Thinkbroadband Survey

Thinkbroadband, a really useful site for information on all things broadband in the UK, is undertaking a national survey to identify broadband "not spots" and "slow spots". It would be worthwhile anyone with slow speeds visiting the site here and registering your speed.

Thinkbroadband have also introduced a new tool that will be of help to anyone who wants to monitor their broadband usage.
The tbbMeter allows you to see how much your computer is sending to and receiving from the Internet in real time. It also shows you how your Internet usage varies at different times of the day. It does not record what you do on the Internet (i.e. it doesn't know what web pages you visit).

This tool will help you to manage your usage to avoid incurring excess bandwidth fees or find your broadband provider slowing you down due to exceeding your monthly usage allowance.

Having had some major problems with my own broadband service, I understand how others struggle to get help from BT.

There is a lot of good information out there, but it can be hard to find. So this blog is an attempt to pull some of it together, in one place.

It's a blog that really shouldn't be needed - if only BT and possibly other ISP's in the UK, provided useful customer support.
