While my speed is greatly improved from ADSL I'm happy even though its not as stable and keeps getting lower, started at a solid 78Mbps and 3 months in down to 54mbs but when will we see a mass rollout of FTTH. I can't see this happeningr many many years......I'd do it myself with a bit of training as I'm not that far from the cabinet.
This is were I really envy projecst liek B4RN they seem to be doig a great job.
Maybe when the number of people who really need super speeds exceeds the number who can't get a decent broadband service at all.
If BT are serious about delivering tv content via the net, they need to offer FTTP \H. Families nowadays use the net for lots of things so the demand for bandwidth and maintaining speed grows exponentially.
Despite Infinity, many people myself included experience bufferring when viewing YT's or programme content over the net.
Myself, I'll never personally rely on tv over the net until BT or another supplier provides FTTP\H at reasonable cost.
IMHO, BT will not see the demand for their tv service grow until people are assured of bufferring free viewing.
FTTH won't necessarily speed things up. A lot of websites can't keep up with demand now. Remember your connection speed is fundamentally dependent on the slowest link in the chain.
