Good you are back online @Mi-Amigo 

Last week we all had fun fun 😁 

Openreach were replacing a cable between boxes and ho ho they mixed up the little  wires connecting each house to their landline phones and broadband.  Well off we went all neighbours and houses in area  🙄 then on -  but not with your own line! Someone else's 😂 so off again 🙄  until the man who can had to call on each house to check line was correct, said there's a huge amount to check.. 😫

I bought some more mobile data to cope.

The trouble is have to start checking my own connections as didn't know openreach had caused a nightmare in the boxes. It is quicker to check now as it is automatic to check my connection told main line off by my Internet service provider..at least that is sorted good info know its not at my place.

Happiness 😊 all on .
