PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT!

STAY AWAY FOR O2 DSL SERVICES AND THEIR O2 HOMEBOX!!

Why you ask…. Well the O2 HomeBox 6641 currently has a firmware bug which prevents iMessage, FaceTime, WhatsApp Audio chat on iPhones from working at all!!

On top of that iPhones have connection issues and video and audio streams stutter and stop (BBC live radio etc.)

This ‘problem’ has been know since at least November of last year but as of February 2016 it still has not been fixed!

As usual calling the support line is of no help since they seems to have been instructed to blame Apple and the iPhone even though these issues ARE ONLY PRESENT WHEN USING THE O2 HOMEBOX! Twitter support was bit more helpful but not by much… basically I was offered a working Fritzbox for the same amount (approximately 40 euros with shipping) that I paid less than a month ago for the broken O2 Homebox. SO MY SUGGESTION TO YOU IS STAY AWAY FROM O2!

Or if you for some reason have to use them (not that I can think of one) get a Fritzbox because currently their O2 HomeBox 6641 does NOT WORK PROPERLY and so far no one at O2 has been able to tell when this will be fixed…

Also note that O2 DSL now a wonderful new featured call ‘Fair-Use-Mechanik’ which basically drastically reduces your online speed if you go over your allotted quota for 3 months…

SO O2 IS NOT OFFERING DSL FLAT RATES…  PLEASE BE SMARTER THEN ME AND GET YOUR DSL ELSEWHERE!
