Most people assume that internet and phnone lines are separate they are not.  Bt provide internet and phones lines worldwide.  BT is one of the largest telecomunication companies on the planet.   

BT is actually not in the top 10, they are swamped by them all.

I was told that it is affect BT customers in the USA as well.

BT does have a presence globally, but it's business products

Lots of people think that Bt and open reach are separate companies that is not the case.  

But they are :-

i have to report virgion does not have a problem as they don't use BT DNS.  

 

CommCast use BT DNS thats why they have a problem.  Lots of companies use BT phone lines for their service, even SKY use BT in some areas.  BT control all landlines in the UK except for Virgin lines.  

 

In the uk their are two main providers of phone lines BT and Virgin the rest buy time off of them.

 

 


What you have said above is total nonsense. BT do NOT control all the landlines in the UK in the slightest.

Show where Comcast use BT DNS servers. They are a cable company in the USA

actually you are wrong bt own open reach.  
what you are reffereing to is the provider of internet into the uk tat is different but not open reach.  
 
DNS from google is not being blocked why is this the simple answer is that BT is being paid not foce its DNS not to work with windows update, cause they are being paid to do this, by either Google or Apple.  
Micrososft told me its a BT issue which they told them about on 30/1/19 but BT dohave done nothing.  Its not in microsofts interest to block BT.  To destroy microsoft all you have to do is block them from the UK one step at a time starting with the windows update.

.. and the world is flat and there was a 2nd shooter at the grassy knoll not to mention the aliens at Area 51.
