General Issues / Re: Shop changes in the village

Update on the above. The move of the post office to share premises with the dry cleaners is, apparently 80% finalised, according to a spokesperson for the dry cleaners. The two concerns will continue to operate in the one location. They are hoping for an October move.

Technology / Re: Village broadband and high-speed optic fibre

i guess the market will decide regarding costing and fair usage of unlimited data contracts. Three mobile already offer them-hopefully others will follow.
It would also  seem some of the masts in BP are already LTE A cat 6 and i am getting 130/20 in some locations on EE using the app open signal (other are available). ironically the speeds cover the FTTP area of BP mainly which is annoying. Heres hoping all masts are upgraded soon.Onwards!!

I doubt all you can eat contracts will be available on 4G for anything like the cost of fixed line DSL

I'd suspect trying to use a 4G connection to share for your home network would be against any fair-use clause as well

Interesting to read of the phone company EE cat 9 service being rolled out nationwide. Theoretical speeds of 360mbps over the air when it arrives. Good news for those of us forgotten about in the recent FTTP upgrade of Brookmans Park. With the start by three mobile of all you can eat data contracts maybe over the air provision is the future? Working from home with the need to do large file downloads of 10gb plus, this is great news. BP

I have seen black rabbits in the vicinity of Bradmore Lane for 30 years and I spoke recently with a 92 year old resident of Welham Green who recollected seeing them as a boy!!

Thanks for the reply. We actually called the RSPCA for advice and they were quite adamant it wasn't wild from my description and advised we try to catch it. We did and now it's in a hutch munching apples but I'm starting to think that maybe they are wrong.  I hate to think we have captured a wild rabbit.

There have been wild melanistic rabbits around the village for some years. I used to see them quite often on the railway embankment.

I am thinking of going the route of Sky "Q" box. Has anyone any experience or comments about its reliability or quality?

General Issues / Black young rabbit - pet or wild
« Last post by Colin_H on August 19, 2017, 11:52:30 am »
Hi,

A young black rabbit was sitting munching on fallen apples in my garden today.

It didn't seem that nervous when approached.

Is there a way to identify if it's a pet or wild?

Thanks
