Most people know that when we order a fibre service, BT wholesale provides, a modem so we can use the fibre service. Nothing wrong in that, it's self.
My beef is with BT wholesale locking the modems; so you can't get anything usefully, line stats or anything from the modem.
In this day, it's quite ridiculous that BT wholesale should be so short sighted and restrictive. Many people want to see the line stats and monitor there line, without having to rely on information from our isp's. Many ispís are not always honest about it.
While it is possible to unlock the modem or buy a unlocked fibre modem, we should not have to do that. That is added costs to the consumer that should not be the case. How hard is it for flaming BT wholesale, to have unlocked modems? Not hard at all.
We never had this problem with ADSL.
It's of my opinion that, BT wholesale locks the modems and don't want you to know you line stats, deliberately. This is probably because, they want to keep their bandwidth and network charges down and so they can give the customer less than they should. That is also so they can juggle the wholesale network without to much trouble.
Time to pull your finger out BT wholesale and stop being so restrictive. I hope your reading this. Rant over
Superspeed note. I'm talking, ment to be about, openreach, not BT wholesale, as Mr Saffron explains in his post.
