Maybe they want to retrieve the Openreach modem


surely if that was the case they would of come for it on the 8th when they activated ADSL and i dont think they ask for them back ive got 2 (well 3 because i bought on off ebay) 2 ECIs provided by OR and 1 huawei, suppose ill find out tomorrow and best move some draws out of the way on the off chance they want to get access to the phone socket.

im sure It should be just a case of going and actually uncoupling the fibre headers though as this is what they forgot to do on the 8th

No I don't think they will want it back. I think that Sky have just booked an Openreach visit to get this sorted so you can tell him/her that you wish to return to an adsl service.

My upload is about 2, which for me is fine, I got a 10Mb/s download. I am happy with the system I have got, I don't feel the need to go to fibre.

For me the problem is usage - I would be an AAISP customer for IPv6 and their excellent team, but at ~200GB of usage a month there are a lot less options. (Streaming internet TV services is the use case).

My friends and family in the USA are all pretty much cable only (due to distance) and over there the usage allowances start at 250gb a month. Here we think 40GB or 50GB is "high usage". :-/

same as BT Infinity which I'm on. Neither do static IP addressing, or IPv6 or reverse DNS - and that's just the start. They don't compare with AAISP.

The s3 and s4 imo suffer from been too slim, the design is to make the phones look nice but they are less practical,
I did find my S4 too slim, and promptly dropped it as soon as I got it out the box, I did however purchase a otter box defender case, which whilst making it a bit bulky, it is now very easy to hold, and well protected.

I agree those handsets are not my favourite size either, I tend to find blokes holding them in their hands, and women put them in handbags. They don't fit in pockets. One reason to avoid them - but each to their own smile


I was in two minds as to whether to get/keep the S4 due to the size, I pay £12 a month for a sim only contract and buy second hand phones, and had just bought an S2, which is a very nice size. Then a friend said he'd been offered an S4 upgrade, but he didn't want or need a smart phone, and he offered it to me for £300, he didn't want the hassle of selling it for more.

I find the S4 a bit big, but then I do have it in a big sturdy case (Otter box defender), but I find it fits comfortably in my jeans pocket, although sometimes I do tend to carry it, but more so that it doesn't get stolen when walking.

IIRC when I had Sky ADSL, DLM will kick in after 2-3 days then it shouldn't take more than a week to stabilise the line.

Yeah, annoying, and they're stuck with what the chip vendors are selling. Qualcomm were first to market with a low power LTE chipset and Apple bought their first 6 months of production!!
