Re: bt infinty is rip off

Hi ghostzz

 

As said in your previous post here (http://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Infinity/fttp-fttp-in-Edinburgh/m-p/1076720/highlight/true#M116509 ) there will probably be no improvement to the Openreach FTTC fibre infrastructure soon, though if ISPs take up the FTTPoD service and your exchange is FTTPoD enabled then you maybe able to pay for FTTP to be installed to your property. Though at the moment FTTPoD have not been taken up by any ISPs/CPs.

 

Also the upto 76mbps is an UP To figure. This will be dependent on your line quality and how long your line is between your property and your FTTC dslam cabinet.

There are also other limitation which can effect the sync and througput speed.

Re: bt infinty is rip off

BT Infinity is not just a rip off when it doesn't work, but its support overseas are incapable of dealing with customers.

 

I was told 7mbps was an acceptable speed, yet on the btwholsale speedtest it states an 'acceptable' speed was 16mbps to 78mbps. How can they advertise superfast broadband that is slower than normal ADSL and still be acceptable?

 

I've been promised calls at certain times that never happened, calls arranged at pre-arranged times only to get home from work and they tried ringing 8hrs earlier than promised. I've been lied to by the Indian call centre and they generally ignore everything you tell them.

 

Worst service ever, not one I can ever recommend to friends or family.

What are you trying to say? Neither I nor anyone else can understand this gibberish.

Re: bt infinty is rip off

Its the nature of the business that nobody can guarantee what linespeed you will get. Which is why its sold as in the case of ininity upto 76MB what would you prefer that BT banded people together like in the old days and only sold say 50MB so your line could do 60MB but you are limited to 50mb? Or someone who could get 45MB is limited to 20MB as thats the next package level down?

 

I suspect eventually most if not all of the country will have fibre into the home at which point we will hopefully get far more precise internet packages but that's gonna be many years off!

A few yes, but not as many as you may think.

Re: bt infinty is rip off

I guess the other thing is the more copper removed means a lot of cash for that scrap copper! I'd hope someone has thought of that for funding the roll out of more fibre! Additionally it would cut down on a lot of cable thefts as I've never heard of scrap fibre optic cable being worth much!
