I have been provided with FTTC broadband by Sky for 12 months and have happily enjoyed 26Mbps download speeds (I know, I'm easily pleased 😂). Well the contract has come to an end and I'm trying to shop around for a better deal... only everyone else's (BT, Talk Talk, Vodafone, Plusnet etc, etc... I tried them all!) website says that they can't provide me with Fibre!!??
Not happy with this answer as I'm already connected with Fibre, I consulted the Openreach website which says hooray I can get fibre from cabinet 89!
When I go back to Vodafone & start an online chat, my friendly advisor confuses me even more by saying that they provide Fibre in my area but due to distance from exchange/cabinet, my post code is not eligable? Then she informs me that I can get FTTC but it will only provide 2 - 3 Mbps downloads! Both she and I are at a complete loss as to how Vodafone FTTC is so much slower than my current Sky FTTC? Could it be that they are looking to supply my from a different cabinet that's further away? Why can't any other providers just take up where Sky leave off... surely if the cabling is there for Sky to provide me with 26mbps then it's there for others to utilise too?
Sorry I'm new and don't really understand the problem, I'm just getting really frustrated and feel like I'm continually beating me head against a brick wall, thanks in advance for any help!
