No I don't, as I wouldn't use the postal service if I were for any reason posting a letter next door, it would be less effort for me to post it through the door than for me to have to walk or drive to the nearest post office or post box, as for one thing I would have to walk past the door that the letter would need to end up in. Not a go at anyone. The differance between the postal service and ISP's is that the postal services, more often than not live up to their promise to deliver your letter in the stated timeperiod for the price of the stamp, whereas ISP's are always looking for someone eles to blame. Yet they are not prepared to do anything to pressure proper improvment to excisting equripment. If on a office network there is a problem with speed then there are network boosters that can be used. Also networks are planed so that insted of going the longest route from a-b the shortest posible route is used. Unlike here where we have three exchanges that feed landlines to the village, but in BT's wisdom they have uased the exchange the farthest away. Makes sence.
you took the letter example too literally it was the analogy that counted
maybe the exchange BT used has more space to accomodate the number of line required
as I said OFCOM are looking into cost and distance from the exchange and until then nothing will happen
In the mean time I think I shall hae to wait to see what happens after the migration tomorrow and after the ten day training epriod has finished. You never know I might be surprised, but I wont hold my breath for that either. Thanks any way.
Had an email from BT to say that it would be finished by 6pm on the 29th the day that they are doing the migration. Also today been told by a Mr David Steel from BT that BT would be no longer giving me any support for my broadband service in the future. Is this a breach of contract as part of the paid for package is support of that package. Come on you legal begal's.
Thank you for the count down imjolly, Can't wait to get the same as I am already getting, going on BT's performance up till now. I will let you all know how things have or havn't improved during and after the training period. I would have over the past thirteen months have used less energy training for the London marathon or 2012 Olympics. ha ha ha ha.
Update on the after migration speed during the tten day training period. I am pkeased to inform you all, that as I expected the speed has got slower. Been told that I should expect a minimum sync speed of 2271Kbps at the end of the training period and only if it is below this to phone the help desk. bt.com check my speed before purchase, not yet updated for the exchange, as it still gives the same information as for when I was on ADSL1. I take it that the webmaster is as slow as the broadband that BTOpenreach supply to it's ISP's, for them to supply to their customers. Here's a thought, how about BTOpenreach having a month when they open up a temp call centre to speak to their customer's customer's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bet the phone system would overload and burn out.
"john46" I do believe that this post was not to do with speed but with the fact that BT has said at all levels that they will not give me any more support in the future. I was trying to find out in this could be a breech of contract as part of their t&c is to give support for their product.
