Plusnet don't issue HH5.


Good thing we were on about BT then...


Think I prefer separate modems and routers - gives one the opportunity to have the modem at the NTE5 and the router linked over ethernet in another location within the property. Probably not relevant to your office setup though smile

The TP-Link should be better than Plusnet's Speedtouch effort.

Yes I hope so - it's a WR-1043ND and in the past it's been rock solid when used with VM. I assume it just attaches onto the HG612 like it did to the SH.,

Edit:: If I remember the HG612 is the super hub I will be ok smile

I've got a TP-Link 5 port gigabit switch and it's pretty good on the LAN - however I'm on ADSL2+ with a 100Mbps router so I only see the benefits when transferring files over the LAN.

Sounds like you're in the same boat as me then. Exchange with <800 properties and not in any rollout plans.

In reply to a post by Chrysalis:
The question is now, where will this cost get passed onto? the shareholders wont eat it, are we to see higher callout fees, higher install charges?


Very likely ... people are demanding cheaper and cheaper broadband access and cheaper phone lines. To get that BT has to cut costs, hence off-shoring support services, providing just basic routers, minimising staff numbers so that they are 110% employed. A few years back, BT would give a very rapid turn around for faults and they achieved that because teh technicians were only 85% utilised and could be mobilised rapidly keeping wait times down.

Rapid response costs money - so users will need to pay, whether that is directly to BT or through their ISPs and as OFCOM have demanded te changes, BTs cost base will increase and OFCOM will have to allow the costs t be passed on.
