OT - 3G

Been in Liverpool docks all evening struggling with a shitty GPRS
connection. Now 1 hour into the Irish Sea and I've suddenly got 3G!!!

And it's still crap...

ooer.

meanwhile, our landline is dead as a dodo, yet the broadband still works?

I thought it were all down the one wire. Mind, it's doing quite a lot of
restarting, so I suspect there's something not quite right there.

The phone side needs a DC path to work, the broadband is carried at
much higher frequencies and can "jump" small breaks in the cable that
stop the DC required for the phone.

150 is residential faults. Probably take 'em a week...
