FTTC - speed when changing ISP


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

Just a wee query for you. I'm currently with Sky on their Fibre Pro package and get a solid 79999 down and 19999 up. I'm considering changing ISP and was wondering if these rates would be maintained?

I'm a bit wary of changing as BT offer an upto 76Mbps, do they cap the speed at this, or will they allow the line to hit the speed i currently receive?

Cheers!

The up to 76 is in relation to throughput speed you'd get on a speedtest.

It's still the same 80/20 Openreach product.

I just wish the line can go as fast as the maximum line rate that can support on the line, why capped 79999K / 19999K if the line has the max rate of 102459K / 38676K

So does that mean Openreach should change their business model for little old you?

I thought it was the sync speed that at least 10% of the people on the retail product achieve. (That being one of the reasons BT don't offer Infinity to anyone with estimates below 15Mbps sync).

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - AAISP Home::1 80/20. Sync 71288/12440Kbps @ 600m. BQMs - IPv4 & IPv6

If you look in Sky T & Cs ("Here's the legal bit", you will find, (my bold):
Sky Fibre, Sky Fibre Unlimited & Sky Fibre Max: Availability subject to location and survey. £39 standard fibre activation fee. Maximum home download speeds: Sky Fibre and Sky Fibre Unlimited - up to 38Mb; Sky Fibre Max - up to 76Mb.
Just like BT. You've nothing to worry about on that count, but whether throughput, the real life speed, will be the same only time can tell.

thought there was a ISP that had a option for the VDSL2 modem in the cab to be uncapped for super close customers to the cab as well as 2xVDSL2 bonding options for customers who need more upload and download speed (my google powers are failing me cant seem to find it, mostly due to virgin)

There isnt one on the Openreach portfolio, but there maybe a few ISPs doing doing FTTC line bonding.
