I can get Fibire to the premises where I am (that's 100 Meg broadband for the same price as FTTC).
Trouble is I think all providers are charging way too much for it at the moment.
It's lower maintenance than copper so why the hell did we bother with ADSL anyway.
Virgin (ADSL) => Namesco => Newnet => O2 => Plusnet => Zen => Newnet => Zen Lite 8000
