Re: Vivid 350 quietly released

I know this will get the usual cries of "why release faster services when people have issues with the old ones", but I thought someone might like to know.

Vivid 350 is now about, some people have been upgraded, I hadn't, but 1 phone call later I have, for no additional cost.

The max traffic rate is a little over 400mbit:

I get 388mbit on speedtest.net and multisource downloads.

I'm paying £42 a month, broadband only, no phone line, which is the same as I was paying for 300.


tried to upgrade today phoned up but computer says no frown i guess i can wait vivid 300 always maxs out anyway guess its just been greedy wanting more isnt it lol

So is this a point to point or point to multipoint configuration?

I've seen 5G at multiple Gigabit too.


This was point to point I think? It was a residential setup with a few dozen people in service.

Point to point wireless/microwave at these speeds is no surprise, but fixed wireless is usually point to multipoint and the wider beam area is the big issue

I'm going there tomorrow I'll do some speedtests and PM you when they are done.

There are 81 people connected in this village (the threshold is 75 to install) so It's going to be as real world as you can . And on a Sunday

81 people connected means its point to multipoint if they all connect to a single sector on a mast, or they've deployed 81 x point to point links

I went with 200 gamer to get the higher (20 Mbps) upload and remove throttling (online backups etc). It seems this package currently is still 20, so no benefit for me right now.

Is it approx £10 a month more than Vivid 200? I know gamer was +£5 ...

The one I quoted you in? The one where 84 people are all connected to 1 mast etc?

500 Mbps x 81 people impressive point to multipoint fixed wireless in that case and could probably make a fortune scaling that up to sell abroad, particularly when most only sell 30 Mbps
