Net users in London are to be offered broadband at speeds up to 24 meg as part of ambitious plans by a new UK ISP. Privately funded Be Unlimited is a new local loop unbundling (LLU) operator that is installing its kit in BT telephone exchanges to provide broadband direct to end users.

BT Relate 2100 and 1571 by Peter Crosland
I have just got myself one of these and everything works fine with one exception. There is an LED that should illuminate when there is a callminder message waiting. I assume that this is intended to work by detecting the distinctive dial tone. It does not work. Could this be a broadband filtration problem? Any constructive suggestions on how to resolve this apart from getting the phone...

2meg or not 2 meg that is the question?? by Mick
Hi All, I am a little confused. My neighbour (the semi adjoining mine) is using (he says) Bulldog 2meg BB. I am on Zen 1meg BB. Now when Zen reduced their prices recently I requested a re-grade from 1meg to 2meg but apparently my line has failed the BT test. Now both me and my neighbour live in 6 year old houses with all the BT cables running underground and live approx 1.5km (as the crow...

the wrong kind of Broadband by Gaz
Just tried to apply for broadband, with Tesco.net, the online upgrade wizard claims that broadband is not available in the area. The address is a residential home, of which a number of the residents already have broadband. Thinking, ah, its a new number (a couple of months old) maybe it isnt on the BT database, lets ring Tescos, and see if it can be sorted out there. I must say, I have had to...

Belkin 802.11g 54Mb Wireless ADSL router by Gareth Edmondson
Hi Guys, Just after some advice. I have had a Belkin ADSL wireless router here on my desk for about a year running smoothly. Following advice from this group I changed the firmware to that released by SMC Networks. I have noticed over the past few weeks that the router is getting very hot. It still works but the heat coming out of it seems to have increased. On top of that if I leave the...

Do you *have* to manually connect with ADSL? by T i m
Hi All, I was talking to a friend who had recently gone to BB with BT over ADSL. They asked if it was right they had to click on the 'Connect' thing every time and I thought not. I typed them through various setting (over MSN) but we couldn't find anything that seemed to automate the process (ie you click on IE and it sparks up the BB)?

Always-On Mythology by Rob
Why is broadband described as "always-on"? It's as much as always-on as a dialup connection is if you leave the modem powered and don't drop the line. When I power up my computer, I turn on my Netgear router. It connects to my broadband provider and logs on using my username and password. How is that different to a modem connection? OK there's no dialing and I suppose thats a few seconds saved....

2mb upgrade woes - LONG by [email protected]
I live in a small village less them 1km away from the exchange, and have been enjoying 1mb Broadband for since October 2004. Imagine my joy when I heard my ISP (BT YAHOO) were offering free 2mb upgrades for everyone who could get it. Well in March 2005 my line was upgraded and initially I was still downloading at 1mb even though the line said 2mb; I phoned technical support about this... A...

Datastream: Any way to find out if your exchange is enabled for it? by Cullen Skink
If you order a datastream product and the ISP accept the order and you get an activation date does that mean your exchange is datastream enabled? At what point does the ISP know if it is? I only ask as my activation date of 8th June has come and gone with no service yet. Virgin have raised a line fault ticket with BT and I'm waiting for an engineer to call. Just wondered if it is a line fault...

Broadband and Dial up. by Donald McTrevor
Is this possible? When mine (brooadband) was installed I was told to delete all my dialup connection entries (against my wishes) however I have added some since, but not used them. Can I use them or will it confuse my computer? Could I just plug in my telephone modem now and dial one up (whilst still connected by my cable modem) or would I have to disconnect the cable modem (which causes...

Demon or Eclipse by Tx2
As per subject ..... for business use, unlimited. Which has the better service/back-up of the two? I've recently signed someone up to Eclipse, but there was a problem, and it took 'forever' to get through to support. Someone I was talking to on an unrelated matter then told me Demon would have been better ..... Who would you choose?

Surge suppression by McSpreader
A customer suffers failure of broadband connection after a thunderstorm. Diagnosis shows that the ADSL modem (or ADSL modem/router) has failed - presumably due to a surge pulse on the phone line. After replacing the faulty device, customer usually asks "What do I need to avoid a recurrence?" The more readily available and affordable potential solutions appear to be surge protected power...

Plusnet Broadband Plus question by Peter P
This looks very good value at 14.99 pm, but the downside is contained in the following: "With Broadband Plus you can use any type of Internet services you want. In order to ensure we deliver a high level of service, during busy periods we will give priority to services such as web browsing and email and a lower priority to high usage services such as downloading and file sharing." Can anyone...
