    Hey Marco,
    I will have time to post a little more tonight, both work and my son Conner's baseball is killing me but I wanted to get back to you.
    We have fiber 100/100 mbps $89.95 per month and a list of taxes and fees that would chock a horse.
    Our house is on fiber optic to the box outside and inside is wired with cat 5 and cat 7.
    Conner is 9 now and I am asst. coach for his Little League baseball team, He pitches, catches and plays short stop, He also just finished from being on a travel team.
    And he plays basketball in the off season as well as doing 3 baseball practices a week at Extra innings and 2 weeks of Baseball camp at Sierra Collage with infield coach Kyle.
    He has done a year at AAA level and next year I may let him advance to majors, he has always played up but I worry about him playing with kids so much older.
    And if he is a 9 year old on a team of 11 and 12 year olds he will have few opportunities to pitch or catch for at least the first season. He will earn his place in the line up fast because he is a clutch hitter,just 2 times struck out over the last 12 games! average 3 to 4 at bats per game. Only one home run but lots of triples and doubles.
    He is only one of 2 kids on the team who can swing wood, the are still using alloy. Our rule is alloy in the spring,wood in the fall. Wood is harder to hit,like blades vs. cavity backs in golf.
    Tonight there is no practice or game.

    Hey, Jeff, good to see the little lad doing so well, and with such an active interest in sport! I know that baseball's huge out there, so I hope he continues to apply himself and progress through the ranks!

    Noted on your fiber broadband... So is that $89.95 per month, just for your Internet, or is there a TV/sports package or telephone service included? Quite impressive speeds you're getting there, especially uploads! Wonder if its your cabling?

    Yes, just for internet.
    Our store is much faster , but also more expensive.
    Conner has his gameing computer at our store in the back. Even with our credit card system and sound system pulling on it and our employees phones linked up at times.
    It is nearly 2x faster than our house .
    There used to be a florist shop where we are now and they had FTD and of their services linked on a server.
    The fiber-optic that goes to our store is just crazy and so is the internal wiring in the walls. Our store bill is $250 a month just for Internet.

    Thanks Marco ,unfortunately were unable to get any virgin services in Milton Keynes , I think BT did some sort of deal back in the 70s. I have the BT Halo 900, 15 per month more than what we were paying.
    Now Im on a mission to reach the 900mbps .

    I'm pretty sure that Bucharest has the fastest internet speeds in Europe, currently.

    The customer service is the worst I have ever experienced, however.

    Ive been with BT broadband for around 20 years and not once had an issue , this upgrade went perfectly too , the new hub arrived within 24hrs and the following day the service was up and running, I hope to get around 700mbps once I upgrade my network card . My PS4 though will only handle 58mbps
