I asked this in the fibre BB section but it didn't see hardly any replies , this seems a more appropriate section to post. Mods feel free to close the other thread.
Please go easy I'm a newbie to this with a few questions
My area is currently being worked on by Openreach , the fibre cabinet that is to serve our property is installed (confirmed this serves ours by Openreach) and there's been a lot of activity at the front with manholes being lifted etc , our house is approximately 75 metres from the fibre cab and the pole is virtually outside our house we've been given an estimated order date of Feb 14 and I have a few questions.
My current BB provider is Sky so when inputting my phone number on the checkers it's not recognised , using the postcode it estimates 58.1 down and 19 up how accurate are these ?
My telephone wiring that comes down the front of the house from were the wire from the pole hits the house is really old grey wiring with a kind of split down the middle if that makes sense , will this work with fibre or will Openreach replace this when I'm installed ?
Who's the best unlimited fibre provider , I'm thinking value for money.
