It probably is the 'Nest heating controller' .......... had just the one personally, that gave off interference causing the router to drop synch, but other engineers may have also witnessed similar.

Failing that, it could simply be a mis-type (predictive text), as we pick up and close our jobs on our I-Phones .... damned hard to write a perfectly spelt report !!!

I've got a Nest at home, I haven't really noticed it causing any issues tbh.

I think the controller has its own wireless protocol to communicate with other Nest devices but it also connects to your wireless network as a normal LAN device.

We really like it, its much smarter than a "traditional" timer / temperature based thermostat.

:no: :no:

Haha, yeah I agree :P.

I also have a Nest thermostat and have had no noticeable issues with it causing interference with VDSL2.

The nest thermostat communicates wired or wirelessly with the heat-link that controls the boiler, so I guess the heat-link is probably responsible for any noise that may disrupt vdsl
