Exactly, why is our govenment giving them £100K to string a couple of modems together.

I had a Motorola Surfboard SB3100 which I had to buy myself (This was in the early days).
When they upgraded the speeds above 10Mbs and the SB3100 couldn't obtain the new speeds (The ethernet was only 10Mbs), they sent me a free modem and wireless router.
Over the years, I have had only a few hours of downtime overall, but I must admit I don't use their DNS.

Been there got the tea shirt, this is normaly caused by letting the sales/marketing department, buy their own kit.
Just because it might look cool to the customer (Never mind, they stop working when the batteries go flat, and the cost of changing batterys etc).
The biggest probelm is, they just have no understanding of the technology (Despite the fact they sell technology).
It is RF FFS, they can't just plug it in, they need to configure it, i.e :-
Change every set, to run on different frequency, so they don't interfere we each other.
The first call I heard about, was from the sales boss, who claimed something had infected his machine.
As he tried to edit a spreadsheet, something was changing the numbers !!!!
