by Phil Wheat

As someone who has, for most of his adult life, lived in a flat, it’s hard to imagine what it’s like suffering from a poor wi-fi connection in a larger home. After all, the nearest I came to having a router in one room and my computer in another was living in a two-storey maisonette; […]
