In order to address some of the issues seen recently with an imbalance on our Central Pipes, we are making improvements to the method of distributing users between LNS equipment. These changes will enable us to better balance the pipes through the day to day re-connections that take place, which in turn will lead to an improved customer experience for all users. One of the disadvantages of such as system however, is that it removes the ability for end users to be able to see which Central Pipe they are currently connected to, as specific LNS equipment cannot be tied to an individual central.
Whilst it has been a difficult decision to make, we have decided to make these changes as the loss of information would have happened on the switch to the upcoming IPStream Connect product, which is expected for Q1 of 2009. These changes have been introduced to a small number of devices and will continue to be rolled out in the coming days.
