Stuck without Broadband and I am looking towards Leigh

Steve's baby daughter made amazing progress this week, or so his wife thought

STEVE CANAVAN: It was a lot of rattle over just a little roll

Have your say

It’s amazing how we rely on modern technology.

My broadband has been down for a week or so now. How did I cope before broadband? Not able to check weather forecasts, newspaper websites and the latest shipping movements, I’ve felt unconnected with the world.

I’m now on first name terms with the broadband team and Sky.

And I will scream if I’m told to switch it off for 10 seconds one more time!

Turns out, there have been a few problems in the Portsmouth and Gosport area recently.

So intermittent has the service been, I’ve attached my router to my TV aerial, which is now facing Leigh Park in a vain attempt to capture some of their free Wi-Fi.
