Anybody else affected by this?

I had no connection for all of the evening, but guessed it might be something fairly widespread as the BT Helpline was solidly engaged for about six hours!

Maybe that was 'switches'?

No it's not - genuine debate has never and will never be stifled in this forum.

What will be stifled is the little culture of personal abuse that has grown up of late - indulged in by a few regular contributors who think it's clever to use pretty well every thread to mount nasty little attacks on others.

It's happened before, many times, and it was stopped. It will be stopped this time,too,and it's something that isn't up for further discussion.

Please accept my apologies.

I misread your post and did not appreciate you were using your own website figures to support the FE's.

FE - my apologies for starting this hornet's nest.

It was meant to be a bit of fun with an old adversary.

Many thanks for that explanation.

As far as I'm concerned it's in the past.Let's forget about it.

The reports in the press quote BT as saying 20000 homes were involved in 4 or more large city`s, I would bet the real number could be 10 or even up to 50 times that number

Report in the Aberdeen Press & Journal newspaper today say BT now put the number of affected homes at one million plus
