PAYG SIM minutes don't run out - no monthly top up by David[_4_]
I'm looking for a backup SIM which will keep a phone going but not require a monthly top up. Ideally Vodaphone (to diversify networks) but retaining credit long term is more important. Cheers

Plusnet "reward card" by Chris
Hi all, My PN contract is coming to an end and they're promoting their new deals with the above-mentioned card. There are very few details what the reward card is other than this in the small print: "The Plusnet Reward Card is issued by Blackhawk Network (UK) Ltd, an Electronic Money Institution authorised in the UK by the*Financial Conduct Authority with Firm Reference Number 900023;...

UK drops down broadband speed rankings by Chris
Not really a surprise... https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/sep/02/uk-broadband-speeds-among-slowest-in-europe-study-finds As a side note why is downloading a "movie" the media proxy for speed? Who downloads films other than pirates? All legal access to films is via streaming, which means that you can watch a film without depending on raw d/load speeds.

Fritz!Box 7530 inconsistent behavior by Graham J[_3_]
I've never used one of these before. Friend has FTTC. Before her router arrived I tested the FTT connection with my Technicolor TG588v v2 - worked perfectly. The Fritz!Box 7530 duly arrived. I plugged it, it configured itself via TR-069 (from Zen); and appears to work OK, Friend can browse websites, can ping things on the internet, speedtests show the expected speeds, router shows the...

FTTP question by Graham J[_3_]
There are several third-party FTTP providers: for example Rutland Telecom, County Broadband near Colchester, Gigaclear, Hyperoptic ... generally these suppliers have dug trenches in the pavements to install their fibres. If any of thee suppliers were to go broke, who would own the fibres installed in the ground? Do we expect to see such providers forced out of business just to get access...

Delays accessing web services by David[_4_]
My PC has suddenly started pausing before loading web pages. I would normally associate this with a network time out or long wait for a resource. Given that there seem to be a large number of sites invoked when a web page loads (trackers, ad servers etc.) I wondered if there was some glue in the network at the moment. I know that there has been a recent large outage in London but I thought...

Will the old wired BB be turned off? My Fibre is to be activated on Friday but I've yet to receive the router could be without a connection for the whole weekend (Yes, booking it on a Friday was a silly idea)

the lesser spotted Gigabit Ethernet port ? by Abandoned Trolley
hi there I am just wondering what the general view is of the astonishing number of wireless routers on the market (both xDSL and cable) which are offering wireless connections of hundreds of megabits, but have no wired connection faster than 100M. I realise that most connections are directed toward the internet, and that that majority of customers have download speeds less than 100M so its...

toob by Malcolm Loades[_2_]
https://www.toob.co.uk/ FTTP 900Mbps is now available to me. I contacted their sales dept. to ask if I they provided a static IP address. No, and it's neither available by request nor by extra payment! A really huge disadvantage when you run your own mailserver. Could a broadband supplier who is unable to provide a static IP address really be considered a 'serious' provider? I think...

Email hosted by Elite by Graham J[_3_]
Does anybody here have an email account hosted by Elite? See: https://elite.net.uk/ I have one that I set up in May 2016 which I use for a small amount of personal email traffic. It has worked OK up until 21 June this year. Since then some emails that I send have bounced - possibly over half. The non-delivery message is of the form: Failed Recipient:

Are any BB suppliers any good at getting a grip of Openreach? by Roger Mills
Rant PlusNet provides my landline and FTTC broadband, and has usually been pretty good about fixing faults. However, my landline went dead on the morning of Tuesday 23rd June, and is STILL dead 13 days later as of Monday 6th July. Thankfully my broadband still works. I used the online reporting system to report the fault as soon as I

Broadband interruptions by MB[_2_]
Short interruptions to my broadband seem to becoming more common, only every few weeks and for a few minutes but annoying. Is there anything (reasonably cheap!) that could be used to monitor a broadband connection and log interruptions?

Powerline brands to avoid? by Chris
My daughter is being moved to WFH with a work supplied PC in two days. Her room is a fair distance from the router meaning that wifi may not be reliable enough - although she streams films all the time. So am considering powerline rather than run ethernet cables through the house and down a floor. Given the short notice I don't have time to consider what is best, only what to avoid. So are...
