BT Street Hub 2.0 kiosk

6th September, 2021 (25 Comments)

The Mayor of Derby City, Councillor Robin Wood, has criticised a planning application by BT to deploy the next generation of their smart UK Street Hub WiFi kiosks (formerly InLinkUK). According to the Mayor, the only people using phone boxes today were “either drug dealers or prostitutes,” although kiosks aren’t quite the same thing.

Customers of BT’s consumer broadband ISP, specifically those with one of their “full fibre” (FTTP) packages, can now benefit from a new “speed boost trial”, which will allow them to test out faster download speeds of up to 500Mbps at no extra cost. Customers who decide not to keep the faster tier will be put back on their previous package.

After a long hunt, the BT Group has today officially announced that the former CEO of ITV, Adam Crozier, has been chosen to replace Jan du Plessis as Chairman when he retires from the UK role – thought to be worth £700,000-a-year – on 1st December 2021.

16th August, 2021 (49 Comments)

Alternative UK network providers have heavily criticised Ofcom’s provisional decision not to oppose Openreach’s (BT) proposal for a “major” price cut to their wholesale Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband products, which they warn could impact competition by discouraging ISPs from adopting rival networks.

14th August, 2021 (33 Comments)

Businesses that decide to sell their unwanted BT Cloud Voice handsets on eBay need to take extra care because some models, such as the Yealink W60P phones, may retain the prior customer’s account credentials. As a result, those who purchase them could find that they’re able to make calls on another person’s account.

UK ISP BT has today launched a range of discounts for new customers, which among other things knocks their Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based ultrafast and gigabit speed home broadband packages down to some of the cheapest monthly prices that they’ve ever offered. The setup fee is also now free.

6th August, 2021 (14 Comments)

As expected Ofcom, the UK telecoms regulator, has today launched a final consultation on Openreach’s (BT) recently proposed plan to introduce a “major” change to the wholesale pricing of their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband products for ISPs (details), which could result in cheaper prices for consumers.

Ookla, which operates the popular Speedtest.net service, has just published a new Q1-Q2 2021 (H1) study of 5G mobile broadband performance from Three UK, EE, Vodafone and O2 (VMO2), which found that Three delivered the fastest average (median) download speeds of 231.07Mbps. But Vodafone wins on uploads (19.69Mbps).

3rd August, 2021 (7 Comments)

A new report from market analysts at Bloomberg Intelligence (BI) has perhaps stated the obvious by concluding that the recent UK mega broadband and mobile merger between O2 and Virgin Media is “unlikely to trigger a chain reaction of mergers,” which is because there “simply aren’t many easy or credible deal options left.”

3rd August, 2021 (46 Comments)

Openreach (BT) has published the next – Tranche 5 – list of 86 UK exchange locations where they plan to move away from old copper-based analogue phone (PSTN / WLR etc.) services and on to a new all-IP network, which will occur in areas where over 75% of premises can get their Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network.

Civil engineering firm Avonline Networks has today confirmed what we revealed back in June (here), which is that they have secured a 5-year contract to help UK ISP Ogi (formerly Spectrum Internet) rollout a new gigabit speed Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband service across South East Wales. But we do get a bit more detail.

A new Which? survey of more than 3,000 customers from five major UK broadband ISP and TV providers – including BT, Sky Broadband, Virgin Media, TalkTalk and EE – has found that two thirds of respondents experienced at least one problem with their service in the past year, while 30% said the price they pay had increased.

BT-Bangor-Exchange

30th July, 2021 (0 Comments)

Some broadband ISP and phone services in parts of Bangor (Gwynedd, North Wales) were disrupted yesterday after a fire broke out in BT’s exchange building at around 5:40pm, which perhaps mercifully sits just down the road from the local fire station and thus the incident was quickly brought under control. Nobody was hurt.
