MER on ADSL2+


[link to this post]
 
My connection switched back from MER to PPPoA several months ago.

Out of interest, is there anyone on Sky ADSL2+ who is still connected with MER?

Nope, PPPOA like yourself.

Yeah, I found that when I had MER available could still connect with PPPoA. Since the Sky Hub switched back to PPPoA, MER no longer connects on other routers. Interesting that some exchanges still have MER available on ADSL2+.

Still on ADSL2+ & MER here.

I wonder if this is equipment related as I was on PPPoA until I got the Sky Hub (I was part of the trial group) and when I switched to the that it went to MER.

I would switch back to the old Sagem to test but I've got everything running smoothly and, frankly, the Sagem is a (bigger) pile of the brown stuff.

Good question. I can't remember exactly when MER was disabled on my line, but I'm fairly sure it was before I plugged in a Sky Hub. My other router is a Sky D-Link DSL-2640S.

Could be exchange related as I'm also on the Sandy exchange.

OT: I remember you asking about fibre before you moved to Sandy, just to let you know Sky Fibre is now available here smile
