I laughably got a call from BT today asking if I wanted to switch to their broadband service. I spent the first 18 months of my Internet life with BT and during that time I was cut off at 8.30pm every night, had trouble getting on the net at all some days and watched my bill go up from the introductory offer of £26 a month to well over £50 a month. Furthermore, I was under contract with BT so I couldn't finish with them until my 18 month contract expired so I had to put up with sky-high bills, limited internet access and BT engineers taking to me down the phone blaming my TV and DVD player for interrupting the connection.
Since I've been with Virgin however, I've had very few problems and a more than reasonable monthly bill. Everytime I see a BT advert these days I burst out laughing because everything they say in the adverts is absolute bullshit.
When I go to Troubleshooting it says 'Wifi2 doesn't have a valid IP configuration Not fixed'. It says it can't fix it. What do I do? What is Wifi2? The signal showed up under just 'wifi' until last night.
Folk were asleep so the connection can't be overtaxed.
No, but it could be having problems north of you.... did you say the phone was OK through it? Are you sure it's the home interweb it's using and not the 4G? How are others on the home interweb this am?
Can anyone recommend a decent broadband supplier? We have had good performance from Virgin but it is getting too pointlessly expensive so looking to switch. We will need to install a phone line to do this as well.
I've used BT for about a decade. Not the cheapest by a fair bit, but the service is very very reliable. I can count the outages I have had with them on one hand. Used a few other companies prior to that which were cheaper but not as reliable.
