This happened in our street the last weeks and made me happy(ish):
Normally I’m not the least bit excited about perfectly good streets getting ripped open, quite the opposite in fact, but this time it means we will be getting fiber optic internet. Yay!
We currently have cable (for digital TV, home phone and internet) and besides the phone service it sucks teh monkeys balls. Digital TV has crap reception here, internet isn’t nearly half as fast as it should be. With the fiber optic will only be half as good as they tell us, it will still be twice as good as the cable is now.
In three weeks time we should have the connect inside the house, hopefully the provider will connect us soon after that. *fingers crossed*
Some other entirely unrelated facts:
- About the iPad I said I would not buy one very soon and I’ve proven myself a liar: it is awesome.
- One of my WordPress plugins has more than 20.000 downloads: also awesome.
- My Playstation 3 died (YLOD): not awesome.
