Fasthosts customers blindsided by emergency password reset

Christian Royle

73% of accounts affected.

I was told by FH SUpport that 73% of customers had not changed their control panel passwords, and if the CP password had not been changed, then everything in that account was included in last nights reset.

I guess this means that if you were putting your customers passwords at a higher priority than your own, then you were punished by the blanket change.

Another ISP throttles bandwidth

Christian Royle

Have your say - sign this petition

A Dundee engineer has launched an e-petition on the Prime Minister's website to campaign against slumping broadband speeds. 32-year-old Lee Sexton claims ISPs are 'clearly throttling speeds' at peak times to reduce network congestion. Several ISPs, such as Virgin Media, have implemented so-called traffic shaping policies where subscribers who exceed a daily download limit have their download speeds cut in half.
