| || || | New LLU ISP to offer 24meg broadband
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.

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...

I am a little confused. My neighbour (the semi adjoining mine) is using

prices recently I requested a re-grade from 1meg to 2meg but apparently my

| || || | the wrong kind of Broadband
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...

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...

I was talking to a friend who had recently gone to BB with BT over
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
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
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
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?
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...

Is this possible?
When mine (brooadband) was installed I was told to delete all my dialup

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

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?

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

| || || | Plusnet Broadband Plus question
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."
