Datastorm finally?

After many minor setbacks I have the final date for the Datastorm to be fitted, 9th December. It’s a lot of money but the thing is I have had none stop problems with Vodafone. I upgrade to the latest dongle, I keep my laptop in tiptop shape but, it constantly fails me and their customer service constantly makes mistakes. I was cut off not long ago because for some unknown reason they decided to apply a limit to my account. I rang and some person said it was a mistake and sorry I’ll take it off. Then later they blocked my access to the works website because it has links to gambling! Duh…it’s a bingo company! LOL

The connection is good usually but the constant problems mean it’s just too unreliable. The satellite system is £8,000 but not only do reviews say it’s reliable but the freedom it affords is fantastic as I can connect at broadband speeds anywhere in Europe! I can’t wait!

Datastorm Freedom!

Well this is exciting. I’ve been using the Vodafone PCMCIA card that allows me to connect to the internet via the mobile phone network. It’s the new style card so I had to buy an adapter which cost £164! Vodafone are full of woes, their customer service is friendly but woefully useless. The service is very patchy, I hope it improves. However I’ve booked the van to get satellite internet fitted in November by a company in Stoke called Isatlan.

£8,000, yeah ridiculous money but you know, you only get one life, you have to make the most of it, so it’s about time I started living.

Exciting times, can’t wait!
