Have a Very MERRY CHRISTMAS 2012 from ISPreview.co.uk

merry christmas red ribbon

ISPreview.co.uk would like to wish all of our readers a very happy holiday season and a Merry Christmas! As usual we’re going to take a couple of days break to visit family, wear silly hats and eat far too much but the site will still be here and maintained accordingly.

It’s fair to say that 2012 has seen a lot of change on our site, from introducing a new Content Management System (CMS) to developing a new style and upgrading the ISP listings system. On top of that we’ve had to cope with various technical nightmares, server upgrades and keep up to speed with the latest industry developments; of which there have been a ton!

But Christmas is a time to forget all about that, at least for a few days, and to spend time enjoying the company of those whom we hold most dear. On the other hand it just wouldn’t be ISPreview.co.uk if we didn’t mention what the seasonal break means for internet provision.

In particular readers should take note that broadband ISPs can be affected by seasonal staff shortages, which often means that new service installations or repair work may take longer and customer support at smaller providers can also be less effective (note: some ISPs completely close their support lines for Christmas day).

Stormy weather and snow are also known to disrupt broadband performance on traditional ADSL2+ lines, as can those twinkling lights that are usually found hanging around Christmas Trees (assuming you haven’t upgraded to LED or Fibre Optic lights); they’re sometimes known to produce electrical interference that can disrupt broadband lines (i.e. keep them away from your router).

Otherwise.. see you all again in a couple of days.

PS – I know it’s old but we still get a kick out of this video every single year 🙂 .
