Hoping to get some advice as we switch away from BT. We live in rural Kent and get 2.4MPS on a good day - with dropout issues - only 2 adults using it.
Fed up with BT so have been researching alternatives, especially as we are 2.8km from our local exchange and appear to not be getting fibre anytime soon.
I have been looking at VFast - http://www.vfast.co.uk and they tell me they do have customers in our area but not on our road. I donít want to get my hope up as trees may be an issue. Speeds unto 24mbps which I find hard to believe but have read lots of positive stuff.
We are with SKY for TV but donít believe we can get their higher speeds.
We are using a BT HH3 (3rd one as have needed replacements) and our average usage is 94GB/month but can be higher so we would like an unlimited deal though would be able to stay within any fair usage policies as its just netflix/internet radio/uploading photos to cloud (has taken 3 months to upload 15,000).
My questions are mainly - are we likely to have fibre anytime soon? (We are near Pluckley station, Kent just outside the council maps for upgrading 2017)
Is switching to wireless necessary? Can we do more in our home? New Hub etc (though i presume this wonít help with speeds)
