as bt openreach seem loath to do a proper roll-out maybe its time to change their universal service obligation to have a minimum internet speed that increases every x years

It was quite interesting to see that Ofcom today claimed that the average UK broadband speed was 9Mbit.

Well I have been in an area today with an average 3Mb broadband.... On 3G.. over a wide 5mile radius in very bad terrain.

If you are getting slow speeds start with fitting a high quality face plate filter like adslnations and place router at master. My parents get a stable 10mb in this setup.

My connection was down for more than 6 hours yesterday. Same happened about 2 weeks ago. When an engineer called he said that a component in one of the boxes [In his words: "one of the green boxes"] on the street had blown in the heat of the day. Same again yesterday?
[Did anyone else have problems with their Virgin broadband yesterday from 2:00 pm until 8:00 or 9:00 pm?]

If green box equipment is blowing due to heat then something is very wrong with the equipment or the cabinet ventilation.

I got one of the OpenReach versions of the BT iPlate a couple of years ago when an Engineer had to come out and reterminate the pole. The retermination and Plate helped up my connection by about 1Mb.

With an iPlate, decent microfilters, rewiring/re-termination of internal extensions and careful setup of my ADSL modem I managed to up my (shocking) less than 1mb connection to 2.3mb stable.

I was told not so long ago that BT are starting to put fan's into the top of the green boxes to stop this heat problem...

All the active cabinets should already be fan cooled.

Virgin Media - although doesn't really mean much as youtube is forever buffering and we don't have love film or netflix streaming anymore and don't download much other than streaming stuff from youtube.
