Hi Michael,

The DSL checker says yes, but its not physically connected, and no other properties around it are allowed to order it. I am informed that the only way to know for sure is to order it and have it activated. To have no internet there would be a bit of a disaster as I work from home, and its a remote area with no other options.

According to the DSL checker its either theoretically got up to 300mbps FTTP, or a disasterous <1mb adsl.

One experienced person has said that even with the checker saying FTTP can be ordered, there is still a 10% chance it won't be able to be connected when they attempt to fit it.


Well if you can get 300 Gfast in remote wales then WHY can't I get it in f'ing Newport!

If someone is charging several grand for setting up satellite equipment they are over charging.

Also on the grants...two schemes

ABC
------
£400 if you upgrade to a 10 or 20 Mbps service
£800 if you upgrade to a 30 Mbps or faster

Ultrafast Connection Voucher
----------------------------------------
Potentially up to £10,000
At least 100 Mbps download and at least 30 Mbps upload - which rules out standard satellite connectivity

More interestingly, did you go ahead with the house? Presumably you're moved in now, or have gone elsewhere...?

I've applied for the latter but heard nothing yet - wanting to fibre my offices
