    Fibre Optic Broadband

    Hi there,I am wanting to know how many of you receive fibre optic broadband such as BT Infinity? I currently don't. But, I will be receiving it by December this year. Do you enjoy fibre optic broadband? What speeds do you get? If you have BT Infinity then I was curious of how much you would rate the service/speed and what speed you get?I will be interested to know your thoughts.William
  2. Thunderstorm to the NE of here now! Exciting times!
  3. Haha, I love the stuff, not just because there's instability in the air, but I love the shape of them. Very lightly raining here, but feeling quite humid and it's quite dull and hazy, certainly feels thundery.
  4. @ajpoolshark, we have some stunning Altocumulus Castellanus clouds here!
  5. Oh, now I see what you mean. I keep thinking what's coming in today isn't an actual low.
  6. Sorry? No, it sounded like as if Jcweather was saying that the LOW was going to be to the south of the UK, but that's incorrect it's going to affect western areas of the UK.
  7. To the south? No, that's incorrect. It'll be too the north if anything. Anyway, more showers developing now out west.
  8. Berries coming out already!

    Met Office loses BBC contract

    Not at all surprised, if it wasn't going to be Netweather then I thought it was going to be MeteoGroup.
  10. @Summer Sun, finally something eventful! RIP trees! Just noticed a torrential downpour has erupted near Plymouth!
  11. Yeah, if the Met Office is correct, then the Isles of Scilly and Cornwall could well get thunderstorms later on. Interesting that it puts a downpour slap bang over the top of me, too.
  12. I agree with @Chris K. Doesn't look too good, but we shall have to see what happens.
  13. Really? Well, unfortunately there wouldn't have been a lightning strike anyway, there was no precipitation in the area.
  14. Sorry, but where were you seeing this? There wasn't a detected lightning strike or shower?
  15. Very unstable looking skies in the Isles of Scilly! There are developing elevated showers which may turn to thunderstorms through this evening!

    Never say never!
  17. I have just read Matt Hugo's forecast for today and it says this: "However, parts of Ireland, Wales and SW England will see an increasing risk of some locally heavy and perhaps thundery showers later today and overnight into Wednesday", I can't see that anywhere else? Altocumulus Castellanus cloud visible on this webcam: But, yeah if I'm being perfectly honest, most thunder risk will be the further west you are not east like some posters have said, most of the instability is tied up at mid level within the front not at surface based ahead of the front.
  18. Still think we'll get some thundery rain and/or thunderstorms through tomorrow night into Thursday as the warm front moves in from the SW. Can already see instability building west of the Isles of Scilly.
  19. Well, we're coming to the end of the best Summer for 10 years!

      Better for warm fans.  Worse for cold fans.:D

  20. More thunder potential on it's way on Wednesday Night. Must not get excited...

  21. @legritter, slightly off topic, but there's something wrong with your keyboard.
  22. This year's flying by! Nearly Autumn now! :O

  23. Met Office and GFS still agreeing on a thundery breakdown later on Wednesday.

    The changing daylight hours thread

    Really starting to notice the nights drawing in now, the other night I was on the PC and hadn't looked outside for a while, I was shocked when it was pitch black outside!
