Which FTTC ISP?


[link to this post]
 
Hi all

FTTC is coming to my exchange (WMHAS) in the next couple of weeks. I have decided to go with a FTCC service due to my distance from the exchange (I only currently get around 2Mb on O2 LLU).

Which ISPs are currently offering FTTC products? Should I go with BT Infinity, or is there a better option?

Any advice much appreciated.

The answer depends on your requirements and budget.

Robertos site has a good list of ISPs that are offering FTTC products.

well if you ask me m8 infinity is a no brainer atm its the cheapest in that list with unlimited usage ( well 300gb fup ) to get anywhere near that usage you would be paying several hundred pounds, but if your estimated speed is under 15 mb then you wont get infinity so will have to go with a more expensive option.

It depends on what he wants to use it for.

BY Infinity might be the cheapest but i'm not going with them. If i'm getting 40mb speeds, i want to be able to use that speed whenever and however i choose. I don't want to be told when and when not i can download, use p2p, usenet.

Do they have any restrictions on usenet?

I don't know the details but as far as i'm aware they throttle traffic through nntp port i.e. usenet.

But don't hold me to that.

infinity is a no brainer


static IP ? IPv6 support ?
