Hyperoptic vs BT FTTP


[link to this post]
 
I'm moving into one of the new olympic village flats and have a choice between Hyperoptic and a BT based FTTP service, which is definitely a plus smile.

I'm thinking to give hyperoptic a try first. Anyone have any thoughts?

Leaving aside their respective speeds for a moment a point to consider is that using the Hyperoptic connection you have the choice of just one ISP, Hyperoptic, whereas if you decide to go with the BT connection you have numerous ISPs to choose from. It all depends what you require or expect from your ISP over and above a connection to the internet.

1gigabit from hyperoptic, and I guess up to 330mbit/sec from BT (or other BT-based ISP).

You mean this?
The "Hyper-sonic" package, incredible 1 Gig download and 1 Gig upload.
This appears to be a no-brainer.

I'd definitely go with Hyperoptic, their speeds will be a lot less contended and I bet the customer service will be better than most BT-based ISPs.

Well if you get the Hyperoptic gigabit I think you have a moral obligation to post endless screencasts of a 128MB/s download tongue

If you read the Hyperoptic website they recommend not using a router if you want the highest speed from the 1 gig service. Their supplied router tops out a 829 Mbps apparently.
