[ubuntu-uk] Slow d/loads

If your provider is saying you have a line fault (something I seem to
recall is pretty rare to get out of them without accusing them of
lying), then wait for the engineer to come out and fix it. A line
fault exists between the master socket and exchange in the case of a
BT based service, or between the cable modem and the core in the case
of a Virgin Media based service.

Of course, if you can borrow a router from a neighbour, and use that
to test it, you'll have a better idea whether "line fault" is the new
"Have you tried turning it off and on again?"
