OK, I am moving house soon, from a very stable FTTC Infinity 2 (getting a stable 70Mbps) to a slightly more rural location, which although does have FTTC at the cabinet, it looks like the cabinet is in fact at capacity, as it shows a Waiting List, so I am not overly hopeful of getting any sort of FTTC service, as it seems to be a lottery getting a Waiting List slot...
The cabinet is the Dunfermline Cabinet 25
So, my only feasible option seems to be FTTPoD...despite its cost.
So, I know there are a couple of people on here posting their path to FTTPoD, one with Cerebrus and one with FluidOne...
The install prices would more than likely be very similar, but it looks like FluidOne is £300/month, and Cerebrus seems to be almost half that, at about £165/month (I haven't checked, but these are probably excluding VAT, aswell)...
So, a few questions obviously spring to mind...
1. is there a reason for the monthly price differential? Both seem to be unlimited 300/30 services
2. It looks like these are the only two companies offering FTTPoD...are there any others? Are there likely to be more as time goes by? and if so, could this lead to a lowering of prices, or is the (quoted, but depends on individual install circumstances, obviously) £3700 install and £165/£300 per month pretty much standard, and what to expect?
3. In the 3 months or so it will take to survey, install and activate, what are my best options? Simply sign up for a monthly ADSL ISP, so I can cancel anytime? ADSL at my address seems to be looking at giving me about 2Mbps...pretty poor when you are used to 70!!!
I am sure I will think of more questions, but that should be enough to be going on with, but any advice would be very welcome!
