Is this possibly the worst broadband in the world?

Reg hack uses site to raise beef with BT?

So you have a problem with your broadband? I don't see how this has any relevance to your readers and is simply a way of you trying to escalate a personal problem with BT.

Re: Image Compression

My images from a PC have uploaded at full size and the iPhone app has an option in settings to either resize or send original. Cant vouch for the Android app however.

Re: @Longmeister - why not stored in the cloud?

Well I have a 9Mbps upload at home and 15Mbps in the office - both on a basic BT Infinity connection. Most Virgin cable lines have decent upload speeds now too so I dont think the issue of bandwdith when uploading data is as critical as it was a few years back.

Re: or this

Why do you have to map a drive? THe software creates a Skydrive folder in the same way Dropbox or Google Drive does. If you are using Win7 then you can move the default location of your libraries (pics/docs etc) to be within this folder so your new files are shoved into the cloud without intervention.

I pay £16/year for 75GB of cloud storage which works as a backup and I can view all of my pics and videos from any PC on earth or my iPhone.

Re: why not stored in the cloud?

Why? Skydrive does sync it to the cloud so you can view it on your phone using a pretty slick app. Upload speeds on an FTTC connection are up to 20Mbps - thats hardly slow?
