AOL Fibre Optic Broadband


[link to this post]
 
My local exchange is just being updated to fibre optic. I pay AOL line rental and so asked if my Broadband package could be updated to allow the faster speeds. They say that they have NO plans to provide that service.
Do they want to lose customers?

It could be that aol do not want to support fttc in the uk. So you need to look else where.

As pointed out AOL is now part of talk talk so if you want fibre perhaps have a look at moving to them.

AOL don't sell fibre BB. For that you will need move to a diff ISP and it does not need to be TT.

I thought AOHell shut down years ago.

I'm stunned. I joined it when there were less than 150 members!

AOL doesn't provide services anymore in the UK. You'll basically be on TalkTalk broadband so best to approach them and they do fibre smile You cannot even order AOL broadband anymore. It's all taken over by talktalk.

Such a shame

In my view AOL was the best internet experience of my life. I wish they were still around. Even the US chat rooms and software has shut down.

They still have 2.9 Million customers in the US
