Still waiting to hear more on the SOGEA. Fed up of paying for a land line I neither need nor use...

As they've release the Hub One that's not relevant?

OK, *maybe* I shouldn't have just resurrected this post out of the blue. But I got excited Wink

Not much sign of SoGEA yet but then I never was very excited by it. If it frees up the voice frequencies it won't make much difference to most connections and the price difference will only be a couple of quid.

Self Service DLM Control is going to be interesting, but I guess the 'self' is going to be the ISP not the End User.

Self-service DLM has nothing to do with FTTC though...

Re: Interesting developments from BT

More recently two Technicolor 589 models did get a conditional pass.
SOGEA sounds a long way off, but there is now STIN 517 on http://www.btplc.com/sinet/

Re: Interesting developments from BT

Given that it's SoGEA it presumably needs to be supported by BTw before most ISPs can offer it.
