Advice on FTTC Providers


[link to this post]
 
My Cab on the Haslington Exchange is due to go live on 10th March. im Currently With Sky unlimited and they have been fantastic im currently getting 4.5mb on an old style cab.

Im Currently looking at BT but i know there FUP is extreme my question is im a big downloader on P2P sites/programs now i can except that this would be done off peak but does the FUP still effect through put ? or does it reach its full potential also what speeds to BT limit the P2P in peak hours? becuase if its around 4.mb im not going to be any worse off !

any advice on this or other FTTC providers (with Good Packages Welcome)

Many Thanks in Advnace for any replys

Unreservedly recomment ADSL24, I'm on their 45GB pro package. No shaping or throttling, unlimited is just that.

P2P traffic is throttled by BT at all times.. How much, I have no idea as I am not with BT. Go over the FUP and you are limited to 2Mb for the next 30 days.

Have a look at Robertos site, which has details on FTTC providers and their offerings..

Ah! Um!

Currently all Openreach FTTC, (which is what we are talking about, the other FTTC being Virgin Media cable), is installed by Openreach.

They fit a new filtered faceplate to your master socket and supply a VDSL2 modem.

BT Infinity supplies a "cable" router (a special version of the Home Hub) to connect to the modem. With others ISPs such as ADSL24 either you buy a cable router from them or elsewhere. I have a Buffalo WHR-G300Nv2.

Openreach rules are that you must use their supplied modem. Replacing it with a VDSL2 router such as the one you quote is not allowed.

Having said that, have a good read of this thread. IIRC the 789 is featured.

It seems so, yes. But the point is you aren't allowed to use it on FTTC.

Read that thread I linked you to. The OP bought one.

does not say anything on adsl 24

Your existing ADSL or ADSL2+ router will not work with Fibre Broadband due to the new technology, so you will require a standard (non-ADSL) router (also known to as a 'Cable router') which you can then plug the provided VDSL2 modem into and share the connection on your network.

Does not say anything about what?

It says exactly what I did about a VDSL2 modem is supplied. So perhaps you mean it doesn't say you must not replace the Openreach modem.

In which case ADSL24 need to make it clearer. They need to include that statement in what you quote.
