Am I missing something?


[link to this post]
 
When Digital Region failed back in 2014 I lost my 20Mb fibre broadband and was forced to migrate over to 2Mb ADSL from Origin. At that time I created a Broadband Quality Montor to keep an eye on the service. I never really had any issues (apart from the speed) and when Virgin became availble I'm ashamed to say I completly forgot about it.

Today I went to it with the thought of updating it to read Virgin Fibre and was amazed to see that results are still being generated - despite the service being terminated and my IP address obvioulsy changing.

What's going on? What results am I seeing? What obvious fact have I missed?

That IP Address is now used by someone else, but you never deleted the BQM from your Main Site profile. So thinkbroadband continues to ping it, and you are monitoring it smile. Even though it is of no use nor interest to you.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - AAISP Home::1 80/20. 200GB. Sync 64872/13513Kbps @ 600m. BQMs - IPv4 & IPv6
