Re: Fiber installed to exchange without cabinet?

We can get LTE in some places but it can be unreliable at times.

Best speed I've managed to get is roughly 45Mbps and that was a long time ago.  It was giving 5 megabytes per second at one stage, but that was with EE and it has worsened over time.  Now it's barely 1 Megabyte per second and drops frequently now.

 

I ported my main number over to BT and found the signal is somewhat less.  I guess they have a smaller slice of the band.

But I wanted to benefit from the 4GB per month as it helps regarding how pathetic our main broadband is.

 

Now it feels as though the mobile signal is joining it for some reason.

 

I swear I live in a black hole lol

Re: Fiber installed to exchange without cabinet?

Have you considered getting a data plan? I think EE do a 50GB plan for probably not a whole lot more than you're paying for line rental plus broadband, and if you use an outside antennea or a 4G router with with external aerials you might be able to get a decent signal?

Just as a stop gap until faster services are available?

Also take a look here https://www.scotlandsuperfast.com/where-when/the-programme/alternative-solutions/

Specifically the bit at the bottom about the better broadband subsidy scheme.

Re: Fiber installed to exchange without cabinet?

I have looked into dropping the broadband and getting something like an Osprey.  Pricewise it would be maybe a little more, but the signal has become unreliable now.

I also require the phoneline so will still have to pay for line rental and have numerous email addresses that I need to hold onto, so I'll need to pay to hold on to that, too.

 

Even now I am having issues trying to activate an offer from EE giving me 5 days unlimited everything for £5 and that expires at midnight tonight.  Looks like I'm going to miss out on that due to technical issues with EE.

 

I have looked into the Better Broadband scheme but keep getting told that I am not eligible since I am getting "super fast broadband" in less than 6 months.  They keep moving the date that we are supposed to be getting fibre so it keeps making me uneligible.  Been quite a few years that that has been happening.

Re: Fiber installed to exchange without cabinet?

As it stands there doesn't seem to be any plans to provide you with superfast broadband in the next 12 months, so you should be eligible for the voucher.
