    Today is the 3rd April and Mind the Speed has still not released my fibre after my contract with them terminated on 31 Mar. My new ISP cannot connect my fibre before Mind the Speed releases it. Therefore it is a long weekend without Internet for us !

    Just for comparison, does anyone here know which free router is currently supplied by Vox Telecom in their FTTH packages ? I have heard that it is a MikroTik router.
