BBC News: Hotel's shock at 80,000 superfast broadband quote by MB[_2_]
On the BBC News website, the hotel seems to want BT or other broadband users to subsidise his hotel. I don't see any mention of other broadband suppliers rushing to connect them for a lower price, it is always BT that gets blamed. Perhaps Mr. 7 can connect them via fibre.

Upgrade to plusnet fibre - router question by chris
I've been offered an interesting deal to move to fibre from ADSL - essentially it's cheaper than I'm paying now. I currently have a TP-link archer router, which I'd like to keep. I realise the router part is incompatible with VDSL, but can I piggyback the TP-link onto the plusnet VDSL router and keep using it?

Maximum upload and download speeds on FTTC by Chris Green
We are in the happy position of being fairly close to a new FTTC cabinet even though we're out in the wilds of rural suffolk. Currently I'm on the 'standard' PlusNet fibre deal which gives me 40Mb/s download and (recently upraded by PlusNet, for free) 10Mb/s upload. My router confirms we really get these connection speeds and says the 'maximum' possible is a *lot* better:-

Possible Plusnet congestion problem - one for Bob Pullen? by Graham J[_2_]
My neighbour has a Plusnet connection, with a static IP address. Since exactly midday yesterday (23/11/17) ping responses from his public IP have been intermittently poor - I see maybe 20 good replies then several seconds with one or two replies missing. I use F8Lure to monitor the reliability of his connection. It shows failures rather like the example...

Strange BT broadband pricing by Andrew[_2_]
My latest BT bill shows broadband and line rental charged at 35.99 after many years of separate line rental and bband charges and various discount, all of which have now vanished. They have been nagging me with free infinity activation for ages so out of interest I had a look at what their so-called offers are :- cost type speed limit cloud 35.99 (now) adsl2+ ...

Are fibre connections any more reliable? by Clive Page
we've been with Plusnet for several years and until recently the service has been quite good. But in the last fortnight we've had 24 hours with a download speed of about a tenth of the usual, and since then numerous outages lasting a minute or two. My attempt to get through to Plusnet via their Chat system crashed out after I had been in a queue for over 30 minutes. I've now submitted a...

Ofcom plans instant payback for broadband woes by Java Jive
"Customers would be entitled to automatic compensation, without having to go through a potentially lengthy and difficult claims process," the regulator said. They would receive either a cash payment or a credit on their bill, with the level of payments set by Ofcom. The proposed scale of charges would be: 10 for each calendar day that the service is not repaired

FTTP: New Build Home by Mark Carver
Went with my lad today to look at a new build flat for him. To my amazement it had a BT FTTP install, complete with powered up terminal equipment. So, if he buys the place, and moves in, what are his options ? From Googling it seems that only a handful of ISPs offer a service. He'll want unlimited usage, but I assume a 330 meg service will have a

Draytek Vigor 2820n WiFi failure, fixed by reboot by Chris Green
I have a venerable Draytek Vigor 2820n which is now serving simply as a WiFi router at the far end of my house to provide coverage there. It has a wired connection to my main (FTTC) Tp-Link router. It suffers from its WiFi failing after running OK for a day or two. The symptoms are that it *appears* to work still, i.e. the SSID is broadcast and one can connect successfully to the WiFi but...

Any ISPs offering 18x2 FTTC ? by Andrew Benham
The BT Broadband Availability Checker shows that "WBC FTTC 18x2" is available on my line. Since my downstream sync speed is only 20 Mbps at the moment, 18x2 might be a better option than the 40x10 I'm signed up for currently. But are any ISPs offering 18x2 ? Can't see any mention on the usual suspects' web sites.

Sky internet connection question by Graham J[_2_]
A friend has a Sky TV system. There is a main receiver and several slave boxes. I cannot at the moment tell you the model numbers or other details. All are connected to WiFi Access Points and hence via his router to the internet. His house is fairly large and several access points are required to get good coverage. He does have Cat5 Ethernet cable installed at every location where the...
