Plusnet billing failures by Clive Page
Plusnet have changed their billing system and sent me two emails, first to say that this months bill would be delayed, and later to say that it was available. But the usual web links to billing simply don't work, bringing up all sorts of error messages. Don't they test new systems at all? Or maybe they have hired the same IT bunch as TSB? There are scores of postings on the forum...

Jersey fibred up by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Various news reports that after seven years' rollout every premise in Jersey now has fibre broadband. Contrary to claims by other contributors to this that this would only cost tuppence, it cost over 40M to reach 45k premises using 3Mm or 4,000 miles of fibre (reports differ). That's nearly 1,000 per connection! Their government paid nearly half. If you actually want gigabit Ethernet, JT...

He then contacted his supervisor who told him of the outage and said that most users were back on line at 5pm but that there were still some...

TalkTalk modems by Woody
Could anyone answer simple question please? An elderly neighbour has had her TT router replaced. She had a Huawei HG633 which has been replaced with a HG635, but both exhibit the same problem - or at least perceived problem. Power up and it goes through all its set up, flashing lights etc and eventually stabilises with four steady greens. However after about a half hour the Internet light...

"Mesh" wifi systems by Tim+[_2_]
Anyone tried the BT system? https://m.shop.bt.com/learnmore/bt-branded-products-and-services/b t-whole-home-wi-fi/ Quite a lot of money but we have to have another access point in our house to get coverage which works, but is a bit of a pain as devices frequently hang on to the "wrong" hotspot and have to be manually switched to the strongest signal.

Intermittent "destination address unreachable" when pining router by NY
What router fault could cause wireless devices (laptop, phone) intermittently to lose contact with the router (can't even ping the gateway address - destination address unreachable), even though the laptop believes that it is still connected when you click on the wireless icon in the system tray. The wireless icon says "no internet connection" but I don't think that means that the router has...

Newly upgraded from ADSL to FTTC/VDSL - fast sync but very slow speedtest.net speed by NY
My parents have recently upgraded from ADSL to FTTC/VDSL. Their new router is syncing at about 41/6 Mbps (D/U). However speedtest.net is giving speeds of about 4/2 Mbps (D/U). Is there something that the ISP (Plusnet) needs to do on a newly-upgraded line to remove some throttling? As of yesterday evening, my parents hadn't had the official "you are upgraded" notification from the ISP so it's...
