Internet Passwords

CAPITALS are not accepted. I do not know your passwords so if you forget (or are confused) you will need to ring your ISP and have it reset.

Internet ADSL

Broadband Internet connections are installed at most of our sites and at home offices. Please contact us to provide the options available. A copper phone line (not fibre) is used to connect to an exchange with ADSL. This line can be used for voice at the same time. A maximum distance of 3 km is suggested.
