    Ok for those who are on BT for broadband you will want to either laugh or admit you have done this:

    My GF is on BT, and I pay for it.

    Now a 2gb capped line was enough for us as I wasn't there all of the time, but she's now discovered Limewire, so I'm expecting one of those letters anytime soon! :biggrin

    Well we have a shared connection at my house, and i think we have a 30 gig limit , whioch isnt too bad really . But when theres a bit of rain or wind the line to our house is affected, then you ring BT up and tell them what it is , all they say its beyond out control etc blah blah , but they still know how to get the money out of the bank.

    Does anyone now about wi max, or have any links i could follow. I hear its wireless etc , but within a 30 mile radius ????

    If the rain affects the line then check the phone part to see if there are crackles on the line during this time.

    If so then use *that* as a complaint to BT. They will usualy go looking for the faulty joint then.

    WiMax won't be with us for some time yet! And, being the cynic I am, I doubt it will work in quite the miraculous way touted by some journalists!

    I'm with BT.
    What I don't understand is how I'm supposed to tell if I've been cut off?
    a semi-state of disconnection is their normal level of service so I might not notice when I slip from one to the other...

    Er - ADSL cut or voice cut?

    If ADSL most modems have a LED that shows if the connection is good. But it depends on what the problem actualy is. It might not be in the ADSL connection to your exchange, but elsewhere in the ATM cloud.

    Er - WiMAX will definitely be a shared system AFAIK. What makes you think otherwise?

    And the very nature of the 'net implies shareing everywhere!

    sorry i should of specified a bit more lol. I was thinking that it would be possible for me to have my own ISP like people have now but with the advantage of not having to share with the likes of my landlady, IE own separate accounts . As at the mo you cant have 2 broadbands running at the samt time , or can you?

    Im presuming it will go like that, i reckon that would be a good way to go

    You can't run 2 ADSL connections over one phone line - but why not put in another line?

    you can have 2 broadband connections...one over the phone and one via cable...like where I live I have Telewest, but if I wanted I could get another one over the phoneline with BT or someone like that...but I know what ADSL over the phone line is like...so am glad to have Blueyonder (telewest) so unless u live in the Cable area...then u can only have one ADSL connection...
