This is a service that Orange provides (for a price!)  to homes where internet download speeds are very poor.It uses a 'Fly Box' rather than a Livebox and works off the 4G network. It claims pretty high download speeds (usually 25-30Mb/sec) and you can download up to 200Gb of data per month i.e. watching films, listening to music, surfing etc.Does anyone use this system? Is the 200Gb allowance adequate? And have you found it to be a good service and good value?Thanks for any feedback.

For some time, we've had a slow broadband internet speed so we contacted the English Speaking Service of Orange and they told us that we had  'Dynamic Line Management'  filter on our line.  The man explained that this is a system whereby it slows the speed but keeps the connection on an unstable line.  He confirmed that our line was in good order and took the filter off and hey presto, we got really good speeds, in fact it was 3 times faster than we've ever had before.   However, the speed is going down each day and is getting slower and slower.  On checking the internet regarding DLM is appears that it is an automatic system and 'rights' itself when the line is more stable.   Has anyone had any experience of this or can offer any useful help and advice before I contact Orange again. Many thanks.

Hello,I have had a Chappee NXR 1 boiler for just over a year and was working fine until we started running low on fuel, since topping it up we managed to get it up to temperature and it seemed to be working but a couple of hours later it had shut itself off and has lost all its heat. Does anyone have a user manual that they are able to send me a copy of?TIAChloe

We have a fosse septique that doesn't conform to current standards and which we hope to have replaced shortly. In the meantime though we have a problem with it. it seems as though the water isn't draining off like it should, and the tank fills every few weeks. If possible we'd like the current problem diagnosed and cleared as we're uncertain about when the new one will be installed. There is no end of people who design, build, fit install and generally give advice on, but we haven't managed to find anyone who can sort them out when things go wrong. Does anyone know of a company that does this? We live a few kilometres from St. Jean d'Angely (17) and any advice would be very welcome.

Can anyone recommend one of these things please. Don't really like using chemicals, although I have done in the past. We have about 80/100 sq metres that we need to keep clear. The ones we've seen on online shops, have tiny 8cm gas canisters, which we'd use up in no time.Thanks in advance
