So basically I checked online broadband checkers for every provider under the sun. Every single one comes back with an average speeds of 1mbps/Down including BT. However, when I change my address to the house's on either side of me they can get average of 67mpbs/Down.
After checking this(broadbandchecker.btwholesale) website, it says that my address is avaiable for 'FTTP' with 300mbps/Down and 50mbps/Up. Yet when I'm on the BT website looking for packages it tells me I can't get anything but standard broadband.
As a gamer who also would love to start twitch streaming I require a minimum of 10mbps/Up to achieve this.
Therefore, I'm wanting to know how I can have 'FTTP' installed. I'm sure you can understand how annoying it is when I currently get 1mbps/Up. I've checked the Openreach website and they have had the same message for years now, saying fibre will be coming soon(clearly not when its been years ahaha).
If any one can help with this or even send me in the right direction I would be incredibly grateful.
@SeanD (I've tagged you as I've seen previously that you've been very helpful to people)
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you logged in and checked in the My BT web pages?
What offers do you see?
From your post I assume you don't currently have a phone number and that is cause of problem. You need to place order with your selected ISP and then if available upgrade to fibre.

Some people think FTTP is available when it’s actually FTTPod shown, and that’s a different product, where the consumer pays to extend the OR FTTP network from the nearest aggregation node to their address, it can cost many thousands of ££’s and BT Consumer don’t offer that Openreach product ( so anyone considering it would have to use someone other than BT who do offer it )…..if ‘native’ OR FTTP is available then ISP’s that offer it ( BT being one ) will see the availability…the fact that ISP’s you checked with cannot see availability , suggests it’s FTTP on demand.
After further research I've seen that it is FFTP on demand and after checking the price listings I can see that its very expensive. I appreciate the help but can I also ask are you aware of any other way I can get better internet or will I just have live with the fact that 1mbps down is all I can get . It just confuses me how my neighbours can get 67mbps down and we can't. Thanks again.
Use the dslchecker link I posted earlier with your address and then post results this should show your availability
