    I'M in shock....jeez, that's ... well...unheard of.
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    I had a similar shock the other day. I placed an inquiry regarding funeral insurance by e-mail on Thursday. Within about 2 minutes of clicking SEND, I had a phone call from someone who was quite friendly and helpful.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    That's how it should work if there has been a previous fttn connection at the premises, but rarely does it seems.

    Superloop are pretty good, fast speeds at all times and you can opt out of cg Nat instantly via your online control panel.

    Some years ago, the Basslink optical fibre between Tasmania and Mainland Australia failed. A number of ISPs fell back to very slow backup connections and basically told their Tasmanian customers to suck it up until Basslink was repaired.

    They had a rude surprise when the locals discovered that they could just call up a rival ISP who had good bandwidth and have the new ISPís service available on another port on their NTD within in some cases) 20 minutes.
