Re: New BT 300/30 service.

I stream webcasts already, and a symmetrical 1Gbps connection would be very, very handy. At the moment, not so much of an issue, but it would be very nice to know that, in the short terms, a 1080p uncompressed signal could be watched by the viewership - and that's not going to happen without good fast fibre. It has to come - and the sooner the better.

Re: New BT 300/30 service.

are you kidding? why would you think 300mbps is 'too much' the fact that downloading megabytes still takes a while, it's important to make gigabytes download as fast as possible.

you may not be a heavy downloader but when you do download, wouldn't you want it to be instant? with 1gbps fttp we pretty much will have stuff on demand.

also i am jealous that you get 300mbps fttp lol i only get 50/18 fttc

Re: New BT 300/30 service.

I can see a very big use for 300+, not sure if we have the services quite there to use it yet but not far off!

 

Still, we are well on the way to a retail 1Gbps service, just do we have the backbone for it all yet? That I'm not so sure about.

Re: New BT 300/30 service.

BT can not supply most people with the estimated speeds that were advised on Infinity 2 so do you think that it will be any better with the new technology.

There's no copper involved, basically. It's fibre - it's pretty much an ethernet over fibre solution. It either works at full chat, or it doesn't work. Bring it on!!

What statistics do you have to prove that "most" can't get the speeds their predicted.

 

I could easily as argue that they do provide "most" with the estimated speeds.

 

Don't forget, you only see people on here who have problems. And given that BT retail now have over 600,000 customers on FTTC connections, I reckon they're not doing too bad of a job. 

 

As mentioned above, FTTP works or it doesn't...copper is the cause of 99% of problems.
