Fibre to a flat ?


[link to this post]
 
I am researching things for a friend. They live in a (purchased) flat and might decide to move to fibre. Would they likely be FTTC ? If one of the others then does this cost more ? How can we find out ?

Thanks.

depends where they are and what's available. Virgin's cable broadband covers about half the population, otherwise look at the BT availability checker www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome

MaxDSL - goes as fast as it can and doesn't read the line checker first.

FTTC is delivered over the existing copper from the cabinet. Nothing at all to stop them having it if available at their address.

FTTP at flats is another matter - not currently possible so far as I know. What does this checker say about their phone number, assuming it isn't LLU phone. Try the address option, (not the postcode one), if it is LLU phone.

What is your friend on at the moment? Some moves are easy, some can be messy.
