Hola from the land of melting snow and enlightened fibre.

Back from yet more travels.

Escaped the UK just as the snow started to fall. Got back to Andorra to a sparking sunny day... it didn't last - heavy snow fell during the night and hasn't stopped much since.

Well this week has been interesting, speed overall has ben good, but it does drop to around 10 -12 meg at the weekend - if this is due to a large number of users or not I am not sure. Most of the time it is at a healthy 35-45 meg range.
