Re: Current Satellite Broadband Supplier Recommendations

In reply to a post by broadbandFlash:
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
