So it's now been 2 months and still counting that boyf and I have been waiting for Sky to pull their fingers out of their arses (pardon the phrase) and sort us out with some much needed internet. I shouldn't complain, I have been leant a dongle which, albeit it painfully slow and limited, is an absolute godsend. I also have mobile internet but it makes it difficult to view blogs and can also be slow at times.
We were assured out router would arrive and a switch would be flicked by 17th February. This, as we suspected, did not happen and now we are being told this will not happen until 1st March. So there, I hate Sky and will not be recommending them to anyone in a hurry. The service is p*ss poor and we are in a long list of unhappy customers. I had to laugh when boyf asked the customer service advisor (if that's what they can call themselves):
Boyf: 'Does this sort of thing happen all the time or is it just us getting treated like this?'
CSA: 'Oh no Sir it happens all the time'
So that makes it all OK then!
