Happy Christmas 2016 from ISPreview.co.uk

Saturday, December 24th, 2016 (1:04 am) - Score 572

Lying to children about the existence of a mythical home invader, the “occasional” alcoholic tipple, shopping queues, Brussels Sprouts that aren’t actually from Brussels, annoyingly repetitive songs and at some point an old lady on the TV will lecture you about family values (intersected with pictures of Corgis).. it can only be Christmas!

This year Christmas is a bit of an oddball and falls on a Sunday, which means it’ll be followed by a couple of bank holidays on Monday and Tuesday. As usual we’ll be taking it easy for the next few days and will be back into full swing on Wednesday, but of course if anything important pops up before that then we will try to cover it, albeit from behind glazed eyes.

But before we go it’s important to include an obligatory reminder about keeping Christmas Tree Lights well away from your broadband router as some of them, particularly the older style ones, are known to cause interference that can impact your Internet connectivity; modern standards should make this less of a problem.

Similarly Christmas Day can often result in a lot of people going online to activate new devices or to share updates on social media, so don’t be surprise if the performance of your home connection falls ever so slightly on the big day. Internet providers can also be short staffed over the festive weekend (not unlike most businesses) and some smaller providers may even close their offices for a day or two, so keep that in mind if you need support.

Otherwise we’d just like to wish all of our visitors a Merry Christmas, whatever your faith or belief, and a Happy New Year for 2017. Now it’s time for a bit of classic Simon’s Cat..

    Merry Christmas all. I’m on a 3 day bender as I am 56 tomorrow as well, and life sucks lol

    I hope on the internet side 2017 is much better – but 2016 was a crap year so I hope that does not continue for me
