Hmmm. Another improvement that they are introducing is a change of evening time from April 1st. From then on, free calls will start at 7pm and finish 7am. wonder how many people they will catch between 6 and 7 pm. at least until the next bills come out.
Well today is the day :) I wonder if it was done early morning as the HomeHub showed only connected for 5 hours... making it reset at around 3am.
Have run Speedtest.net a couple of times, early morning and noon and find download slightly worse today (if work has been done... which I don't know for sure) at 6.32mbs, upload unchanged at 0.36mbs and ping is better at 0.42 ms

No biggie, I am not a big downloader"
When I first got BB, the phone line hadn't been touched in 50 years I guess, and the speeds were around 0.1mbs... and yet for "ordinary" web use it wasn't a problem. In the evenings it went to around 0.05mbs... and then you did notice.
Got on to BT and that was soon sorted... I read somewhere that it takes several weeks from first having BB on a line, for BT to make sure the physical integrity of that line is OK... connections up poles, box on street corners etc.
Don't know how true that is. Anyway speeds have been on the up ever since.
Hi mooly, BT say about 10 days before speeds are optimised,but I am on 8mb, and I get an average of 6.3mb (the village exchange is only about 200 yards away) I have to say I got that speed from day 1, but it may be because I am so close to the exchange.
