Like many of us we are in limbo in UK at present waiting to get back to France to carry on with our renovation of our house near Ladapeyre. I was last there early Oct last year, having spent eight weeks, the last four on my own, the wife having to return for work. We have decided as soon as we are able to return, will apply for French residency to enable us to catch up on the work we would have carried out if our plans had gone ahead over the last two months and as a long term plan to live in France.
As a consequence I am asking advice on the subject of Internet access. There is a phone line installed at the property but not live. On the downside, our one neighbour has internet via a phone line but it is relatively slow. An alternative is satellite obviously, any ideas/advice on cost/suppliers etc.
It is already in our area - passes less than a km. from us, but our place is considered too isolated and remote to justify running cable for just two properties.
Didn’t matter when we first came here because everyone was on dial-up and streaming video was a futuristic dream.
At one time it was proposed to put the whole country on main drainage. Wonder what became of that?
I never expected fibre in our hamlet. We got a letter - obviously a mass letter - at the weekend saying 2022 you’ll have fibre. I still can’t see them running fibre up our hill for 3-4 houses either - the letter implies every house - but like mains drainage… 4G has fixed our reception so its not that vital anyway.
