Correct, I need to remove it from our listings...always thought it an odd package as it did nothing to help real gaming, the lack of upload management made twitch streaming a bit less of a pain but those people are also highly latency sensitive

Some of us has 300 and then they took it away from the area, so nice to see some people getting 350!

Openreach can't do secret anything to market, they don't sell to end users and have to consult with service providers. 400/50 would reduce G.fast reach, with the advertising changes it will struggle anyway, and would be pointless as VM can fairly rapidly release faster anyway.

The sad thing is that I am currently signing people up for 1Gbps symmetrical wifi where my parents live, which is where I will be living from the end of the year.

My dad is having the ISP's base transmitter at the bottom of his garden, and therefore gets a monthly income and a free connection. But as he does not use the internet much he's asked if I can have the free connection instead.

Currently they are at 500/500 but that can be turned up on demand.

Until then I will stick with what I have. I've seen this Wireless ISP in action in another village nearby and I got to say - it leaves BT looking rather [censored].

I know a few people around here who wish VM would sort this area out so they can have their 300 back! It just disappeared last year and even now it's greyed out with a "Sorry 200 is the best we can do for this area" message

Never heard of a WISP even close to 500Mb let alone 1Gb. Who is this?

http://ruralbb.com/

RuralBB is the company, they have a setup in Stone in South Glos running at those speeds.

However their website now only shows 100/100. I do have e-mails from him saying they were doing 20/50/100 and could do 500 and even 1Gbps on demand.

Sorry for the delay I had to dig it up - but this is the original

http://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2017/02/100mbps...

Edit - at the bottom of the webpage it does say "*Prices for the 500Mb service on request."

Ask them the same question of speed but specify at the IP layer rather than wireless transport layer

Will do..

Bear in mind I've seen the system at full speed in Stone and it was hitting 500Mbps then. it's also been fully stress tested by the person who hosts the transmitter.
