About kitz.co.uk info

kitz.co.uk is one of the UK's largest DSL broadband resource & information sites.

This site contains a wealth of information such as how ADSL & VDSL (fibre) broadband works.
There's tips on choosing an ISP, help comparing ISP prices and ISP performance.

A large section of the site is devoted to self help diagnostics and what to do if you run into problems with your broadband connection, such as how to get dsl line stats from your router to understanding how such things as SNR and attenuation can affect your connection. There's also a vast array of tutorials and FAQs about broadband.

It is independently run and a not for profit site.  Unlike some broadband sites, we do not focus only on ISPs which pay commission. Although the site is well known and respected within the ISP industry, our position means that we are free to tell you 'as it is' and allows us to carry information on far more ISPs than most other broadband comparison sites.

If you have a broadband problem and need some help - or just want to say hello - our community forum is frequented by many knowledgeable people, who may be able to assist you. We are a family friendly oriented site so please feel free to join us.

The site is continually expanding, with new pages being added or amended. New pages are normally announced on the Forum.

xx Poll - Broadband, xDSL or DSL

July 29, 2015, 01:47:45 AM by kitz
I'd appreciate your thoughts and feedback on the terms "Broadband", "xDSL" & "DSL" please.

Most of us on here are aware that the correct term is xDSL, but when it comes to the General Public and search engines then 'Broadband' appears to be the most popular terms.
Unfortunately the vast majority of people don't have a clue what xDSL means and give a blank look if you say 'DSL'.  So what do you think would be best for the site for renaming of the historic ADSL section?

When it comes to the header pages Ive already started to rename and change ADSL to 'DSL Broadband' to cover both terms, but space in the top menu tab is limited.

xx Main site changes.

July 26, 2015, 08:06:57 AM by kitz
I've been making some changes to the main site - mainly:

1) Tutorial and Tech sections have been merged.
2) The cookie compliance notification has been replaced.  The old one relied heavily on a third party geolocation plug-in script that was at times causing pages to load slower than they should.

Please be aware that there may be some strange caching issues.

xx Forum Shuffle

I'm in the process of shuffling around some of the forums posts - in particular those in the Site Announcements and Discussion sections.   
The reasons for this should hopefully become clearer at a later date :)
