Our local exchange has just been enabled for fibre and they are rolling it out to a couple of cabinets in town.
We however are located 4k away from the exchange and nowhere near the cabinets.
we do have a live fibre connection (which was previously used for ISDN30) to the local exchange unfortunately as Openreach control virtually all of the rural broadband in the country there is no way I can find of getting the fibre, that connects our building to the exchange, used for broadband.
BT did offer me a leased line though at £800.00 per month. :-(.
I can remember splashing out for Wordperfect for Amiga.
a real word processor on the Amiga although Digita's offering wasn't bad though a bit more graphics orientated.
Re: streamed playback?
I can stream content from my Humax freeview hdr to the freeview hd box with the standard firmware I use powerline adapters to acheive this but others in my family manage with wi-fi dongles as well.
I can also stream from the Foxsat satellite box using custom firmware.
I would think these figures are wildly optimistic even at these low averages.
We have fibre into our building now, for isdn30, but no hope of using for broadband for the foreseeable future.
Humax's have been OK for me.
I've had Humax's since the 9200 and had very few problems.
The 9200's started to get a bit problematical after 4 or 5 years but a cold boot normally fixes that .
The Freesat HD might lock up once in 6 months or so but I don't use that much now as the user interface of the FOX-HDR is much better IMHO and now you can have the FOX HD and watch content on the HDR using that it's gettting much better.
Now looking forward to being able to programme them over the net :-). It might even be available on hacked versions I haven't looked recently.
