I have had a funny few days with no Internet or home phone. I called  sky and they said they thought the connection was faulty and would send someone out. I thought it might be at least a day or two, I was surprised to see the open reach van outside within and hour. He had already been to the junction box and said he needed to test my place, He then went back to the box and was gone a little while, When he came back he said that someone had cut a wire, I asked how it could be and he said that other contractors use the box and he said someone must have cut the wire. Its all sorted now BUT now mobile goes straight to voice mail and have no idea why so its off to the shop  yesterday.
