No idea why they drop... its a weird thing thats only happened since being on Plusnet.... even when I was on Virgin and the services crawled down to 2mbps in the evening the radio would keep going.... sometimes it would reduce working bitrates (when it had 320kbps stream) but now it just stutters and then eventually dies unless I kill it first.

note that now it only stream at 128kbps but thats because the 320kbps streams where kill sometime back.

I'd go back to BT but they don't do static IP on home accounts, and business is stupidly priced.


According to BT.com Business 80/20 is £35 and £11 line rental - which is £46

Exactly what I pay for now on Zen.

So not really "stupidly priced"

Unless you go for EFM etc

Fixed that for you tongue wink.

Hasn't happened in all the years I've been with them. I think in such circumstances it wouldn't be the end of the world to wait until morning. If it was an infrastructure problem that involved Openreach it wouldn't make any difference anyway.

You were the one that started thanking God, don't take it so seriously! smile Of course others can supply me with broadband, all at a higher price and the connection speeds, etc., would be exactly the same (I do not have access to Virgin cable). I have no reason to change supplier at present; that might change, I don't know.

BT Business T & Cs:-
4.9 All charges are exclusive of VAT which is chargeable at the applicable rate, unless otherwise provided in the Service Schedule. Early termination charges and cancellation charges will not be subject to VAT.
Also the £35 seems to include the line rental, but Anytime Calls is £10pm.
