But when it comes to getting these pictures out there, this degree of slowness
as images travel along several kilometres of old copper line, re-knitted following digger mishaps, can be frustrating.
Fortunately we are a beneficiary of this:
We have watched for the last two years as fibre has creeped up the valley and six months ago seemed to be able to ask to be connected.
We have had three visits from surveyors and two aborted pole planting missions.
We now think we have a solution.
We are putting up our own poles
Rigging our own lines
Cutting back the trees
and hoping for the best,
