Same problem here in England. It's been affecting us for about 4-6 weeks where we keep losing connectivity altogether a fair few times a day. The
weird thing is, the lights on my modem are meant to flash certain sequences to indicate what the problem is but when I check it, it all looks fine.
Only way I can get it to work is to reboot the modem. I'm also finding it difficult to watch videos, bbc iplayer takes forever to load and same with
Has anyone else had problems with their mobile/cell phones too? Same thing happens with that, I lose signal completely for a few minutes at a time, a
couple of times a day. I live in a well populated area and never ever encountered a loss of signal here until recently.
Edit: Just read back on the posts about phones! Is all very odd. Also, when I've attempted to call my Mum on a few occasions it says "we are
unable to connect your call at this time", and so I ring the home phone and she can't see why it said that (she had full signal) and noone else has
encountered that problem when calling her. Same thing happened when trying to call a friend the other day too.
I too will worry if we ever completely lose the internet and calls. With no way of contacting other people in the world, it'll be so much easier for
TPTB to pull the wool over the publics eyes. If we only have the media to go by for news, we are royally screwed.
The comment someone has made about that ship has made me start to wonder, I'll have to go look into that abit more now. If they are sending three
ships off with nukes to ports around the world then I can kiss my arse goodbye because I livein the town of the largest container port in the UK and
one of the largest in Europe.
