Frequently asked Questions and Answers
I'm a long way from the telephone exchange, can you still help me?
Yes, we probably can still help. In fact, it's probably even more valuable
as a small improvement can make the difference between annoying and usable. For one of our customers,
we were able to increase their speed from 0.6Mbs to over 1.0Mbs. This makes iPlayer usable, so the customer
was very pleased. Also, a slow speed can mean intermittent connection, which we can also solve.
We can't to the impossible, but it's amazing what we can do!
