Thanks for writing in this time of doom, gloom, and many other totally unfunny things.
Re: where you live, my parents live there and have cable internet. Granted, it's SFR, but kind of works and it's fast.
Or perhaps just like most of your compatriots you chose to buy a rundown (but charming, with plenty of character) old manor in some obscure outskirts of M, that you will spend the rest of your life playing "Rénovation impossible" (Flip N move) with. :D
With a one-pair copper cable barely reaching the house. And behind a big hill that hides the nearest cell tower.
You guys are weird, but at least thanks to you we can sell our rundown houses located in desert places. And then someone buy a rundown café nearby and opens an English pub. And that's cool.
Thanks as well for the surreal "chat" between ministers, I didn't see that, it didn't make much noise in the press (strangely).
