In the last few days I have experienced numerous occasion when I could not access the net. I have checked with others and Talk Talk customers have also experienced the same problems.(AOL and Talk Talk are partner companies). I talked with AOL and was informed that there were connection problems in the area in which I live. BT customers have had no problems during this period. Bearing in mind that all the connections come courtesy of BT and their landlines, how is it possible for customers with other ISPs to have such problems? Or is it part of a cunning scheme for BT to amke life difficult for other users in the hope that they will joinn BT!!!???
