There is an error in the link:

<a href="http://www.idnet.net "><img src="images/idnet.gif" border="0" align="middle" /></a>


It should be:

<a href="http://www.idnet.net"><img src="images/idnet.gif" border="0" align="middle" /></a>


But what do you expect from BT?

It doesn't look like it is a bona-fide BT site:

I'd expect them to check anything new they proposed to put up on the 'net against recognised standards and then with all the browsers they could lay their hands on... but after the debacle of their recent speedtest update I should have learned better frown

It probably is, sort of, but it looks like BT don't keep their sub-contractors up to date:

Westhill Communications, clients:

BT Expedite (who? crazy) and OpenReach are in there. Mind you, so is RBS which gives one cause for pause tongue

Impressive. Now I only wish BT would also fix the poor internet connections in our town...

But, but, I thought you were going to TT. Could it be you've concluded that since they use the same local loop, they aren't likely to provide a much faster or more reliable service.....

The local loop is fine, line is at the full 8128kbps synchronized speed of its so-called MaxPremium product (20CN, yes still widely employed by BT!) , at the 7.15mbps profile. The bottleneck is BT's local or regional exchange, speeds are so slow in the evenings that the internet at times becomes unusable, and IDNet has not been able to resolve this issue with BT.

So I signed up with Xilo's CPW LLU which doesn't use BT beyond the local loop, and which will take over the line next month. smile

Be interesting to see how you get on....

Just curious - which package did you sign up for? Like you I'm on vanilla 20CN but assumed I could get just broadband via Xilo and CPW wholesale. However, I would have to go for one of the Xilo phone/BB packages which I assume are fully unbundled on a 12/18 month contract.

Given my problems are due to a poor quality local loop, I doubt I would see sufficient gain to make a move worthwhile, particularly given the potential downside of a fully unbundled service.
