After a lot of pestering and attending a "Broadband Summit" organised by our MP (http://www.alexchalk.com/news/chalk-hails-%E2%80%9Cl...
) we've been offered subsidised satellite broadband by Fastershire
so they can say they've met their target of everyone on at least 2Mbps by the end of this year.
We obviously wanted to be included in their FTTC rollout, but so far we haven't been due to various reasons, like Fastershire working with out of date data etc etc.
We're eligible under state aid guidelines, we're in an eligible intervention area and the cost-per-property is below their average cost-per-property, so hopefully if they review us again properly we'll be included.
We've not had any details of the subsidy for satellite yet, but does anyone know the likely deals we'll be offered, or how much per-property they budget?
The cost-per-property to put in FTTC is £177 (based on Openreach quote and only counting those who can't get Virgin). Given this is below their average cost-per-property and the fact satellite is a short-term solution How can they justify offering subsidised satellite, given they'll probably end up having to provide FTTC at some point in the future anyway?
