Proposed Sky speed upgrade by MissRiaElaine[_2_]
In October last year, we had a letter from Sky saying that our speed would be upgraded from its current 40 MB/s (ish) to an "average" of 63 MB/s. It was claimed this would take place sometime between December and "the Spring", whichever day of the year that might be. So far nothing has happened, has anyone else had this letter, and have your speed been increased yet..? If so how have you...

Differing speed testing results by Malcolm Loades[_2_]
I've always used speedtest.net and until a week or so ago my pings were always 7-9ms, mid 60s download and around 18-19 upload. This with a VF 75Mbps service. Two weeks ago speedtest.net started reporting pings in the 20s, downloads +/-15 but uploads only marginally reduced to 17. I've probably done around 20 tests in the past week at varying times but all results are in this frame. VF...

regain control of a bigfoot inbox by [email protected]
I've recently had my bigfoot inbox hacked and blackmail demands made by the hacker. They've told me they have access to files and folders on my desktop and could easily lock my computer so I'd have no access. Can anybody help me "regain control of the or close" the lifetime email address, so as to stop them using the email address?

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...

"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....

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.
