Re: Fiber to the home

By getting a business line you can go for a leased line which would give you the following

Re: Fiber to the home

That very expensive but ok, so my options are to put up with my infinity 2 what is as good at 1 or pay £239 pm what I'm guessing is fiber to the house.

Or go Virgin media or satellite

Please remember to edit out your phone number before you post the results.

There may be an issue with your line or internal wiring, which is affecting your speed.

 

Which BT home hub do you have?

As Keith has said, if you can provide some stats for your line and the estimates provided by the BT Wholesale DSLChecker then the community can see if you can get some more out of your line.

 

As to the provision of a ultrafast service then there are a few options currently available from the Openreach Infrastructure.

 

BT Consumer do not currently offer any of the below suggestions (as these are likely to be provided by Business ISPs). BT Consumer do offer Native FTTP to those who are in an area that can get the service, although as you are in a FTTC area this is unlikely to be available to you.

 

1) You can get a Leased Line/Ethernet service from a Business ISP such as BT Business - https://business.bt.com/content/bt/business/en/products/broadband/bt-leased-lines.html

This is a dedicated 1:1 connection and not shared.

 

2) If FTTPoD (FTTP on Demand) is available to you, then there is at least 1 ISP at the moment that can offer you that service. Although this can occur £thousands in installation fees and a monthly service fee that may be in the £100s.

I do believe that after a period the service fee costs may go down.

 

Openreach is also investing in providing a "ultrafast" service though it's exiting FTTC infrastructure, for example the implementation of G.Fast. This is currently limited to a few places at the moment, however the rollout is aiming to make provide a ultrafast service to 10 million premises by 2020.

Re: Fiber to the home

according to the checker results you have posted no fibre services are available to you also before considering satellite I suggest you research carefully many services are usage capped and from a quick check seem to offer lower speeds then you are currently getting typically around 22Mbos down 6Mbps up
