Interactive Brokers (IB) Rubbish FTSE100 Data Feed

Z index FTSE100
Does anybody else have problems with IB's real-time FTSE100 feed Z ?

For about a month now, this real time feed has been rubbish.
It doesn't appear at all in a TWS window which shows a "Close" all day long and doesn't agree with numbers from elsewhere.
The historic data (Z - 1 min) pumps put some data on connection but doesn't tick at all for hours.

I've used this primary underlying data as the senior UK index for years and it has been solid.
They have been told but no fix after 2 weeks. I'm rather rattled.

Am I missing a trick here?

Are you having problems getting prices for the ftse future from Liffe/ICE Europe or the ftse index?

No only the cash - have used it for years but it seems IB can't afford to pay what
Ftse International want to charge. See this info

I'd be interested to know precisely which day they switched it off and can't think why they didn't just switch it off completely instead of allowing a meaningless stream.
They ought to run a synthetic stream which they calculate from LSE prices and constituents like mytrack.com does (ticker UKX).

Data from ICEEU (Liffe) is fine - again a lot more expensive than it used to be under Liffe.
Anyone would think they want to get rid of all the small players and create a cosy club.

animal... not only IB but Prorealtime have stopped FTSE100 eod because of cost. One has to wonder what is it with these data providers that turns off the normal guy in the street?
