There was nowhere on the site to say that if someone else is using it does it go against my data allowance down the line? So that is why i want it off!
It doesn't count
Within an hour of submitting my opt-out thing, I got an email from BT advertising the service stating it is automatically turned off by default if you joined from a certain date. Really this should be an opt in thing!
It used to be opt-in now you need to opt out...do you mean turned on by default?
Also I noticed is that BTFON and BTOpenzone have a MUCH stronger signal than my secure WIFI one. Actually twice as powerful.
Same signal strength on my hub for private, Fon and OpenZone...are you sure you're not picking up a neighbour?
The other annoying this is that I still have to have a separate wireless access point plugged in the back so that I can get it to work when I'm in the garden. the Business Hub I had a few months ago when a update went to that the signal strength selector disappeared so only broadcast at 25% which was terrible. And this BT HomeHub2 is not much better. Really bad considering their advert on TV saying best ever connection, but talking about the Wireless N really.
You need N capable network adapter to take advantage of the N enabled hub
Anyway anyone else had any issues trying to turn off this BTFON and BTOpenzone service? Is there a way YOU can do it from the hub incase I have missed it?
When I did a hard reset on my hub recently, I lost the Fon and Openzone channels and had to opt-out then opt-in on the BTFon website to get the hub re-enabled....as you have been opted-in automatically, it may not work but now that you have opted-out, perhaps if you do a hard reset it wont re-enable the Fon channel??
