I'm soon to be a new BT Broadband customer and am looking into the whole Openzone/FON thing and it's all very confusing - I'll come to that in a minute.
1. But first, I live in a rural area and am expecting to get anywhere betwen 0.75mb - 2mb according to BT. I'm under no illusion that it will most likely be at the lower end of the scale. My PC is in a different room to the hub, so I was hoping to use wireless. Would this slow me down even more? Should I get a long long ethernet cable and use that instead? I'm obviously keen to get every scrap of speed I can!
2. I'm considering opting out of BT FON as I suspect this will slow me down even more (when it's going to be slow enough in the first place). Would this be sensible?
3. Also, as I understand it FON is where domestic users allow access to their connection to fellow members whereas BT Openzone is more wi-fi spots in businesses such as airports, restaurants etc. If I opt out of FON do I lose access to Openzone or can you be registered to Openzone but not FON?
Thanks in advance, I must sign up to this site as it seems a brilliant resource.
