  1. Anyone else find that listening to Paul Moulton from MT is like having your ears drilled. He's simply awful!! If you're a journalist interviewing people, surely the job requirements are to be able to speak clearly, be understood and not waffle / feign being irate
  2. I know people who genuinely believe that this 5G stuff is causing coronavirus. I am just lost for words at the stupidity of people. Treating that David Icke interview as gospel. Stunningly thick.
  3. Honestly, i was considering writing to someone in Gov about it, but to be honest would take weeks for a generic, uncaring reply
  4. Probably mentioned previously by someone, but i was absolutely flabbergasted that they made the announcement about extra staff being put on at the crematorium. What a thing to send out! Surely someones head must roll over that? What would pensioners think reading that announcement!!!!
  5. I noticed that up until recently they were offering the services based on speed 100,200,500 etc However, there is now no mention of speed, and merely essential, fast, ultrafast, superfast, megafast and lightning fast What has changed, and why is this now no longer mentioned? Are they struggling to guarantee the speeds? How are you supposed to know what speed you will get?
  6. Hey, So i don't use their supplied router, i have a Draytek 130 VDSL modem which connects to the USG (i actually have a USG-Pro now) Works great. Would love to see Fibre in Onchan though, but not going to hold my breath! Oh sorry just to add, you add the PPPoE credentials in the WAN section of the network tab in settings on the USG, i dont think it needs doing on the modem, but my setup may differ from yours!
  7. Thanks John! I'll get some more local quotes and see if they will be reasonable... Dreading the cost of a local assessor...!
  8. I have made a claim for water damage at my property (not flood related!), and the loss adjuster (who was a nice chap but appointed by and working for the insurance company) has been around and after an extensive investigation and meticulous cost analysis (or schedule as he called it...) on his tablet program, has made an estimate for repair which is far below local quotes i have obtained for the work to be completed. As i just want the work completed, am i entitled to ask the insurance company to arrange the repairs themselves? If they believe fixing it will only cost £3000, and i can not have the work completed for anything near that, then i would rather they send the relevant tradesmen / materials over themselves. They would need a plumber (or two) and a painter and decorator I've no interest in simply trying to "make a few quid" here via a nice cash settlement, i just want the work completing and the house back to normal. Any suggestions? Insurance is with Tesco (Royal Sun Alliance, via Sedgwick formerly Cunningham Lindsey.) thanks
  9. Looking to have a new ensuite bathroom fitted after the shower leaked into our lounge, so hoping for a recommendation for someone who can come up and quote for everything I would like cement board / kerdi board around the shower, not plasterboard, and i need the tiled floor pulling up and chipboard removing too. Looking at a new shower tray, glass, tiling etc This is going through insurance, so need the quote asap, and ideally the work completing well before xmas thanks
  10. I've tried speaking to MT about this, and they just say they are "2 years into a 5 year plan" Does anyone have any inside knowledge, about timescales for certain areas? I'm up in Onchan, and can only get the 100Mbps VDSL service, so very keen for fibre I completed the fibre expression of interest webform, and also went to every house in the neighbourhood and encouraged neighbours to do the same, which many did (and were quite happy about as they know nothing about it!)
  11. I am unfortunately dealing with Sedgwick (formerly Cunningham Lindsey) They have an atrocious reputation, so crossing my fingers for a successful resolution. It's not a huge claim by any means!
  12. In the process of an insurance claim on the house, and considering covering myself by hiring a loss assessor, as i know the current loss adjuster will be working on the side of the insurance company to ultimately minimise the payout, and consequently maybe affect the quality of the repair work thanks
