It is indeed

And if you try this download file it will support the TestMy.Net result (or at least it did for me)

It's quite easy to get too screwed up about the single thread TBB results. It's very difficult to know whether it makes that much difference in real life anyway.

What's really hacking me off at the moment is the fact that P8 and TTB seem to be tied together by knicker elastic at the moment and quite stretchy knicker elastic at that. wink

P8 thought I was on the 76XL Product until I contacted them this morning. They've certainly been very prompt about placing the regrade order with TTB following our discussion, even if TTB haven't been quite so prompt to react.

It's good they have been on the ball.

That link gave me nothing more than 6.1MB/sec so I assume that's the problem rearing it's ugly head. It's the same on my current BT Infinity line as well.

Everything else I do just works, I wouldn't notice it otherwise but then I guess I must do everything multi thread even FTP

Hi Bob,

With the help of PhilipD on Kitz, I now recognise the sea of red was because my IP address changed when TTB moved me back to the 8/10 product. And the reason the BQM response times were that much higher than I was seeing when pinging TBB.com was because the BQM was tracking someone else's line. What a glut, eh?!

Still waiting for the regrade back to 76XL to happen. Suspect it will be an early hours of the morning job as it usually is.

That makes sense re the BQM smile.

Re what happened to your account, I am sure my earlier hypothesis is correct. The timing of your product downgrade in relation to the bulk basic service upgrade, followed by a manual adjustment to correct any anomalies.

The person doing the corrections not being aware of an intervening phone conversation between you and someone at P8 agreeing you would remain on the accidentally regained 76/20.

So P8 line rental is £13 unless you have their BB and then it's 6..

Dosen't seem such a good deal now when you drill down into it.

For ADSL, you are correct, but for fibre it's included within the monthly cost.

Remember the calls are dirt cheap though (although this may not apply to you). My monthly bills have been well under £1.

ah okay- Adam just told me it was £13 for line rental when I have internet elsewhere but they are dropping their price from £38 to £35 in April. He didn't make it clear that line rental was included.

It's all over their website telling you. Just hover over any "I" symbol smile.

If you click the "I" you may get a fuller listing as well, particularly on the line rental page where you get to see all the optional extras. Such as caller display, which is the only one I have.

I see doing that on the ADSLx page that the top one is Annex M.

£38 a month for the 38XL fibre product definitely includes the line rental. Trust me I'm a Yorkshireman (short arms and deep pockets wink)

I pay for Caller ID and just about to pay £2 for a fixed IP address, but those are my only extras.
