Unwise to run ADSL broadband from a hunting digital line?
Posted on 2010-08-30
An office has always had intermittent broadband sometimes no service for days for a vast variety of wierd and some times un explainable reasons.
I hooked up a phone to their broadband line and dialled my mobile, it test fine.
I then dialled back the number and to my astonishment their phone lines rang. They have to dial 9 for an outside line. They have two lines (hunting)
Ive never seen this before.
They are going to swap ISP but the broadband number will remain the same as the new ISP said the fax line can only get 1 meg max. (broadband was never connected to the fax line but my thinking is that’s the best option) The fax line is my preference as that the way everyone dopes it I thought.
So is it really unwise (unconventional) to run ADSL broadband from a hunting digital line?
Also – Will four pcs run on a 1 meg line. It’s a standard office, no big documents being received/delivered.
