BT HH4 speed issue by Woody
A friend who is a farmer also runs a small caravan site and has provided free wi-fi for his guests. He is at the end of almost 3000m of (mainly) overhead line and so the download speed is slow. When we arrived on site last month it was doing almost 1.6Mb. We then had two nights of heavy rain and frighteningly high winds. When I checked again the download was only 650K but the upload was...

Req: Domain Registrar Recommenation by Anthony R. Gold
I need to move a .co.uk domain to a new registrar. I only need registration and name service for the domain's zone, no hosting of email or a web site. Does anyone have a recommendation based on reliability, economy and customer service? BTW, can a new domain registrar transfer in the existing DNS zone or will I need to re-enter the data? Thanks.

Upgrade? by Davey
My ISP is suggesting that I might like to upgrade from my current 7-year-old Thomson TG585 router, to a new FRITZ!Box 3490. They are not pressurising me. Bearing in mind that my use is fairly simple, a PC or two, a printer, and a PVR, all wired, and a Wi-Fi connected camera, is there any great advantage in doing this? The cost is about 75. If there will be definite advantages, it would be...

BT [Yahoo!] servers screwed yet again by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Can't access email from Outlook , tablet nor phone. Third or fourth time in two weeks - outages last many hours. Can still log into web mail. Usually affects main account, but two sub accounts briefly affected on Monday. Very little held online (.ost), so hard to see any rationale, such as difficulty syncing . When Oh when are BT going to dump Yahoo! and do email properly?

BT TV box uncommanded power on by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Mine keeps coming on at odd times, despite being set to be on cold standby and no configured events. If previously on an online channel it saps bandwidth between the router and the net, slowing my PC. Anyone know how to stop this short of unplugging the wall wart?

John Lewis Broadband versus TalkTalk for VDSL/FTTC (traffic shaping) by Winston Smith[_2_]
Right now I have ADSL with Plus.net. Recently the the cabinet in my street was fibre-enabled, and I can now get VDSL (FTTC). Right now I am getting 1Mbps up/ 6Mbps down, and 65 ms ping. I will be upgrading to 10Mbps up/38Mbps up. Will the ping time improve much? I can try to get a higher speed 76Mbps product, but I doubt I can get that speed 300 meters away from the cabinet or that there...

Domain Name Release by Simple Simon
I have several domain names hosted on daily.co.uk left over from previous projects. I no longer want/need them. They are all set to expire but I would be happier if they were released now. Some however have another year to run. I have asked daily if they would release them now but I got a flat "no" in reply.

Strange speeds by Woody
A farmer friend has four lines to his premises all with their own broadband (ask ye not why.) They run on the same U/G cable direct from the exchange to a pole DP and then in the same O/H multi-core cable to his premises. All are BT circuits as there is no other option. Can anyone explain to me why dslchecker shows different end speeds and why there is so much variaton, all in Mb/s: ...

Is it better to install 1gbit fibre or 10gbit fibre in UK plc? by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
On Sunday, 7 January 2018 12:58:59 UTC, 7 wrote: Is it better to install 1gbit fibre or 10gbit fibre in UK plc? -------------------------------------------------------------- The answer is 10gbit fibre. The answer is dark fibre and you stick whatever kit you want at each end... Oh and you do NOT need 100 cores - just a few (for redundancy).
