Recommended Posts

If you're living in the Belmont area and are wondering what the huge crane is being used for this morning, it is for the new installation of a 16 metre phase 8 pole with wrap around cabinet built around the base with new equipment cabinets and ancillary development for EE and HG3 on the land adjacent to Tesco Belmont.

I saw this going up when I went on my one trip of the week!

Somebody please tell me it is sheer coincidence that since then I have had terrible trouble with my television signals - the only thing I can watch is Amazon and even that gets some interference.  I know that 4G does cause signal problems but I am Kingstone and that is Belmont

Sad old git that I am but I love my television!!!!!!!!!!

Well I am not can only watch Amazon at the moment and that even gets a bit dodgy sometimes! I think it could be a BT problem on the west of Hereford so many of my neighbours have sky so they do not have the same problem - oh well there are worse things happening in the world that's for sure!!

Following on from the television saga some time ago I spoke to my internet provider Plusnet and after much discussion the very pleasant man said I needed  an ethernet cable because I was reaching the speed I was paying for which is top wack.

Anyway bought cable and fixed said same and streaming was ok for about 75% of the time until of course last Monday which apart from Amazon was a total no no.

After much checking on the internet it was suggested that a USB Powered Compact Signal Booster 4G might do the trick. I bought a SLX from Amazon for just over £13.00 and I am very pleased to say that it seems to do the trick.

Hope this bit of info assists somebody else in a similar predicament.   Wised up guys and gals might know all about these little devices but I did not so can only assume not everybody does.

I was going to say we never had this problem with our black and white tv but we did because on very windy blustery days somebody would have to go out and fiddle around with the aerial and keep coming back in to see if it was better!

It is not even connected yet, I was talking with one of the engineers earlier, they are still connecting cables, not live until all complete.
