Be Broadband

February 27, 2008

So I’m moving to Be and hoping that my new service will have the download speed to get You Tube videos quickly, and the upload speed to support my websites. Running a home server is a little bit daunting, because of security and access issues. Really need to have a careful think about what should be available.

One geeky thing about Be is that because its so fast (potentially), there is quite alot of benefit from tweaking your connection. So I’m learning about BT sockets, and extensions. Another thing to consider is router placement. I’ll have to see whether a lower central placement in the house can still cover the back garden, and whether coverage at the front will be better. Finally having two routers (Be Box) and old router offers scope for comparison.
