https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news/uk-world-news/yahoo-bt-down-email-working-3287154 When oh when are BT going to dump these idiots - it was promised nearly ten years ago. Today any mail received between ~07:15 and 14:00 has just vanished into hyperspace, with little hope of recovering it.

Plusnet dodgy Internet by tim...
For the past three weeks I have suffered continual episodes of "no internet" for several minutes at a time, but with access to my news server, so it's not the line that at fault. Are other people suffering from this? I lived with it over Christmas as I gave them the benefit of the doubt having people on holiday etc. But it's still happening.

DECT and FTTC, any known issues? by Chris Green
Following on from my posting in uk.telecom about our DECT phone problems (not detecting some calls and not always clearing down) it occurred to me that the only (fairly) recent change to our line was a switch from ADSL to FTTC. Are there any known problems likely to occur when using an FTTC line with DECT? Are filters more critical for example? Any other possibilities?

Open Letter To Mobile Suppliers by Java Jive
FWIW, I have recently sent the following open letter to all UK mobile suppliers except Three (because they already have a suitable plan available). If this or similar is an issue for others here, as it might well be, feel free to adapt the text of the following as a basis for your own complaint - remember to copy Ofcom and your local national and regional representatives: Copy: Ofcom ...

Can I get a refund for very band landline/FTTC broadband? by Alfred[_2_]
I had a stable ADSL connection for long time at home. 1 year ago they enabled FTTC in the cabinet and I upgraded to FTTC, which at the beginning was working very well. I was getting 10/40Mbps as promised and the connection was stable. That stable FTTC connection lasted for 6 months. From June till now the connection has been very unstable. I can stay for hours without internet. I got the...

Oh dear - Openreach... by PeterC
Ordered FTTC on 14/12, Order passed to OR on 16/12. ISP said about 3 - 4 days, OR says 7/1. Well, so long as FTTP is being installed, who am I to complain - I've got 3mbps :-( , if it holds up at SNR of 6 and 3.5km to the exchange (and 25kV sparks 100m away). -- Peter.

What is a new customer? by Tim+[_2_]
Obvious in one sense, but do returning customers count as “new”? Toying with the idea of switching between Virgin and Plusnet fibre every 18 months to take advantage of their “new customer” rates. Is this possible? Tim -- Please don't feed the trolls

Plusnet Support by bert
What has happened? Been trying to get in touch with them all this week. Either 10 - 30 min Q on calls or kept waiting for ages on Live Chat. Actually went from Pos 2 to Pos 3. Don't know what I did to deserve that. And all I wanted to do was renew my contract. Ah well, time for a change. -- bert

Openreach to be nationalised by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Back to the bad old days of you can only rent a phone / modem / TAM from the GPO and pay over the odds. Lots bonkers about this: - 1. Probably no domestic customers need fibre, just A/VDSL - 50Mbps is way enough to stream 4k video. Business customers may do (dozens of PC's on site), but this is a small sector of the market. 2. Leaves Virgin and the likes of Hyperoptic high and dry -...

Broadband in Japan by MB[_2_]
Corbyn "Only 8-10% of premises in the UK are connected to full-fibre broadband. It's 97% in Japan." Is it true that 97% of all areas of Japan have high speed fibre broadband? Their urban areas seem very congested with many services on poles and of course they have rural areas. Just always very sceptical of figures like that which can be thrown around by politicians.

Computer support in the Holbeach area by Graham J[_3_]
Can anybody recommend a PC support organisation in the Holbeach area that would be prepared to take on a farming business? The users have an assortment of different PCs, some farming-specific applications, and several very slow ADSL connections to their various very rural farm offices. None of the users know anything about computers so they need very sympathetic hand-holding, and pro-active...

Original SH - alternative firmware? -X-post by David[_4_]
I have finally swapped over from my original SH to a SH, to go from 160 Mb/sec to 200 Mb/sec. VM don't want the original SH back. I can see that I could use it as a WiFi router (as I do with a TP-Link cable router), by turning off DHCP and just plugging it into an Ethernet port. However it would be nice to make more use of it if possible.
