Re: FTTP monopoly - what are my options?


[re: Zarjaz] [link to this post]
 
I'm currently using a EE 4G month-to-month, it works well, but it's expensive. I do stream netflix from time to time but I'm no heavy user by any stretch. I'd see its the bandwidth I don't really need if that makes sense.

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

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

You canít have an ADSL service though.


Isn't that meant to say 'can'? smile

The OP address "might" only be FTTP and have no copper, if so, then no ADSLx

If the developer planned for FTTP then I doubt it Openreach would also have installed copper, which means he canít get an adsl1/adsl2+ service.

I think that's going to be your best bet for now. Hunt around and see what the best mobile data deal is going to be.

Surely it makes sense to go for Infinity 1 which is around 30 quid a month woth no worries about usage then? Rather than worrying about going over and spending more on data?

With more higher quality content being available, itís not hard to chew through hundreds of Gb per month without thinking about it, especially if you watch netflix. 4K HDR content uses about 10Gb per hour.

I could take you half a dozen plus large new build estates round here where Openreach FTTC is the only service.

I believe it is the way forward, so unusual to see posts of the OP's ilk.

But then it seems likely the OP will still be paying for a mobile contract of some sort on top of the FTTP service.

Said heís using EE 4G month to month, so I assumed no contract.

If it is a contract, then see it out and get a fixed line service, imo.

Agreed ....

Seems odd to have someone post on here about only being able to get FTTP ...... different strokes innit.
