    Super fast Virgin fibre optic, they installed special wires - down to the gamers in the house, I now reap the perks it seems!

    Virgin cable ... I just measured our download speed ... 10.89Mbps.

    On a good day we have 6Mbps - but it’s unreliable & sometimes it’s down to 3 or less. No access to superfast broadband so this is a fact of life rather than a lifestyle choice.

    It’s good enough for day to day stuff but unable to stream HD TV and films and large photos on here load line by painful line.

    Not too bad if it’s just one photo but I’ve had to stop using any photo heavy threads. That includes the Garden Gallery and quite a few of the new plant ID’s and requests for help with garden design etc.

    Heaven is ... sitting in the garden with a G&T and a cat while watching the sun go down
