Three days ago I suddenly noticed that BTFON and BTOpenzone were broacasting from my BT HomeHub2. Took me about half an hour to suddenly figure out it was me. Figured out it was me as every time I was logged into the BTFON wireless and clicking a link my data light would flash.
Went into the router to see if I could turn it off. There was an OPT OUT bit. So proceeded to do just that. After submitted it said can take upto 48 hours to take place. Well it is over 2 days now and the two things are still broadcasting from my router. So there is no way I can see where I can MANUALLY turn it off.
There was nowhere on the site to say that if someone else is using it does it go against my data allowance down the line? So that is why i want it off!
Within an hour of submitting my opt-out thing, I got an email from BT advertising the service stating it is automatically turned off by default if you joined from a certain date. Really this should be an opt in thing!
Also I noticed is that BTFON and BTOpenzone have a MUCH stronger signal than my secure WIFI one. Actually twice as powerful.
The other annoying this is that I still have to have a separate wireless access point plugged in the back so that I can get it to work when I'm in the garden. the Business Hub I had a few months ago when a update went to that the signal strength selector disappeared so only broadcast at 25% which was terrible. And this BT HomeHub2 is not much better. Really bad considering their advert on TV saying best ever connection, but talking about the Wireless N really.
Anyway anyone else had any issues trying to turn off this BTFON and BTOpenzone service? Is there a way YOU can do it from the hub incase I have missed it?
