OLD TV DISRUPTED ENTIRE VILLAGE’S INTERNET CONNECTION FOR 18 MONTHS
The television disrupted internet connections for the village when it was turned on every morning

TIL that for 18 months, a village in Wales was mystified as to why their broadband internet crashed at 7am every morning, until engineers “picked up a large burst of electrical interference” springing from one dude turning on his very old TV.

And they didn’t even buy him a new TV?

I’d have “traded” it with them or begun to turn it off and on several times a day.

But, then I am just grumpy old fart.
