After carefully considering the subject – and being without internet at home for a little over two months – GAAAAH! – I finally took the plunge and signed up for wireless broadband (which is what I’m using now). After a few hiccups, even a massive cold (well, all colds feel massive) couldn’t stop the installation. The speed is reasonable (the salesman promised speeds between 2-5 Mps even if advertisements say “up to 7 Mps) The next problem will be to get the wireless wireless (?!?) router to work.
I decided to drop the landline phone and I still haven’t done anything about cable-tv. Reception on a digital indoor areal is a bit shaky in central Odense but it does work and I’m not really sure that I’m missing out on anything.
(I should perhaps note that the set-top box is an MPEG2 so if I stay on DTT, I’ll need a new one in 2012 at the latest. On the other hand, the thing only cost 200 DKK).
But now I have a new problem: I can’t use “I need to check my e-mails” as an excuse to go to my office. Hmmm…
