1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

I received this in my email today, it is nice to see that people are thinking out of the the box or should that be 'in the box' anyone tried one yet?
It is a shame that it is only a 2G extender

I think, with little effort, you can find much faster extenders than that.

The minimum cost of delivery for Wickes is £7.95, so no saving then....................:rolleyes:

Split this from the broadband thread not required in that thread

FWIW, you can also get that unit from places like Amazon - £30 with free P&P if you are a Prime member.
