Problems connecting to Freeserve Anytime

  slimpickins 22:16 02 Jul 2003

Today and several times this year I have had problems connecting to Freeserve Anytime, as have many other people I know. I know it is a FA issue because I can connect to my other ISP without difficulty.

I have downloaded the Connection Pack, which doesn't help and when the problem arises sometimes find I can connect using the old FA number.

Are many other people experiencing the same thing?

I had the same trouble when I used freeserve, I think it's just a simple case of too many people using the bandwidth, or servers down.
The connection pack is more or less dialer software which dials the number for you, I doubt it will do anything to improve your manual connection.
Be cautious about using the other number you could possibly find yourself lumbered with a bill from bt.

The trouble with these questions is that you are having the same problem you're probably not online to answer.

The connection kit dials a series of numbers and is supposed to find the best to connect to, while the old ones are supposed to be being phased out. The KC also puts 1470 in front of the number which allows Freeserve to see the number you are calling from.
