Having just ordered a line rental move to them, (£14pm rental + caller display + basic 1571 v BT £24.31 for the same + E & W), I'm wondering about their FTTC.

Does anyone know whether they use WBC/WBMC possibly via someone like Enta or Daisy, straight TalkTalk Business on SMPF, or whether it is TalkTalk tails with third-party backhaul such as Daisy please?

I don't want to ask them at the moment.

Hi Robertos,
I cant answer your question fulIy but I have just taken out a new connection with Pulse8. Currently on adsl with them via Talktalk business. I will be upgraded shortly to FTTC. I have been informed they also use Talk Talk business for FTTC.

I haven't had FTTC for over 2 years, and have moved house. The primary reason for a new connection was to get out of Virgin Media over utilisation, and poor pings.
Currently Pulse8 are performing well on adsl, but being a fair distance from the local cabinet, predicated speed of 38Mbps for FTTC doesn't light my fire yet.....but we shall see what I get or can achieve by the end of the week.

Things level and steady here. Had not been for a long long time. Getting back the speed I lost with the bad Billion router. Quite happy.

Would you mind running a tracert to bbc.co.uk for me please?

I think I know what it will show, but would like to see if I'm right.

(Or anyone on Pulse8 FTTC).

Are you splitting your PN broadband from the phone line? Or have you always kept it separate?

It's always been separate. But despite my lifelong belief in BT being the best place to have line rental I just discovered that in effect I am paying over £10 per month purely for a comfort feeling about what would happen if I had a line problem smile.

No-brainer.

Re Plusnet FTTC, fortunately I went onto Fibre Extra before the non-PN Phone £2.50 premium was introduced so am happily on £19.99pm for that.

Lucky wink

While I'm not yet unhappy with my current PN service operationally, I'm not exactly overjoyed with the way things have gone over there recently.

Nothing's happened to make me move right this instance, but I'd say the risk is now higher that it could happen in the future.

That makes it hard to choose to commit to a line rental saver.

How much do you use your line for phone?

The Pulse8, and the forecast uno (xilo SOHO), prices are dramatic.

No call setup charges. 1p per minute on per second billing? Uno going to be a fraction higher. And £10pm lower rental.

They are both clearly just aiming for a medium margin on actual cost from Openreach. Like all providers should be doing.

Not a huge amount - but do make a little use of the hour-long inclusive calls every now and again.

I'll have to calculate what the monthly cost will buy you in calls.
