Re: BT CALL PROTECT DOES NOT WORK ON FIBRE LANDLINE

I am not suggesting for a moment that it is BT's fault that they have little or zero competition for the" Budget" FTTP market but merely making the point that customers should be aware that when deciding whether or not to have FTTP, with all it's avantages,they ought also to be aware that they will, at present at least, have little if any choice of ISP other than BT. This is not a healthy long term position, which is why Ofcom are looking at the situation.

Re: BT CALL PROTECT DOES NOT WORK ON FIBRE LANDLINE

This is a significant deviation from the topic's subject but according to Openreach there are many ISP's offering FTTP.  I don't think I will be allowed to mention them all but google it for yourself.

Re: BT CALL PROTECT DOES NOT WORK ON FIBRE LANDLINE

Of course Openreach have a list of companies who offer specialist high speed, high cost fibre connections for business users in the main and companies who offer to provide a fibre network, which are not companies who offer a service for BT FTTP customers who wish to migrate to another ISP because of dissatisfaction on price or service. At one time they could migrate back to copper but post the Salisbury trial, government has rightly agreed to allow copper service to be withdrawn where there is a widespread fibre offer. Even Plusnet another BT ISP does not offer a simple migration service which means a normal market does not exist.
