    BT Openworld

    Do any of you in the UK have BT Openworld?? Absolutely amazing how a household name can cock up internet service providing so much....

    I always have to spend fifteen minutes trying to connect, and then im chucked off without fail about two or three times a day...

    As we pay fifteen quid a month for the service, i want something that actually works,

    Are any of you unfortunate enough to use BT? Do u get the same problems?? :!(

    Broadband's about 25 with NTL (600kbs).

    At the moment, there's a seemingly permanent mail server problem. I usually get about 80 emails a day (around 30 cricket, 30 Derby County, the rest spam and the occasional message from a friend (yeah, I've got one or two).

    Today, I've had 3 (and one of those was from 4 days ago - worse than Royal Mail). Amazingly enough, no problem with internet, MSN and the like (my only problem with MSN is the fact that I usually forget to sign in after 'appearing offline' or 'busy' for a few days)

    When I went to broadband, the difference was utterly stagggering. Now, I can never go back to dial-up.

    Same here Ed, I've been on it about a year now, and it is so much better than dial up it's untrue.

    It's a bit hard to get broadband when you live in the middle of nowhere 7 miles out of town...

    I know.

    We had cable installed in the village many years ago (by Diamond Cable). They said at the time "We'll hook you all up in 6 months - when we've done all the connection testing and that rubbish".

    Well, NTL bought them out - and forgot about us. 2 years later, I contacted them and said "We'd like to hook up" - they said "It's not installed in Castle Donington". They had no idea the cables had even been laid.

    Eventually, the penny dropped.
