    BT users in UK beware -- IPV6 addresses being tested


    Hi there.

    knowing how bad large corporations are in testing and roiling out software - especially with the amount of Offshoring and lack of QC done "in the name of Cost reductions" I expect to see these Forums being filled with howls of anguish from BT users when they find they can't access some sites (or possibly any) soon.

    If they are anything like the Banks --woe betide any users of BT braodband !!!!

    BT runs trial of IPv6 addressing system - BBC News

    It wont make any difference, all that will happen is IPv4's will be resolved through some sort if IPv4 tunnel or gateway.

    Hi there

    sounds OK but my experience with BT isn't the best -- I switched to SKY while in the UK -- never had any problem with it and it's cheap.

    I agree though this sort of stuff should have been tested ages ago rather than being forced to roll it out because the addresses are all used up.

    Cheers

    BT customer service is almost the worst, but that falls to Sky who couldn't even get my broadband on the correct phone line despite many assurances and hours on the phone line

    Hi there

    I think they are ALL bad as far as customer service is concerned -- I have some colleagues who have Virgin Media and you wouldn't want to hear what they think of customer service either.

    I just chose who gave me the best deal --fortunately no probs with connections etc -- just the annoying part in UK of being blocked from various "sites" - but easy enough to get around.

    The best customer service appears to be from smaller operators -- energy providers -- for example.
    I use OVO for example but they aren't always available in some areas. Same with broadband. I hear Talk-Talk *might be* reasonable but they aren't available where I am.

    Cheers
