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.

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

After sales support, or lack of it! Bought a new IKEA induction hob from IKEA.FR last week, installed it same day and only half of the rings work, now having a lot of trouble to get this resolved. Sent two emails via their website on the same day with no response whatsoever, asked my French friend to help. Latest message from their helpline is to take it back to my nearest shop, which is about 3 hours away, (that is why I ordered it online for delivery).

Hi. I will be repointing one of my house wall in a few weeks. In some places there is a gap (around 3 inches) between top of the wall and the roof timbers ... which I'd like to close to make the house more weather proof (and rodent proof). Was thinking of using some expanding foam to fill gap ... then finishing off with pointing material (sand & lime mix). Does this sound OK? Also should I insert some vents for ventilation? Thanks.

Good Morning, I have a Fosse requiring emptying. I live not to far from Ruffec 16. The house has not been lived in for quite a few years so would be helpful if it could be inspected as well. Any recommendations would be great.
