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

Arduino SMTP2GO and BT by Peter Andrews[_2_]
I'm using an Arduino to monitor an alarm and sending an email using SMTP2GO when an alarm occurs. All works perfectly when connected to VM (cable) broadband but fails to connect when using a BT broadband connection and I've tried two! Any ideas?

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...

BT's DNS servers by Bob Henson
I use BT Infinity 1 and I've been having problems with time-outs for some weeks now. The connection speed is high and there are no drop-outs as such when you finally get past the time-outs. I'm connected to the router by ethernet cable. Test changes of (Windows 7) email clients and browsers made no improvement, so I came to the conclusion it was BT's DNS servers. I finally decided to change the...

BT Yahoo - hopeless authentification by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Roughly every month BT Yahoo! decides that my password needs changing. Usually if I happen to access my email while out and about and not from my own BT broadband connection. This is nuisance as I have to update the settings on my PC, tablet and phone. Last night I had to change it four times in fifteen minutes. What a PITA. When are BT finally going to get a decree absolute from Yahoo! and...
