FTTP monopoly - what are my options?


[link to this post]
 
I've had a long conversation with a chap at BT, and it turns out as my property (new build) is FTTP, it seems that my only option on the provider is BT..

I don't want to be tied in with BT as my only option, what are my options? I don't need a fast connection, I don't want to be tied into paying more for something I'm not going to use.

I can't be the only one in this situation, but I can't find any information out there. It's very frustrating. Any help would be appreciated.

If you enter your postcode at https://www.thinkbroadband.com/packages we should filter to show the FTTP packages at the top, if they don't appear shout at me as it may be new FTTP I don't know about.

BT, Zen and AAISP are pretty much your options. Sky and TalkTalk etc have chosen to not yet offer their services on Openreach’s FTTP network.

The price for Infinity 1 and 2 is the same prices as it is for FTTC.

You can’t have an ADSL service though.

Not really, you can also order Openreach based FTTP services on Zen, IDNet, AAISP - however going with BT is probably your cheapest option once you factor in the offers.

I assume you mean BT as you yourself have also said Sky don't currently offer FTTP?
