    Hi All, just thought I'd have a little rant about my ISP (MT) I recently moved home, foolishly I didn't check what internet services were available, prior to making my purchase. I assumed that the property described by Hartford as a "Luxury home" would have been built to the latest specification from an infrastructure point of view. (Why lay old style cables, when you know you will need to dig up the road at a late date?) Unfortunately my new location only allows me to obtain ADSL (8mb claimed by MT more like 4mb) . My previous property had all services available, which was nice. Until this point we hadn't realised how dependant our lifestyle had become on the internet. This massive downgrade has come as a "bit of a shock" to all of us. Streaming services struggle to supply a solid feed for more than one tv at any one time. With 2 kids in the house and the adult requirements, its painful during the evenings. After various calls with MT, I'm told there are no current plans to upgrade my area . When I look on the MT website, I see not only have some locations been upgraded once, they have subsequently been upgraded for a second time to optimal fibre Wouldn't it be better, to get the whole island up to a decent speed, before upgrading the already fortunate for a second time? I'm told by MT to register my interest on their webpage and they will contact me, if there are any developments. Before someone kindly makes the suggestion to use a 4G internet service, unfortunately again this option is also unavailable to me, as I only receive 1 bar on my mobile and 4g/3g only works for a few seconds at a time. Again MT/Sure tell me "they are aware of the poor signal strength in my area" I personally feel what they really mean is "your not in Douglas, so we don't give a f*ck!" Any thoughts?

  9. I actually live next door to someone that was burgled last week They did not tapper with the locks or use a glass cutter or any bullsh*t like that they simply smash the glass in the patio doors The bang was so loud it tripped our baby monitor unfortunately we thought my nipper had fell out of bed and never thought to look out the window My neighbour returned while they were still in the house they simple jumped the fence and ran into the darkness by the time the police were on scene there was no sign IMO a helicopter would have helped catch them as my house backs onto fields so they ran into the darkness. this whole incident has really upset my wife
