The clocks going back an hour question

With the clocks going back an hour Sunday morning (Fall Back), is the extra hour immediately in effect at 2am, ie can we surf unlimited for the extra hour till the new 8am on Sunday ?

That's a good idea.

PN Speedtest also gives a time, not sure if it's linked to PN time.

Looks like the government is having another look at permanently changing to BST. Amendments are to be made to the Bill before Parliament at present.

And the Scots Nats say they are going to block it - I think we should ignore them and make the change for England and Wales (assuming the Welsh Parliament agrees)

Re: The clocks going back an hour question

I have to agree with you Jim.  The Scots have always opposed this change and we should ignore them.

Re: The clocks going back an hour question

As a more general point - from previous experience - forum time is totally unrelated to Plusnet monitoring times.
It rather depends on how and when the various time servers change as I don't think they are linked

I remember the last time they experimented with this nonsense, around 1968-1971, and it was still dark at 10am up here.
