As I've said a few times, probably at least once in this thread, I'm taking a punt on this.
Tomorrow my mobile number port should take place. If that goes well, as most do, I shall pack in my FTTC. With no Cease charge.
If the Three service proves to become congested, I can restart AAISP with no connection charge. But I believe that having had their fingers burnt once Three have learned that lesson.
I'm also almost certain to ditch my Pulse8 landline once the FTTC has ceased, as it's basically only used for the broadband and four incoming callers who only use it through habit.
If I do need a line in future I can simply ask AAISP to connect their £10 line-only service along with their FTTC
. With what will be a £40pm saving once these changes are complete I don't need it to succeed for long to have saved enough to pay for a new PSTN line.
In any case, my normal use of streaming services is restricted to F1 races when they are not on Channel 4, (though IIRC they won't be there next year), and maybe now that I have a basic Netflix service I might occasionally want to use that.
As I've had two or three months subscription to Netflix now, and only watched the series about Egyptian pyramids I doubt if I would be bothered if I found it unusable for a period when both Manchester football clubs were playing matches that were being streamed over the net at the same time as a Wimbledon final or another royal wedding or funeral Ö.
My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk.
Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests 35-45Mpbs down, 9-15 up.
If you never think of anything off the wall, you'll never think of anything original.
