I have been with blueyonder for a good couple of years now,
and my service has started to slow down over the past year or so to a level
where I have been very disappointed with the service.
Today I have arranged to cancel my blueyonder account and I am
now going with an ADSL supplier who is offering me a faster connection that my
current 1mb for less that my 1mb + a
static ip, not only that I have heard that BY are going to start download
capping, and some more restrictive port throttling.
When I called to cancel today they tried to offer me the
10mb service, but to be totally honest I am glad I am leavening.
Read somewhere that there's a Swedish telco banding about a 24meg
connection in this country now.. can't remember where I read about that
tho, probably the Sun, so it must be true
The problem, as highlighted above by CkB, is our infrastructure. The
speeds they're getting in Hong Kong etc are largely down to how close
people are living to the DSLAMs. Normally they'll install one in the
basement of each appartment block, so you're only ever metres away from
As far as I know BT are planning some kind of CAT5 style rollout in the
next few years, getting rid of the copper wires and having a proper
network connection instead, now that sounds very interesting!
I can't grumble, got 8meg Bulldog here, only live 500m from my local exchange
