So I moved home recently and what I didn’t realise, and what was also a very pleasant surprise, was that the new home has a fiber optic link (or fttp if you want the nice acronym!). So now via a not so great gigabit link via my ISP’s cheap and rather crappy supplied modem. It’s not rocket ship fast but should hopefully be a lot better than the old ADSL2 link that the poor thing limped along on. Fingers crossed that this should work faster and we should have longer uptimes!
