mine won't last 6 months. I have to pan fry it and eat it with eggs, mushrooms and tomatos

You forgot the sausage and hashbrown!

Can freeze it longer than longer than 6 months. 1 - 2 years here

So long as it is vacuum packed

Depends whether sliced or whole, for the length of freezer time, the bigger the piece the longer the freeze.

Some can go salty after being frozen. So I don't add salt to anything Im using it in. And salt at the table once Ive tasted it

I like streaky bacon, and I get a big package and do this: line a baking sheet (one with sides) with foil. Lay out the strips of bacon next to each other but not touching. Place in a cold oven, and turn on to 200 degrees. Allow bacon to bake until done to your liking. Remove from oven, place cooked bacon strips on paper towels to absorb excess grease. Once cooled and dry, place strips on a sheet of waxed paper and roll up. Place the roll in a plastic bag and place in freezer. I don't know how long this will last - but not long in our house! To use bacon, take what you need from the pack, heat in microwave 10 seconds for each strip. It comes out nice and flat and evenly cooked without the mess of the frying pan. I put the greasy paper towels on the foil, roll the whole thing up and toss in the rubbish. Simple clean up!

I freeze streaky bacon by rolling the rashers up, then standing the rolls upright in a container. Works best when the container is full, holds them in place, so I use very small ones which hold enough for one use.

You will never know :-)

No more than a couple of weeks.

Tried for longer, but it just keeps getting all cooked and eaten.
