A recent update to Sky Broadband’s latest SR203/204 Sky Hub wireless router appears to have caused a bug for the ISP’s VoIP using customers, which results in a 1 hour time difference on DECT handsets that can sometimes prevent calls from reaching the customer. But a fix is coming, even if we don’t know when.

The Scottish Government has issued a small update on the progress of their £600m R100 (Reaching 100%) project with BT, which is working to extend “superfast broadband” (30Mbps+) coverage.

UK ISP BT Business has today extended the availability of their converged HALO packages to include small business customers, which combines their “fibre broadband“, 4G unlimited mobile and digital phone line (app based) service into a single bundle from £42.95 +vat per month.

New research from Point Topic has found that world fixed broadband subscribers grew by just 1.25% (13.9 million) in Q1 2020 to total 1.13 billion, but the main impact from COVID-19 won’t be understood until Q2 and Q3. Meanwhile almost every connection technology saw growth, except copper (ADSL etc.) lines that fell -10.3% year-on-year.

The UK Government has today confirmed a dramatic U-turn, which means that new core and non-core 5G kit from Chinese tech giant Huawei will be banned from use in mobile networks from 31st December 2020. But existing kit will get until 2027 for removal and a decision on FTTP broadband ISPs will come later.

The Superfast Leicestershire project in England has secured a small pot of £100,000 in extra funding to help the scheme spread “superfast broadband” (30Mbps+) further, although the details remain unclear. Meanwhile the East Leicestershire contract for Phase 3 has been re-tendered “as no credible bids were received.”

Senior broadband and mobile figures from UK telecoms giants BT and Vodafone have today warned cross-party MPs on the Science and Technology Committee that they’d need at least 5-7 years to fully remove Huawei’s kit from their networks, or “blackouts” could be a risk. The cost may also rise into the billions.

3rd July, 2020 (13 Comments)

Fixed home broadband customers of UK ISP Vodafone have been quick to spot today that the provider’s “Ultimate Speed Guarantee” (primarily focused on their “superfast” FTTC packages) has suddenly vanished from the operator’s website. The feature gives a discount when the connection goes too slow.

1st July, 2020 (22 Comments)

UK ISP Plusnet has introduced new discounts on their ADSL and FTTC based broadband and phone packages, which reduce their monthly prices for the first 18 month contract term. On top of that they’ve also thrown in a “Reward Card” (pre-paid Mastercard) worth between £50 to £60.

At the end of last year the Scottish Government revealed that LOT 1 of their £600m R100 (Reaching 100%) project, which had given BT “preferred bidder” status and was aiming to extend “superfast broadband” (30Mbps+) coverage, had become the subject of a legal challenge by Gigaclear. Sadly the case is now threatening more delays.

New customers of UK broadband ISP Talk Talk Business may be pleased to learn that they too can now access the provider’s latest “best-ever” Wi-Fi Hub (Sagemcom F@st 5364) router, which was first launched for their residential subscribers (here) all the way back in May 2018. At least it looks identical to us.

Mobile operator and UK ISP EE has today reintroduced converged pricing on their fixed line ADSL, FTTC and G.fast based home broadband plans, which in simple terms means that the operator’s existing Pay Monthly mobile customers will pay less than somebody who just orders their fixed line service by itself.
