BT replacing all V1 VDSL Modems or just Infinity Customers ?


[link to this post]
 
It seems that BT are replacing all pre Aug 2011 VDSL modems for their Infinity customers, presumably because of the overheating problems, but is this being extended to folk (like me !) using another ISP for their FTTC service ?

It's BT Openreach replacing all the modems for their FTTC service. This affects all of BT Openreach's customers, being BT Retail (i.e. infinity), Plusnet, AAISP, etc etc.

I'm happy wiv my original one fanks guv frown.

I don't like the reports of some replacements being noticeably slower, and I only just get into 40Mbps.

Same here, it has been running since April '11, so just over 9 months now and it has been fine. It is sat on a small bookcase, it is warm but not too hot to touch.

Just to let you know RobertoS that I have had a new 3B modem and my speeds are the same as they were prior to the exchange (37.48Mb prior, and after).
I hope I am not in a minority though, and these new modems last and don't give speed issues.
My original modem failed, but it didn't even get warm and was always on it's side.

Most do seem to be OK. In fact it's a while since I saw a "slower" report, but there were several in the first phase of the mass replacement. May have been a bad batch, but still, if it ain't bust, don't fix it!

The good side of it, if and when I get a new one, is that some people manage to hang onto the old one as well. If I manage that, one of them is going to get hacked for the stats smile.

They may me wise to that...

When my first Modem died, the OR Engineer took the old one away for exchange with the suppliers under Warranty.
