wannadoo Broadband

  ened 16:42 01 Jun 2004

Has anybody else noticed that after being on line for some time the ability to send and receive info. suddenly ceases, until you disconnect and reconnect.
I am meant to be on unlimited access and am curious to know if I have a problem or if it is their way of telling me I have used enough.

I think over the last few days they have had problems at Wanadoo. Have been with Freeserve for about 7 years and never had a problem. However ,the last few days I either have not been able to connect or have been kicked off after about 10 mins. I have friends who are with them and they cannot send e.mails but can recieve them??? In august my area is being broadband enabled (thought hell would freeze over first) and I have decided to change isp tp Pipex as I have heard a lot of good things about them. Perhaps Freeserve is going down the pan since Wanadoo took over.

On Wannado 2G limited BB, had no probs here in East Mids sinc e been on last 3 weeks, Although I don't really use the W channels.

Is this problem with any IE downloading or just certain sites?

Old Shep because I used to have a load of similar problems when I was a Freeserve dial-up customer and they would never admit they were at fault.
I have heard Pipex are good for BB but am committed to Freeserve for 12 months.
Does anybody know if they can 'hang'your Broadband connection without disconnecting you?
I had left it on since about 14:00 and returned at 16:00 to find that OE was shoing error messages and no pages were available in IE. As soon as I disconnected and connected again I was live and have been ever since.
This is not the first time!!!

I was typing at the same time.
Basically all sites were unavailable and Outlook Express could not retrieve mail.
