We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
@GG - I hear you of course but having invested in a beautiful LG OLED TV I want as much 4k as I can get and the only 2 sources are Netflix and Amazon. 15 Mbps +/- seems to be the threshold for UHD delivery. So I have few choices. If I could manage (2 X 15) X 90% I'd be laughing. The bonding works well and in extremis I can tether a 4G phone. Costly though.
@Webby - What do you mean by resync? I have switched the HH off/on before proceeding. I have no other control.
I understand what you say. Sometimes I get to talk to an OR person who really understands the issues and is happy to have an engineer-to-engineer conversation. I know that with G.Fast there are even issues with wire pairs in a given single cable. But surely this means that if the problem lies with the later installs, i.e. newer cable configuration at the cabinet, then everyone, probably 50 to 100 people will have the same issue. They would have to fix that I expect.
Of course I have to wait the 10 days but it doesn't look so good right now.
4k TV, whilst not necessary for extension of longevity, is a genuine pleasure and adly's comment about minimum BT requirement is correct. This of course begs the question as to what BT TV think they are playing at in spending billions on football when (I'm guessing a little here) less than half their potential customer base could ever enjoy it.
TelephoneBob's remark (sarcasm aside) about the "old days" also has merit in that nowadays most people will indeed want max speed - but they probably don't bother to know that they are not getting it. I can confidently predict that as demand for 4k rises the increasing numbers who begin to realize that they can't get it reliably will get very cross indeed.
Current 4k sources are, mainly, blu-ray, satellite and internet. The main internet sources are YouTube, Amazon and Netflix. I am confused about true bandwidth requirements. If I run a blu-ray I can switch on a meter and I can see that for a big, big blockbuster peak streams are of the order of 130 Mbps. I am obviously limited to 15 Mbps or less via internet. Yet, mostly, Amazon and Netflix come through well and after an initial buffer period run nicely in UHD. The Crown was magnificent. I assume that their compression algorithms are very good. I have SKY Q on order and it is supposed to have very good bufferring. We will see.
Unlike curved screens and 3D, 4k will come in big time. I would expect that in 12 to 24 months Openreach will be buried in complaints.
