BT Finally Fixes ADSL MTU Problems

Posted: 16th Jul, 2003 By: MarkJ
ADSLGuide reports that BTWholesale is expected to complete its MTU fixing work sometime toward the end of this month, thus stopping the default MTU value in MS operating systems from causing fragmentation across the platform:

The solution is fairly simple and that is to increase the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) across the BT Wholesale network, the problem has being getting this done for all the different systems involved. The last round of upgrades started on 8th July and are ongoing still, this means that between the hours of midnight and 7am there is the risk that your connection may fail for a while as the upgrades are done. The worst case scenario should be a 2 hour outage over night.

Apparently ADSL users could see improved throughput and a reduction in CPU load on various devices across the network.
