Long wait for VP fix!


[link to this post]
 
Seems BTw are really dragging their heels now. Ran the Plus Net checker on this exchange to see if I could give some good news to some neighbours stuck in a contract and suffering the random slow downs I am also seeing at times.

VP status is now RED
The ETA fix time is: 01 Jan 70..... so only 58 tears to wait!

Thats what you get for posting in a hurry... oh well too late to edit now!
The exchange is Pembroke (SWPM)
Milford Haven (SWMF) has the same fix date for its Red VP's,

I note that Tenby is now green., but Haverfordwest (SWHV) is now yellow so the 3 largest exchanges in this county now have contention issues at the exchnage. I must check to see if Milford has our "secret LLU" now as a friend of mine there says she is getting terrible speeds in the evening on Orange 8 meg

Any ISP that thinks that selling my click traffic is acceptable is MisinPHORMed
Market 1 (IPSC) - a BT group investment NOT Spot
VP status Red
Leaving the BTw 8 meg crawl behind thanks to Vivaciti LLU from 20th March

Depending on their provider they could get switched over to the adsl max premium product without extending their contact - this would give their traffic priority over the BT section of the network. This made quite a bit of difference when I was experiencing local exchange congestion.
