BT Pestering!


[link to this post]
 
So, Im leaving BT for TalkTalk LLU to get 24mb ADSL.

But since then, every other day we have been getting mail and telephone calls with BT either trying to get me to join up or re-join.

Its driving me nuts!

Id stay, I really would but since BT cant give us 24mb yet its bye bye.

One woman said I could get fiber soon! Witch is nuts as we live in a small village with the exchange only serving 1.8k people.

TalkTalk ??Mb
BT 8Mb
Virgin 50Mb
BT 7Mb

Probably is nuts, but I understand that sometimes they bring fibre to a cabinet from a different exchange then the copper comes from, so might not be.

Remember the TalkTalk llu will be an 'up to' figure. Unless you are very close to that small exchange, it will be less, maybe much less.

Moved (with trepidation) to BT Infinity 2 for upload speed. Happy BE user for several years.

Tell them to remove your no. from marketing calls or you will report them to the TPS.

Even if you are an existing customer, they can only phone you about your existing product if you have opted out of marketing calls.

I would have thought that with a small exchange serving 1,800 lines FTTC was more likely the TT unbundling?

If it isnt unbundled then the ability to deliver ADSL2+ is totally dependant on BT having 21C broadband in place.

Have you confirmed that TT have unbundled the exchange?

Ex <n>ildram , been to SKY MAX - 15,225 Download
BE Unlimited - 21,000 Download 1,200 Upload ON THE LINE THAT SKY COULD ONLY PROVIDE 15,255 DOWN AND 800 UP ON!!!,
Moved house, now BE Unlimited 6,500 Down, 1Mb/s up - gutted!
FTTC Cab installation commenced 12th April - expect full 80 / 20 - bye bye BE, hello BT Infinity, install date Friday 10th August!

TT coverage for LLU is at the ~93% mark, so getting harder to find people who cannot get it.

FTTC is at the 30 to 40% range currently

Easy enough for me to do. My parents (and the other 500 houses on their exchange) can't get it.

TT's full LLU pricing is very attractive but have you also considered a reseller who can offer partial LLU?
