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...

Still about a million with slow broadband, but they tend to live in the sticks like my sister. For some reason they moan about how everyone else should pay for them to get high speed broadband, but they forget that for other...

Plusnet prices going up, or maybe down by Clive Page
Have other Plusnet customers had an email giving prices changes? Changes means increases, of course. It says that from 5th June they are increasing phone line prices by £1/month but including free Caller Display and Call Protect (previously 99p/month extra). But they also have some other special offers like "unlimited broadband and line rental" for £19.99/month, which is less than I'm...

Continued BT YAHOO! shambolics. by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
increasingly frequent paralysis at bt YAHOO! servers, with up to day long lock outs to all devices and only web mail. After 12 hours off on IMAP / POP3, today web mail gave spurious "login attempts exceeded" on first try, although the servers have started working again (but for how long?). WHEN oh when are BT going to get rid of 'joke' Yahoo!?

Cheap 4G dongle for short trip..? by MissRiaElaine
Hi all, My other half and I are planning a canal cruise again this year, and we really want some form of connectivity while we're away. So we're looking for a USB 'dongle' that we can use on the laptop, we don't want any sort of contract, as it's only going to be required for 2 or 3 weeks in any one year. Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best one to go for..? I know

Talk talk customer service by Tim+[_2_]
Had a mixed experience with TT today. My mother has her phone line and BB with them and has had so for many years. A couple of weeks ago when visiting we realised that the BB wasn't working. As we had a spare router at her house we tried that (after doing all the usual checks) but it was clear that there was an upstream problem. On checking on Downdetector we saw that there was a Talktalk...

Intermittent phone line disconnections, however..... by Mark Carver
........broadband service is unaffected. It's my mother's line. The fault is either the voice side either going open-circuit, or short circuit. On outgoing calls, it causes 'cleardown'. On incoming calls there's a click and loss of audio for a few 100 milliseconds, and all carries on again as normal. On Friday night, the line was permanently 'engaged' for at least 4 hours, at mother's end...

Openreach fibre availabilty gives "exploring solutions - no plan in place" but exchange is fibre-enabled by NY
We're looking to move house and one house that we've identified has fast ADSL (up to 17 Mbps) but no FTTC (according to various ISPs' availability checkers), even though the exchange is fibre-enabled and other streets a few hundred yards away get fibre. The Openreach checker says "What does 'exploring solutions' mean? This means that we’re working with government and industry to explore ways...

Changing a router by Woody
I asked on here a few weeks ago about routers that self reboot to overcome a problem that a farmer friend has. He is at the end of a long line (3Km) and usually gets about 1.6Mb. However sometimes, often after wet/windy weather, the speed drops to around to 650Kb and it can only be made to go back up by power cycling the mains. I will be seeing him shortly and I have a 24hr timeswitch which...

SOT: problems with Skype by Woody
I have Skype on two machines, a laptop running W7Pro and a desktop running W10Pro. This morning I attempted a Skype call with my daughter.

I checked and there was an update (8.17.02) but after that was installed I could not sign in - I just...
