The Bump!

It already happened. A day early! Hard to believe this is supposed to be South Africa, where time goes slower than anywhere else. But it’s true. Rocketnet was busybusy and bumped our connection from 20/20 up to 50/50. Look:

Netflix speedtest

We had this speed already at the beginning of the locky downy, when the ISP offered it to tease us. But we were too cheap to keep it when they slowed us down to 20/20 again. We kinda knew in the long run prices would go down and speed go up.

Rocketnet themselves are using the same Joomla speedtest like everybody else

And we were right! ๐Ÿ™‚ The fibre bigwigs are in a price war right now, so everybody tries to outprice the competition. They bumped us to permanently 50/50 without bumping up the prices!

You may now call me Lady Bump …

Okay, it’s sad but even in the age of disco we had dark times with really really bad music and really really bad singers. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But now you have to excuse me for a bit, I gotta quickly make a backup of the whole internet! Can’t take much longer than 3 minutes or so. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Worst part is, she’s German. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ And even worserer – this was a huge hit all over Europe I guess. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Of course people made the best of it, and screamed their poor tortured hearts out whenever that song was playing somewhere.

      Bitch was in a girly band before she started her stellar solo career. LOL =^.^= Fortunately for all involved parties she didn’t need to sing so much:

      My preteen years, quite obviously, were not as magical as I falsely remember them today. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  1. Lucky!
    Yesterday I learned many employees have been getting a $50/mo stipend to cover internet while working remotely. I was not included in that. But I also am not part of the teams that will have to return to office 3 or more days a week (my team’s initial plan is 1 day/wk), so I’ll take it. With traffic back to normal, the 9 mile drive home will take almost an hour!
