House Hunting, Rural Style

Me: there’s a house for sale in [village x] that might be worth a look

OH: [village x]? Isn’t that where our exchange* is?

Me: Yes. It looks quite good it’s got –

OH: Buy it.

Can you tell we’ve been having problems with our broadband recently?

*For those not familiar with rural life, when you tell anyone who knows anything about broadband that you live five miles from the exchange, normally all you get is a sorrowing yet sympathetic look and a pat on the shoulder. Still, our views are nice.

    We are geographcally right in the gap between two exchanges, which is odd as we are in a (sub)urban village on the edge of Stuttgart.
