100/25 FTTC


[link to this post]
 
I just wish that Openreach will bring out FTTC product 100/25 soon. Because they moved from 40/10 to 55/10 but what about 80/20 should be moving to 100/25 would be nice!

I doubt it will never happen!

Pretty sure there is a 110/15 tier, but it's only availably on FTTP

Completely different technology. With FTTP every single line has the capability of every single speed tier offering. With VDSL, only those that are very close to the cabinet could achieve anything close to 100meg sync speed.

I am guessing the number of people that could actually get a worthwhile speed increase is very low given how close to the cab a person would need to be. Suspect BT won't do anything like this until they get G.Fast in so they can offer the higher speeds to a higher percentage of people.

There should be an option speed boost eg:

80/20 with a speed boost of 100/20 for an extra £9 a month
40/10 with a speed boost of 60/10 for an extra £5 a month

In this way Openreach will gain profits from customers of speed boost option!

I don't think many people would take it up. 80meg is still more than plenty for most households. This is pretty much confirmed by the fact that majority FTTP customers still only go for 40/10 or 80/20 services.

Don't forget 80Meg isn't throughput speed for household. 80 Meg would get you around 75 meg in real true speed. While 40 meg give you around 38 meg.

From BT, resellers and customers point of view it could just make things even more complicated. I am unconvinced that many people would pay much more to go from 80/20 to 100/20, and BT Openreach have created the 55/10 product which isn't far off your 60/10. I don't know how many people could get a benefit from a 100/20 product but suspect it is too few for BT to muddy the waters - at some point they might replace the 80/20 with a higher product but I can't see them adding one alongside it (unless one of their resellers heavily pushes for it but I can't really see them doing so).

G.Fast would change all that and BT will want to use the higher speeds as a differentiator.

I'm well aware of that. It's still more than enough.
