Virgin Media mops up CEO's 'boll*cks' outburst

When Will We Learn

As always, the average user loses out when believing words such as "unlimited" - there really is no such thing with most if not all of the main broadband providers.

If you do happen to have cable broadband, however, you're a lot better off than we in rural North Yorkshire who have to contend with 'slightly better than dial up' speed levels, and an intermittent broadband supply.

I actually found Australia offered better service to rural locations, where satellite broadband was a viable alternative to our overloaded and working above capacity ADSL lines.

Fasthosts' dedicated servers go titsup

If you pay peanuts

We're with Fasthosts because they are cheap, and we needed a reasonably large server (their top size) to test our new domain - see if it was profitable - before investing in a more substantial and expensive server. Unfortunately, we would have got away with today's outage had it happened next month - we're all ready to move to a proper host now we're making sufficient revenue.

A shame then that this is losing us money hour after hour today.
