Just been reading the FAQs about the new service and this one could be really annoying to say the least.


Q. Why does my broadband connection sometimes appear intermittent, usually accompanied by a flashing light on my modem or router?
A. This is most likely to be the broadband service automatically adjusting your line speed in order to maintain the fastest possible stable connection (a process known as 're-synching'). Re-synchs are usually triggered by electrical interference affecting your phone line. The re-synch process requires the broadband signal to be dropped for 20-60 seconds while a new stable speed is identified. If you have a router or hub, your broadband service should then re-connect automatically; while if you have a modem, you will usually see a prompt on your computer screen asking you to re-connect manually.

Some interesting reading for anyone considering upgrading. Particularly how your existing equipment may need replacing, so extra costs involved.

I was Max DSL'd yesterday so am in the 10 day training period. Just have to wait and see what speed I end up with...

Thats where I saw it.Had to put my name down on a waiting list but should get it by 11th of this month.You get the modem/router free if you order online and you also get Broadband Talk free with the package.
