A friend of mine had Plusnet Fibre installed today, he was talking too the Openreach installer who said Talk Talk customers were suffering slow downs because Talk Talk were falling behind with bills and not paying BT for bandwidth needed ...or something like that, he said customers are only getting 2-3Mb where they would be getting 4-5Mb...??
now, as Talk Talk are LLu I thought this meant that THEY own the line and network? and wouldnt be paying BT for "bandwidth" on their own lines...am I wrong?
I was under the impression that its only on non-LLu connections such as IPstream and WBC (wholesale) where an ISP would be paying BT Wholesale for 'bandwidth'..?
can anyone clarify what this engineer was going on about? or was it just cods wallop?
some of these BT engineers are good and really take pride in their work & knowledge (usually the ones that frequent forums like TBB and Kitz)...but all the ones ive met in person at my house (7 of them) knew NOTHING about broadband provision or things such as SNR, QLN, Bit-Loading and two of them were SFI broadband engineers!!
- unless he was on about Talk Talk in a non-LLu scenario..but I dunno if you can get Talk Talk in an exchange they are not unbundled in? and lets face it..talk talk are in more exchanges than any other LLu ISP
