Why am I connected to NTL infrastructure?

Hi, sorry if the answer is out there already, can't find it.

 

Have just noticed that when I hovwer over my internet connection icon on windows it tells me I'm connected to NTL infrastructure in Luton.  I'm in west Yorkshire and if I recall correctly I always used to just be connected to "Virgin Media"

Is this something I need to pursue and clarify or is it merely a hangover from old hardware names?

Thanks

Yes - it's a hangover from old infrastructure naming. Also, the location name comes from a registration lodged for the IP address range and is not assured to be geographic.

HTH.

Hi Sephiroth

You have answered my previous query with your reply above. This is what was happening for me. Do you know why it has happened and why it overrides my normal Superhub connections ?

Thanks

I don't understand the question you're putting.

First, though, to put your mind at rest, what's shown in the IP address range location is irrelevant to everything.  VM move IP address ranges rounbd their estate as they do resegmentations and so on in one area, the could transfer the IP address range to another.

Second, your connection is physical - the the local VM Hub site.  Then it goes onto the VM backbone to route weherever you need it too.  So your normal Superhub connection is the physical link to the VM hub site.

Does that answer everything for you?

Thanks. Sorry to have bothered you. Unfortunately I'm not as pc savvy as you appear to be.
