I have visited other ISP websites, input my postcode and they all say I can only have conventional broadband, but if I go to the BT site it says I can have Infinity installed with upto 50mb speeds.
I was under the impression that all phone-line based ISPs should be able to provide the same services...given that its Openreach who ultimately provide the infrastructure.
can anyone shed any light on why BT are the only company offering Fiber in my postcode?
there are other isp's that resell bt fttc products uno broadband are one such company
When you contacted the other ISP`s they might have got confused because you asked if you could have a fibre to your home connection [FTTP/H].
Try recontacting them and ask if they can supply you with a FTTC service,as that is the one that uses your normal phone line from a cabinet.
The FTTC service is fibre to the cabinet,then normal phone line [copper] to your home.
They answered your request:
" Speaking as a consumer looking for the fastest possible internet, I spoke to a number of ISPs who told me that fiber to my address was 'not possible'"
But they might have thought that you wanted fibre all the way to your address.?
