Sorry Should have been in last post! by John Scott
If you're broadband is with Blueyonder and you're out of your 12 months tie-in period, ring them up and tell them that you're thinking of cancelling because Bulldog broadband are offering you a better deal. The chances are that they'll give you a free upgrade like they did for me and half of my office.

France Telecom 'planning C&W bid' by {{{{{Welcome}}}}}
France Telecom is preparing a £4bn ($7.3bn; 5.9bn euro) takeover bid for communications giant Cable & Wireless (C&W), the Sunday Telegraph has said.

2M upgrade. Dodgy results. Suggestions/ advice pls by Vortex
Hi, My ADSL recently was upgraded from 512k to 2M. I am 6k from the exchange. I use a DSL604+ router. Business Serve is the ISP. At first the connection only worked a minority of the time. Downstream SNR was marginal (never better than 4dB) and when it swung low the connection was lost and the router would not negotiate. When the connection was up it worked very very well.

A plus for Plusnet by wooosh
11 months with Plusnet and I have to say they have provided me with excellent service. After watching all the bitching and moaning this past six months I was thinking of jumping ship after my 12 months. When I think of it, I have no reason to leave. Excellent connection. Excellent speeds Good customer service.

Wireless point to point link for broadband by Chris
I am too far away from my local exchange to get ADSL but I have found a willing partner who can get broadband and have been looking at the options to link to his service via a wireless link. We have direct line of sight with a distance of 1.5Km. I am looking at Netgear Antenna for the purpose. One snag I have hit is that the line of sight goes straight through national grid high voltage...

Plusnet Problems by J B
I've tried the 'ticket' system, but I'm getting nowhere. :-(( Thursday - BT Engineer removed highway, and enabled BB, said it would probably work at 1MB, but there was a problem with testing Marconi equipment (Is our exchange Marconi?) Friday - Sooty came and 'set me up' with a D Link router. The D link said it was running 64K up and 128K down. That's slow! Rang plusnet, and they said do a...

Plusnet line move woes. by pete devlin
I put a mate on plus net a while ago and all has been fine. Until he moved house that is. We did the online number move page but for some reason it kept defaulting back to his original number after the submit instead of the new number. A phone call to support ensured they had the correct number. Just as well because it was recording the wrong number!! Then we find out that the previous...

Switching ISP by Mike
Hi, after many years with ClaraNet (dial-up, ISDN and now Broadband) connections, I am moving to a new provider. I've always been very happy with ClaraNet's service, even though they are more expensive than many other ISPs. However, I wish to upgrade from a 512k to a 2mb connection and their 2mb charges are simply stupid. They also want to charge me 50 pounds to upgrade, so I am leaving and...
