If ISP's thought we wouldnt pay higher prices for broadband we'd all be paying £10 now.

It seems everytime some positive news comes out most are stuck in a rut of negativity. Lets try and be positive about this news.

I think the pro-Fibre people in BT/OR now at least have a voice in Mike McTighe.

I'm 'pro fibre' ............. I was just saying I thought it somewhat unreasonable to expect not to have to pay something towards upkeep of copper OR fibre.

Ahh yea.. only my opening line was aimed at you. The rest was aimed at the pessimistic posters on here.

Sorry about that smile

Not entirely sure why you'd aim that at me ??

... as Openreach builds fibre connections, it will need to encourage internet users need to pay more for their services.
Good luck with that!


Most customers would not mind paying a little more if guaranteed a decent speed increase but the ones that do not need the speed will not pay full price as it stands.
Market evidence suggests that 'most customers' would not pay extra. The majority of customers are on the cheaper packages and shop around for the cheapest deal they can find. I seem to recall a survey not so long ago that implied most customers don't even know what package they are on let alone what speeds they are actually getting.

Meh, I could come up with a plan before Christmas. Even this coming Christmas. But getting everyone to agree to it then getting everyone organised to implement it then actually getting spades in the ground and fibre laid is another matter.

Re: Openreach fibre plan for 10m premises - 'before Christma

The issue is not so much what consumers will pay but rather what ofcom allow openreach to be paid.

e.g. we have had inflation busting line rental increases for several years now and consumers are clearly paying the higher prices, but at the same time openreach's share of the revenue has been forced down by ofcom.

Regulation is holding back investment.
