If there’s one thing I hate, it’s people bragging about their broadband speed on Twitter, because mine has always been laughable. Until now.
The UK’s phone company (BT) have taken it upon themselves to finally install fibre optic cabling in the booming metropolis of Thirsk, which means I can now connect to an FTP server in the USA without the Internet crashing to a halt.
What does my broadband connection mean for clients?
Well, if you’ve worked with me before, you’ll know that I prefer to host your client sites on one of my development servers. This is lovely for me, but I know a lot of you would prefer to have your client sites on your own hosting server (or better yet, on the client’s server).
Thankfully, all this new shiny cabling means you can now host your site anywhere you want and I can work on it without wasting half a day waiting for an image to upload. Everyone’s a winner.
