Re: 6G anyone?

From this page  (dated NOVEMBER 13 2013 )

http://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2013/11/marketing-fun-6g-broadband-network-goes-live-blackburn-...

read it all...or scroll down to read this quote...

Quote

Funnily enough, and somewhat despite the bold headline speed claims of 300Mbps, the actual packages on offer are rather less impressive (note: these are for now only shown on their blog page).
The most expensive Option 2 package offers 20Mbps broadband speeds for £43.48 per month with free evening/weekend calls on a 24 month contract (plus £49 installation).
It’s also suggested that the price could rise after the first 18-24 months when various line rental and calling discounts come to an end.
Yes, line rental, on a wireless link.

UPDATE 9th December 2013
It’s been noted by several of our readers that 6G Internet appears to share the same address as Time Computers (Time Group UK and Time Group AE) and now Supanet, which is an ISP that we no longer list due to a history of questionable business practices / service quality and the fact that they don’t meet our basic listing criteria.
As well as coming under the same group the FWA system being used appears to make use of Ubiquiti Networks point-to-point and point-to-multi-point gear on 2.4GHz and 5GHz, which is a similar setup to Metronet UK’s hybrid fibre optic and wireless broadband network.
Caution is advisable.

Re: 6G anyone?

back in 2002 when I lived in Bergan (hohne) we had wireless internet which in low usage periods was up to 54mbps up/down but would crash to 10 up/down (used 2 wifi dongles) when everyone was online, it was a fantastic and cheap (€10/mth unlimited) option if you didn't want to be tied to the then phone line option, the best of which was a bundled 8 line dsl system offering the same 54mbps speed (but with 8x line rental and 8 x internet fee it cost about €200/mth unlimited) we stuck to mobiles and used the wireless system, the biggest problem thouh was if someone signed in with a 802.11b device it changed the multipoint repeater over from 802.11g broadcast to the much lower 11mbps max b speed and would then crash the entire wireless network down to sub 1mbps link speeds as it shared that 11mbps across the 20+ people .......

offering a wifi based multi point system in this fashion will be exactly the same with this bunch of cowboys unless they provide a proprietary dongle as part of their product offering, which there not doing ......
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

Hmmm... think I'll pass then. Saw their forum and they had mixed reviews ( much like PN), the high speeds intrigued me. Thanks. Smiley

Re: 6G anyone?

Did you tell them to tick / untick the (DO NOT CALL) box accordingly
As failure to do so after you have mentioned it to the, means you got them by the proverbials
Furthermore did they provide an option to tick / untick (DO NOT CALL / CONTACT)  accordingly
Or any disclaimer that they will use your data ??

"The result is faster, more secure and direct."  i'd challenge them on that sentence alone.  anything travelling through the air can be picked off more easily than from wired connections.
