    Hi,
    One of the sites I administer uses Eclipse as their ISP. Due to the location from the exchange, the maximum downstream they can get is around 2MBps, it can be extremely intermittent at times, and often displays a BT Wholesale Page BT Home - your gateway into BT

    Is there something else we can get in place which would be more reliable? SDSL? Leased Line?

    I have tried the usual things:

    • Reset back to Factory
    • New Router
    • New Filter
    • New Cables

    Wait until they (BT) upgrades the exchange or see if they (the site) is in a Virgin area.

    A leased line would be great in terms of reliability but with a price to match but it really depends on how critical the service is and the associated cost of the outages.

    I have not had any experience with it but satalite broadband might be an option possibly?

    I looked into Satellite broadband a couple of years for a remote site. The things to check are; what the upload speed is(is it sufficient for your needs), and the fair usage policy on how much data you can transfer.

    Another option could be bonded DSL. I suppose it comes down to the amount you have to spend or not:D

    I mentioned it because it only seemed to be the downrate that mattered in the OP, and also my In-laws live in the middle of nowhere and they can only get sub-1mb max from their broadband and they could get satBB with 4mb down for roughly the same price. Still if its the same as my sky telly as soon as there is a sniff of snow or storms I get the dreaded "there is a tech fault with this channel" and I have to hunt round for a coax cable :)

    Yep. Same problem here, and the fact that there is never anything decent on to watch:D

    LOL:D
    The missus is constantly playing the Xbox, so I end up watching her play a game instead of the TV.
    Since Christmas she has played Assassins Creed:Brotherhood, Skyrim and now she has just started Kingdoms of Amalur:rolleyes:

    I suppose it's my own fault for buying them for her!
