had an email from bt offering the hub4 free if i take out 12 mths unlimited broadband for £16 a month + line rental no mention of the fibre in the email however...
I got the same email f'n cheeky sods
BT can ram their offer's where the sun don't shine!!
Still no reply from NGA
Very informative map. Makes the topic more interesting.
Should I be surprised that we are not connected to the nearest cabinet. Is it normal and can one get the line changed to improve speed?
We are south east of 45 but connected to 27.
there is no chance that openreach would change your connection to a different cabinet. if they did they would be doning nothing but chnaging people from one cabinet to another
probably and the rest
Connection has stabilised at 60/18 after a week - better than the 53/15 estimate.
1. Audio dropout on all IPTV channels over BT Vision e.g. Sky Sports, Discovery etc - sub 1 sec drop every minute or so, this fixed itslef after a few days - no idea what was causing it.
2. Wireless on HH5 - some 5GHz devices slow down badly/lose connection if you walk through the house with them, we are an old house with thick walls, I might be better just running with the 2.4 Ghz network.
Apart from that no issues - it handles multiple HD streams which would have been impossible with the old HH2 and it's 6.5Mbs, also asked son if any problems with gaming on the PS3 - positive grunt so all OK 🙂
