Currently we have FTTP with a 50mbps avg speed, installed in 2016. We have reached the end of our honeymoon period and the price has now increased beyond our budget. Having discussed our options with BT, i wanted to look around and see what other service providers could offer.
None of the other providers i have contacted can 'see' our FTTP line and are adamant that the best speed we can receive is 2mbps (the old copper line speed).
Why is this? is there a blocker on the line to stop other service providers? if so, how do we go about getting it removed? i have contacted Openreach directly but a bit of advice on how to go about this would be greatly appreciated,
Solved! Go to Solution.
A lot of the major ISPs don't actually offer widely available mainstream FTTP products which is why they only offer the slow copper service and not even FTTC . You will need to google FTTP suppliers to find out who can provide it in your area which should throw up a few of the smaller outfits.
Thank you all for your prompt responses! Looks like a bit of a pain (at least until Sky join the party) but at least that explains why i cant get any sense from other providers.
