viable to use 4G instead of fixed line? by Tweed[_2_]
If you live in an area with poor DSL speeds, and no access to Virgin cable, and you have a decent 4G signal from Three it might now be viable to use them for your domestic broadband. It seems Ofcom have stopped them from preventing you from putting phone tariff sims in mifi type devices...

Half of UK homes could get faster broadband by Java Jive
"One in seven homes could be paying more than they need to for broadband and could get faster services for the same or less money, Ofcom has said. New research suggests that half of UK homes have not taken up faster services even though they are available. Ofcom has launched a campaign dubbed Boost Your Broadband to let people know about what options are available. It follows years of...

Mobile faster than wi-fi in many countries by Java Jive
Note the slovenly misdescription in the title and throughout the article, for 'WiFi' read 'landline'. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-46346172 "Speed tests in 80 countries revealed wi-fi was left lagging in 33 nations, according to wireless coverage mapping company OpenSignal. Mobile data should also get a further speed boost when 5G networks arrived, it said.

"Broadband customers to get automatic compensation" by Java Jive
"Many customers who experience fixed broadband or landline loss will soon automatically receive compensation. The 8-per-day deal follows a new agreement between Openreach and five of the UK's internet service providers. It will apply only when the fault takes longer than two days to fix. If an engineer does not arrive on schedule, or cancels within 24 hours, the compensation will be 25....

SOT - by Java Jive
"RBS customer lost thousands of pounds in scam .... This is how the fraud on Charlotte was carried out: Bank records show the fraudster initially calls the bank, posing as Charlotte, and asks for her account to be reset for security reasons. Staff follow the bank's usual security protocol and call Charlotte's landline number, unaware the call has been diverted to a mobile phone

ADSL over FTTP by Theo[_2_]
I'm trying to figure out what is available on a FTTP line. It's an almost-new-build property which currently has BT FTTP. Magsys Codelook says for the postcode: "FTTC Available from 11th January 2017, being expanded by March 2019, FTTP from 25th July 2016, FTTP on Demand." However the address doesn't show on some checkers and the phone number isn't recognised. Confusingly, around the corner...

WiFi conundrum - what's this MAC address from? by Chris Green
I have a Draytek 2860n as my main (VDSL) router and an old 2820n being used as a wireless access point to extend coverage as we have a large house. The 2820n has its WANs turned off and has a wired connection from its LAN side to the 2860n LAN. It's all running on the usual 192.168.1.x LAN subnet. I have the 2860n set to use channel 11 for WiFi and the 2820n is set to use channel 6 (there...

Extending FTTC from a master socket by Vir Campestris
Colleague of mine has just bought his first house. The master socket is in a stupid place - what's the best kind of cable to run from there to where his router will be? He'd like to keep the 80Mbps he gets from the cab across the road. (Cable fatness is not an issue. The first job was to strip a load of walls back to get rid of the asbestos-ridden plaster - done by pros in suits. Complete...

5G will let users ditch fixed-line home broadband, says Three by Java Jive
5G hyping getting into its stride ... "5G will let users ditch fixed-line home broadband, says Three" https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-46127712 Actually, out here in northern Scotland, 4G could already make my landline redundant if only there was a suitably priced plan that gave me unlimited or nearly so download limits, but AFAIAA there isn't.

Plusnet billing failures by Clive Page
Plusnet have changed their billing system and sent me two emails, first to say that this months bill would be delayed, and later to say that it was available. But the usual web links to billing simply don't work, bringing up all sorts of error messages. Don't they test new systems at all? Or maybe they have hired the same IT bunch as TSB? There are scores of postings on the forum...

Telecom wayleave cannot now be refused by land owners by 7[_2_]
Telecom wayleave cannot now be refused by land owners ----------------------------------------------------- The 1000 per sqft rip off charges by landlords also gone. You can only ask what you would reasonably do with that land. So if a telecom company is siting a box and its occupying a few sq ft, and its waste land, then you can expect to be paid 3.

Three DD Scam by CJB
For some years I used to use a small USB dongle from Three to access the Internet. I had a contract on a monthly basis for 5GB at 15 - that was OK for me. Then the damn device kept disconnecting. Payment was on DD. So last year I complained and got suckered into a Wifi device again USB connected. This was on a yearly contract for 17 for 20GB. Again payment was on DD. The previous DD was...
