Fibre Broadband


[link to this post]
 
I have noticed that there seems to be a distinct lack of people posting anything about EE/Orange's Fibre Broadband offerings, are people just not taking it up ? or does it work so well that nobody that has signed up already has anything to complain about, I can't see me getting it even though it is now available at my exchange due the increased cost involved to what I pay atm for my broadband & phone package I just wondered what other peoples thoughts are on this ?

I think I've only seen 1 EE Fibre here: http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/multiuser/f/4190664... . It's early days yet!

I've no interest in upgrading cuz 1) I already get 20 Meg ADSL2+, 2) cost, 3) I wouldn't let EE touch my voice line with a bargepole.

I'm still on up to 8 with a speed of 6 but my line is still with BT. EE ring up quite often trying to get the line. Fibre should be here within weeks so will have to think again then.

surely the price will have to come down at some point that is if BT want mass take up of Fibre Broadband as I just cant see the majority of people wanting to spend close to £40 a month for it with EE/Orange or anyone else in today's economic conditions I see this is what the Plusnet site is quoting me for upto 76 meg Fibre
Monthly payment
Unlimited Fibre Broadband£19.99
Promotional discount (for 6 months)- £10.00
Plusnet Protect powered by McAfee Included
Line rental£13.99
Talk Anytime £4.00
Voicemail (1571)Included
Monthly total £27.98
for the first 6 months
now if that was the price full stop then I would sign up in a flash & I am sure so would a lot of people apart from maybe Ray smile lol sorry mate.

Hi Keith, I was with BT for home phone and I'm now with EE Orange for landline rental and landline home phone with free evenings and weekend calls. Orange do not touch your phone line it stays with BT and you still get the same BT caller answering service and caller display. You just pay Orange and not BT.

They do in the sense that they would be responsible for sorting out any faults on it. (Don't talk about BT OR, they are not your contractor). With all the experience of Orange BB Support, can you imagine that their Voice support will be any better? While BT Retail's is excellent.

I'd have no qualms for taking PN Unlimited 76 Meg Fibre Broadband Only @ £19.99 pm.

It's 67% the price of EE's equivalent which includes E & W/e calls which I can get from BT for nowt anyway.

If there was a telephone line fault it would passed to BT to rectify, I cannot see your problem, you must think you are still on the Orange LLU network where Orange were more involved with the network. Donít forget Orange have passed the running of the network over to BT. So itís just like being with BT but you pay EE Orange. wink

One reason I would not have BT broadband is you cannot use Microsoft Outlook Express unless you use something like Google Gmail, mostly BT broadband customers use Yahoo Mail. frown

well all i can go by with the home phone is my personal experience, I have had the anytime calls package with my orange broadband for the last 2-3 years & touch wood have never had any problems with it, a couple of weeks back I had my Neighbors all Talk Talk Customers knocking on the door asking if my phone & broadband was working ok which it was, theirs was cut off all that day but I had no issues at all, so no complaints here on that score.
