But, but, but - if Fibre annoys you, why does it bother you that you haven't got it? laugh wink

If you have a cooperative person in the house behind yours, you could get a line installed and feed from there. A 100m Ethernet connection through the gardens should do the trick smile.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 59.4/14.4Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

So lack of fibre annoys you, and quite a few others to be honest. Have you checked with your local council to see if you are covered by the BDUK project (or indeed checked with BT to see if you are in their plans just not yet done)?

That gets at me too! The price of ADSL and VDSL aren't very different, but yet the services are very different. It's not fair at all.

Current Connection: BTBroadband (BE Leavers Deal) - Sync: 16040/1279kbps
Previous Connection: BE Pro (24/2.5) - Left because of Sky.

I know a few people who get good speeds on their ADSL and when asked about fibre say they have no interest as they would be paying more for it and yet not doing anything more with it.

My contract is coming to it's end in the next 4 months, I get 10 Mb/s which for me is fine, but I know full well I can get fibre and phone cheaper than what I am paying, the problem for me they are with companies I don't really want anything to do with , like Talk Talk. So I am going to stay as I am.

But on those speeds, it would suggest that your exchange is right by your house.

Is your line supported direct to the exchange? I was under the impression that all those lines that are connected directly to the exchange would not get FTTC? I could be wrong though.
