  1. Doesn't seem to be the SHEFA cable. I can ping London in 24 ms on it.
  2. Looks like problem is with a BT cable on Scottish Mainland. Seems all of TT is affected. Whilst some of BT is, mainly, if not exclusively, on Lerwick exchange. Faults on other exchange areas may just be co-incidental, as they seem to be largely unaffected. Being a South Bank Holiday weekend, only the skeletons are working and getting answers is difficult.
  3. Well, that's great for them, but I was talking in terms of web access quality Shetland-wide. As JustMe has put it so much more eloquently than I could, Shetland Telecom is only a small niche in the overall market, and by definition only a minority of their customers are likely to be using their internet service during the worst affected 10 hour daily period. The unfortunate thing with Shetland Telecom (as I understand it) is that your averge joe is not really in a position to realistically aspire (especially financially) to being able to access the service anytime soon. Frankly, while Shet
  4. You are on the wind up, right.....?!? I will admit taht I don;t know the financials of the deal, it could be that TalkTalk is more expensive that BT, but the service is better or any number of reaons... PO did not operate their network and still don't so I am guessing that less cost was the attraction to migrate thousands of customers from one network to another? Any chance of that in English? Who is providing the better service, BT or Talktalk? A quick Google reveals:- http://www.information-age.com/technology/mobile-and-networking/2105193/post-office-drops-bt-as-phone-and-broadban

  6. Post Office use Talk Talk - much cheapness .....
  7. Hi hairyian, I am aware of this. Am waiting on a reply back from them as I type. Just pointing out that that was the info from the BT / Plusnet outage sites as TalkTalk's one is not much better than "Yeah, it's broken". As there is at least 3 ISPs having faults, it is possibly a fault between the exchange and the mainland. (Surely not the fibre cable been cut again?) Actually it has. It would seem that TT still don't see any need to purchase capacity on the backup cable. I am not aware of any other service provider affected to the point of no service by the cable fault.
  8. Not just you petergair. No phone or broadband with talktalk since Saturday Morning. EE mobile internet still going strong though. Talktalk speed has decreased for me recently from 13-15 mbps to 8 mbps this last week or so. Hopefully thus will go back up when it is fixed. Reports from the BT and Plusnet sites guestimate the 09/01 and 04/01 repair dates respectively. ??? This is TalkTalk in Lerwick ? In which case BT does not touch their kit, only the physical line from exchange to you. You need to contact TalkTalk to report a fault.
  9. The Papa Stour Airstrip must be one of the least used in Shetland - why are we spending tax payers ,money on it when it is not needed ? The ferry appears to be tied up most of the week as well ... sure it could be better used elsewhere. Therby saving even more tax payers money ...
  10. Listening to the parties on Radio Shetland ... A error has occurred and it has been acknowlwdged, hence more time given. Would you rather the proceedings continued with the known error ? Thereby leaving the door open to a Legal Challenge ?
  11. Great start ! What else is in your Election Manifesto ?
  12. Have to hope so. It is surely the only thing holding the road together.
  13. I know what falls within the Act, which is why I asked how it applied in this sitiation ?
