Re: Streetlights? What are they?
You were lucky you had a streetlight, sheer luxury.*
The village my parents live in has no street lights never did and the BT phone box which does have a light in it has a blown bulb. The mobile signal outside is patchy on some networks and non existent on others, inside go to the top of your house near a window and pray. Broadband does work but it ain't anywhere near fast, never mind though Brexit will fix all this.
