In reply to a post by ukhardy07:
AOL doesn't provide services anymore in the UK.
They, AOL BB. do sell service in the UK and they are diff products from TT and, I believe, use their own exchange kit separate from TT. They are a subsidiary of CPW/TT.
Note that even though AOL UK are technically a part of Carphone Warehouse now, they still run separate networks, which is why they appear separately on this site.
AOL has never sold Fibre.

Ah, OK. It must have changed sometime this year. Last time I looked they had their own products.

I'm sure a month or so ago AOL BB was offering their own 8 Meg Partial LLU ADSL2+ BB Only product. They were the only mainstream ISP offering BB Only w/out a surcharge, albeit capped. They also had a 16 Meg Full LLU BB + Phone package which could well have been hosted over the TT network.

I'm talking about the company called AOL BB owned by TT/CPW, not AOL Inc who only own AOL UK in the UK which doesn't do BB cuz they sold it to TT/CPW.

I know, the AOL relationships are unclear and not obvious.

I think it;s a shame it ever died. for me AOL in the proper years will be the best internet experience of my life. Nothing around these days even comes close.

Yes, if you like living in a walled garden cocooned by bloatware.
