Welcome to IT Support Line Limited
IT Support Line Limited provides IT support services for home users and small businesses in Newport Pagnell and the surrounding area.
IT Support Line Limited is now in its 7th year of supporting Microsoft Windows systems including Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and 8. Our services include providing advice, training, problem solving, upgrades, installation of wireless networks, rebuilds, virus removal and performance improvement.
Windows 8 is the latest operating system from Microsoft which became available from October 2012. For most users there will be a need to relearn how they use their next computer as the Start Button/Menu has been replaced with a Start Screen/Tiles.
The Start Button/Menu first came into existance in 1995 when Windows 95 superceeded Windows 3.11 and has migrated from Windows 95 through to Windows 7.
Steven Sinofsky from Microsoft wrote a blog explaining why Microsoft has replaced the Start Button/Menu with a Start Screen/Tiles.
But don't panic - there are a number of free and chargable software options that can create a Start Button/Menu view similar to how it used to work as reviewed by ExtremeTech.
Fibre broadband (FTTC) has been available in Newport Pagnell and some parts of Sherington since October 2010.
Many parts of Milton Keynes now have Fibre Broadband but not in all areas - See this local map of BT Openreach exchanges.
In North Crawley, Chicheley and Astwood which all shares the same telephone exchange in North Crawley as well as Hanslope & Stoke Goldington, fibre broadband has not been installed and should be available to all, especially in Astwood as standard broadband speeds are under 2 Mbps.
IT Support Line Limited advises all residents and businesses in Astwood, Castlethorpe, Chicheley, Gayhurst, Hanslope, North Crawley, Stoke Goldington and Tathall End to register their interest in upgrading to Fibre broadband by using this BT Openreach website link:
When enough responses are collected, BT Openreach should set a date to upgrade the exchange. The local parish councils could also bring pressure to the local, regional and national Government too.
