How to tell if you need fast Internet by 7[_2_]
How to tell if you need fast Internet ------------------------------------- Internet is now the back bone of Industry. Without Internet most companies would stand to loose substantial amounts of income from the outage. If the Internet is replaced with slow Internet, the frustration and loss of productivity become unimaginable and incalculable. So lets now assume your Internet speed is restored.

Gigabit fibre - people won't buy it - a lesson for 7 by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
https://www.thinkbroadband.com/news/8110-uk-could-be-number-1-in-broadband-league-tables-rather-than-35th Quite a long article showing the methodology was badly flawed and that people are quite happy with 40/10 ADSL and won't pay a premium to go faster. So Hyperoptic, already a money pit, looks set never to find the customers it needs to break even in its cherry picked areas... 7 had better...

Windows 10 won't connect to WiFi on my Draytek router - why? by Chris Green
I have a (mostly Linux) home network with a Draytek 2860n connecting to the internet using VDSL. It all works well and much as expected. Mostly visitors using MS Windows and Android seem to connect to my WiFi OK too. However it would seem that Windows 10 (and possibly some iPhones) are failing to connect and I really can't see why. I have a Windows 10 partition on my (normally Linux) laptop...

Late in the day by DrTeeth
Hi, The main reason I have stayed with BT is so that I would be able to change my ISP on my FTTC connection without any hiccups. Is this necessary these days? I have had enough of BT and would like to move both my landlines from them. Other than my broadband issue above, can any of you recommend a good landline operator with customer service in the UK?

London touts Investors to go elsewhere to invest in Digital by 7[_2_]
London touts Investors to go elsewhere to invest in Digital ----------------------------------------------------------- There is no symmetric gigabit Internet in London so investing in London is not an option to Internet entrepreneurs. They all go to France - its simple, just arrive, use Internet to find some good companies and invest. Its all free Internet in most places across the globe now.

ADSL 2+ upgrade at 3.5km 47dB attn by Martin Brown[_2_]
Our rural exchange has upgraded from ADSL Max to full ADSL 2+ this weekend. The wires are still the same old ancient copper. I already got 5M/0.448M and had looked at the graphs for my range and line attenuation so I wasn't expecting much improvement maybe 10%. I now get 5.94M/1.0M with SNR 6.0 and 6.7 respectively = +20%, +110%.

Wireless router with guest wifi networks by Pete Zahut[_2_]
I currently have an Asus router that has four separate wifi networks for guest use. Each network can have its own SSID, password, and is completely isolated from all other networks whether wired or wifi. It's on its last legs and I need a replacement but having guest wifi access is a must, preferably four as I have now but I could do with three at a push. Any recommendations?

So no need for cabinets from local exchange. Do you seriously think that if fibre replaced copper that they would be installing fibre exchange lines for every consumer?

Forcing Torrent files to download by Pete Zahut[_2_]

City of London to save billions by switching from BT to pure fiber providers ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- The problem with BT (British Telecum) is that it is shiite for symmetric gigabit fiber installation. They don't know how to make it and sell it despite owning 1 million 10gbit symmetric links paying 150/m whilst charging the City 25,000 to...

Poor BT Suport re email failures by Terry Pinnell[_2_]
Have other BT customers been experiencing inexplicable failure of incoming and outgoing email? Mine was unavailable all day yesterday, with messages like this from my email program: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h8ctnu0daev5k4u/EmailFailureAgain.jpg?dl=0 I assumed (and still do) that it was due to the very large incidence of outages across the UK. (My wife seems to be suffering on TalkTalk, BTW; is...

IP panic alarm system for the elderly by Graham J[_2_]
Please see my post in uk.telecom.voip The issue is that a Tunstall Lifeline V product does not work with a VoIP system from Voipfone. The problem at present appears to be that when the alarm is tested tones sent from the call monitoring centre are not recognised by the Tunstall device, so after several seconds the call is terminated. I have yet to talk to Voipfone, but the "technical"...

ROT - Multi-Input VoIP Autodialler, Where To Buy in UK? by Java Jive
As per title, I have a legacy client with three alarm systems, two fire and one intruder, and, now that I have set up a VoIP BT Cloud Phone system for him, he wishes to reduce the number of expensive phone lines coming into his premises. I live some way away from the site, but I know that at least one, perhaps two, of these lines are connected to fire and intruder alarm panels, via...

Houses conneced to some cabinets cannot get FTTC even though exchange and other cabinets can by NY
We're looking to buy a new (*) house. I notice that houses in some streets of the town centre cannot get FTTC, only ADSL, whereas others on the same exchange can do. It seems to be on a cabinet by cabinet basis. When I look at the BT line-speed site, the status is something like "BT is investigating ways of offering high-speed fibre speeds". That "investigating" bewilders me: surely it's...

Ping Bob Pullen? WTF is the email address for Plusnet sales?? by Vir Campestris
I've just had a sales email - I left Plusnet a year ago. And I am thinking about changing. The thing is I left because FTTP wasn't an option, except as a trial. And I can't see anything on the website that would (a) let me know what the position is now or (b) would have an email address so I could ask. They say you can do it via online chat. Which is not available... The web site packages...
