    How fast is the LTT member's internet connection?

    1. I know. NTE installs the fibre optic cables. 2. NTE is owned by the county(Nord-Trøndelag). They didn't come, they were already there. Therefore it was a local initiative when they expanded their business to include installing fibre and be a partner of Altibox. 3. No, only 50 million NOK is allocated in the state budget in 2015. Anymore money are in that case added by local governments. 4. No, Altibox is not available in all the counties. No, your comment made no sense. You gave the impression that our government are promoting high speed connections and being progressive in that regard. But that is not the case. The money that are allocated are not much, and they have been saying for years that they want the private market to take care of it. Their earning may not have been much 10 years ago, when they started up with FTTH, but now they are making good profits. They need only a little more than 50% penetration in one area to make a profit. Most of the fibre networks in Norway have 60% or more, so they are very profitable. The problem is that due to lack of initiative in our government, it's been up to private companies to install fibre and they are not gonna share those cables with anyone else, it's long term investments. So we will not have a situation similar to the phone networks(copper cables), where there can be competition. If you are lucky to live in an area that have fibre optic cables, you have, in 99% of the time, only one ISP to choose from. In other words, just like the cable-TV companies. If the government really promoted and allocated enough money to create a nationwide fibre optic network, this wouldn't be a problem and it would have benefited us, the consumers. The amount of money from the government is pathetic and it only makes it easier for the ISP to create monopolies. If you have access to a fibre connection, but you think it's too expensive, you are shit out of luck. You have to pay whatever they want, you have nowhere else to go. You can always choose a shitty ADSL connection though or one of the cable companies that forces you to buy their TV packages that you don't need :angry: But enough of this OT, I'm done.

    NTE(local power company and ISP) is owned by the Nord-Trøndelag county, but that is not the norm for the rest of the country. At least not for the southern parts of Norway, where most of us live. My point is that Norway is not a country where the state heavily promotes high speeds connections. The only reason sparsely populated areas sometimes have access to fibre, is due to a local initiative. The 50mill NOK is for the municipalities(kommunene). Sorry for the OT. Carry on please

    What are you talking about? The ISP's are not forced to do anything and they don't get any money, but local governments sometime help to fund projects. Our government will only allocate 50 million NOK(6,5 million USD) to the municipalities this year, for them to install fiber where there are no commercial interest. So basically, the support from the Norwegian state is almost non existent. The ISP's are installing fibre where it is profitable. 99% of the fibre that are installed these days, are done by commercial operators. The fibre coverage are pretty good(where people actually live, not godforsaken places), and it's getting better every year, but no thanks to the government. They have been pretty clear about wanting the commercial operators to do the work.

    I would also recommend to run Memtest86 to see if your RAM is faulty.

    It could be the RAM. Have you tried with only one RAM stick, switched them around to see if one of them could be faulty? Another thing you should do is update the bios. It would also be a good idea to reset the bios settings, in case the memory settings etc. could be the cause.

    Looking at "his" posts, it's pretty obvious it's a spambot. I have reported it, hopefully someone puts an end to the spamming
