      Anyone else tracert 2nd hop failing & no longer on MER..?

      I have noticed that when doing a tracert the 2nd hop (which is the ISAM at the exchange) always 'times-out' now - someone else on sky has confirmed this, this same person has also noticed (same as me) that we are no longer connected via MER and are now connected via PPPoA , he says that its speculation that sky now reserve MER for FTTC ? - I wonder if others on here have any issues with tracert 2nd hop, and if so; have they too been moved to PPPoA from MER.

      thanks
