The digital ramadan is over!

2 weekends   8 day's  no internet it was not easy.. a sort of digital ramadan.
 I am very depending to the internet that was made clear.
Finally today after 8 days the telephone over i-net rings.  Yes they managed to reconnect me.
I could not really understand the man's Dutch it sounded as he was calling from Bangladesh.
pheeww.  Something went wrong in "changing the cards"  in the switch box.  I am reconnected with ADSL  VDSL  could not make it.
The cable to the nearest ring-station is 4km.
I knew that already for over 5 days but yes this KPN is working like the government.
KPN stands for Koninklijke PTT Nederland.   Royal Post Telephone Telegraph Netherland.
Only thing left is the royalties they take. And the speed of internet is close to the telegraph. 

Next time I will think twice  before requesting a simple speed change..
Speed test showed about 1MB download  800kb/s  and 80kB upload. Not figures that impress but to me everything more than 0 B/s  feels fast…
