_]
Fake internet known as broadband does'nt work any more ------------------------------------------------------ Fake internet sold as broadband doesn't work any more in the age of IoT. Stick a home server and try to access it remotely, the best of luck! It will take hours to download a directory full of work files.

Is it better to install 1gbit fibre or 10gbit fibre in UK plc? by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]

The answer is dark fibre and you stick whatever kit you want at each end... Oh and you do NOT need 100 cores - just a few (for redundancy).

Hyperoptic rubbish? by Bob Eager[_3_]
