And eventually they'll make it so you can only use the Home Hub with their service,
That may have already happened with BT Vision. See http://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Vision/Connection-Failure-BTVision-cant-connect-to-homehub-After-month...
I reckon BT is trying to lock the user out of the ADSL Stats. Like with FTTC and things like that, you can't access the stats, maybe there going to do that from now on for everything.
Although I'm not on Infinity, the stats are available to view directly from the modem, though I would get a serious botty kicking if I say how - search the www for the answer, but here's a couple of images that I did find
Surely if all ISPs force users to use a specific modem to access the internet then that breaches some laws, as it is a restraint of trade. Router manufacturers would then be locked in to specific ISPs and unable to sell their products to anyone who wanted to buy them. It would probably breach EU laws, even if it was not contrary to UK law.
Regarding sych rate - I have two lines
1st - personal with broadband and BT Vision
2nd - business with broadband
Speedtest on 1st does not show synch rate but runs additional qos test
Speedtest on 2nd does show synch speed
go figure that one . .
It appears that BT have restricted the number of tests to one per hour again. Is anybody seeing similar?
