UK.gov threatens to 'pull plug' on smart meter rollout

Hacked

Surely the main reason this project should never happen is that it will be a field day for hackers. How long until the security is bypassed, weeks, days, hours?

Bank emails punters asking for their, er, email address

WTF?

Security Detail

"Cahoot, like all other banks, would never send a customer an email asking them to enter, reconfirm or change their security details such as account numbers"

Is account number a security detail?

Since when has anyone ever asked, needed or been able to change account numbers?

Thanks to a poster on the previous Superhub article and the phonecall from the installer to the VM helpline this fixed ALL my connection issues in Southampton.

Packet loss went from 85% to 0% and a rock solid 20Mbps connection.

@kwikbreaks

Thanks @kwikbreaks oh I wished I checked back here before the engineer arrived this morning, scratched his head for an hour before calling their own tech support only to end up switching off Flood Detection!

Docsis Upgrade

I recently had terrible connection problems. An engineer visited and switched me to the new cable modem/router which I assume is the Docsis 3 one. I now have rock solid 20Mb download and 2Mb upload speeds but having major issues with packet loss running a pingtest. It's currently losing between 30% and 90% of all packets. Engineer is booked to visit Friday morning, fingers crossed.
