Yesterday lunchtime I had a webchat with three.
They were insistent there was a known problem, but couldn't elaborate on what was effected, or had any ETA. True? Possibly - but I doubt they have the details. They also said they'd add me to notifications by text, but I'm sceptical - no confirmation on the BB sim nor main contact.
Anyway I pushed to get 'GoBinge' disabled which they seemed to think wouldn't help, but at the same time were ok to comply.
I think GoBinge may have had restrictions - whether still valid I can't be sure: https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2017/07/three-...
I then restarted the router (just in case)
Many have seen a connection reset clear the issue for a few hours. in my case though previously it came back in hours , but so far
no stalls (I'd still like to see for longer, but looking more hopeful)
'fast.com' speedtests have gone from around 2 Mbps up to near line speed. (see https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2017/07/three-...
for caveats at the time, but no idea if these have changed)
- no pauses etc for netflix, youtube etc
It's perhaps the latter that's most interesting from a netflix perspective.
The router's heading back to it's home in a few hours, but if anything changes will update here
NOTE: My contract is unlimited, so GoBinge offers no financial benefit. If not unlimited it can be a significant cost saving, and I don't know if they'll put it back on again after, so tread carefully.
I can also add briefly I tried vodafone in the router -- speeds about double in this location, but worked well. It's my plan B if I can't get 3 working.
