    The response you got seemed helpful to me. I have had lots of useful responses from general as well.

    At the moment there seem to be a few in the professional forums who get upset when they don't like the response they get. Not very nice when people are trying to help.

    I listen to all advice then take the advice I want to here.

    I always think those who talk about cliques *tend* to have troubles getting on with other.

    On the other hand, I know there is a CUK clique and I was black-balled from joining. In fact, when they emptied the bag with the balls in, it looked like the bottom of a rabbit's cage.....
    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.

    Move home or go Dial up was a helpful response?

    There were at least 2 other suggestions. I get the feeling you read the first line of my post and no further?

    The most important bit - if you don't like a response just ignore it. Cojak is incredibly good at this - most of us need to do better....

    Why is your broadband bad? Because you live in the middle of nowhere or just a poor provider?

    That said it's all the same infrastructure isn't it?

    It's just where I am, everyone in the building has bad speeds, all with different providers. Hyperoptic is going to be installing here, so up to 1GB speeds, but that could be up to a year away...

    What is it you do, and what speed to you need?

    I've managed to work from home before with < 512k (normally around 300k) so it is perfectly possible as long as you are careful about your use.

    You also got -

    1. Rent an office/desk space with broadband from me

    2. Satellite broadband from Brillo

    I was thinking of something else but then I remembered BT don't install those lines anymore.

    I am also aware some people in parts of large cities as well as those in rural locations have crap broadband.

    Oh Brillo and I aren't in any clique. Though I have got round to overtly calling an insensitive a-hole yet.
