It's worse with Optimus 3g, and they didn't send us any notification. For a couple of days last week we were getting download speeds of between 0.02 and 0.04 (that is not a misprint, yes 0.02 to 0.04!).

Fixed line is not an available option for where we are in the sticks, we will have to look at the Satellite internet options.

Be careful with the current satellite Internet options!

I heard over the grapevine this weekend that Tooway have been having problems with their provider.

Methinks for now looks like the best option.
