Vivaciti FTTC Fibre Unlimited.


[link to this post]
 
My exchange got upgraded for FTTC last year but for some reason BT didn't bother fitting a new cabinet in my local area. One sprung up about 6 weeks ago and today, finally, the various checkers are showing that i can now get FTTC.

So, i've got my MAC and am considering Vivaciti.

If anyone is using the Fibre Unlimited product from this provider i'd appreciate some answers to the following:

Current usage is about 250GB/month, is this acceptable on the Fibre Unlimited package? The FAQ makes mention of a FUP of 100GB/month but not on "truly unlimited" products, which i'm assuming the Fibre Unlimited package is?

Does the £37.20/month cost include VAT? The other fibre products in home include VAT, and the other fibre products in office exclude it. The Fibre Unlimited package appears in both and doesn't say either way.

From what i've read static IPv4 addresses are standard on Vivaciti products, so i'm assuming it's the same on Fibre Unlimited. What about native IPv6?

Finally, what's the performance like and who would provide the backhaul for the Fibre Unlimited product (i'm on the SDRYD exchange)?

since a FUP is now not ASA complaint, then for vivaciti to be ASA complaint your usage is fine.

I sent the same questions via their contact page and eventually got a reply.

In case anyone else has similar queries in the future i'll answer my own questions:

The £37.20 for Fibre Unlimited does include VAT.

It is truly unlimited, but only on Market 3 exchanges (which mine is).

No IPv6 on Fibre Unlimited at the moment.

They didn't say who is providing the backhaul.

Anyway, i've ordered so i'll see how things go.

Yeah, everything went fine.

The poor sod was out there in the thunder and pouring rain doing something at the pole for a while, but it was all done within the hour.

And because i've been using a separate ADSL modem and router for the past couple of years it was just a matter of slapping the new PPPoE username/password in and updating the QOS upload/download rates. A reboot and away things went.

Getting around 45/6Mbps.

The answer to one of my original questions is that it's on the Murphx network.

did you get a static IP or is it dynamic?

Static. I've had a few PPP sessions due to making changes on the router and the IP has been the same throughout.

The static IP was one of the reasons i went with Vivaciti. I did consider the BT business service, but it comes in at £48/month compared to Vivaciti's £37.20.
