No More ADSL

Can't see any non-fttc packages on the website any more - looks like Voda might have stopped selling regular broadband.

Are you sure?

As it costs much the same as FTTC 38mbps, I am not sure many would want it.

That is what they are trying to do, push people to FTTC, so what about people who can not get FTTC?

Your link shows only FTTC packages (for me). Perhaps a cookie is altering the packages you see.

I can't get FTTC but do have ADSL Max - the checker tells me there is no broadband available at my address, so it does seem that FTTC is the only thing on offer.

And I can't. Only Fibre 38 and Fibre 76 for me, and I've not entered telephone no. or anything.
And look at the phrasing on their website!
"Our" fibre broadband is up to 9 times faster than "UK standard" broadband.

I can see why they're not promoting "UK standard" broadband after bashing it like that smile

If exchange is IPStream Max only then as Vodafone is a LLU operator no surprise in not offering ADSL, just like Sky and TalkTalk.

No requirement for firms like Vodafone, Sky, TalkTalk, Virgin Media to offer a broadband service in every corner of the UK, and with no broadband USO not even an absolute requirement on BT Group

When I put my details in it only offers me fibre, when I click on Fibre it tells me I can't get it (which I'm aware of) but no other options. It displays the ADSL speeds I can get, just no packages.

/edit - their online chat said it's a problem on the website - so it should be available.
/edit2 - their telesales was insisting I could get fibre, until she checked on the website herself - in the end she quoted me £23 per month for ADSL (or Standard as they call it), £1 setup fee and £30 new line install.

ISP: Zen, getting around 6mb down - .8mb up
Exchange is Fibre enabled, Cab not economically viable to upgrade - though hanging on the carrot being dangled - 'There are projects to be initiated in 2017, however, we do not have a particular timescale at this moment.'

Interesting - I wonder what the criteria for displaying the 'standard' broadband is. I'm still seeing only the two FTTC plans.

Hmm not sure as it seems to change for different people before you put any details in - and also according to Samknows my exchange has Vodafone LLU so should show standard ADSL for me.

The exchange I was using is Market 1. i.e. no LLU. I am failry certain that the FTTC cabinet that I would use has a fibre connection to that exchange, rather than a nearby one.

Yes. And if I disable Javascript, the Broadband 17 package appears, so it looks like it's being hidden by Javascript for some people.

They do try and push their customers onto fibre, even if they have no desire to go. someone i know who is on sky broadband keeps getting phone calls, emails and letters from Sky trying to get them onto fibre.
Sky do not like taking no for an answer.

By all accounts Talk Talk is also trying to push people onto Fibre

I'm on Sky ADSL2+ with no TV or mobile, and I've fully opted out of all marketing in my Sky control panel. I don't hear a peep of marketing from them about fibre or anything else.

[re: Oliver341] [link to this post]
 
i will have to tell them to look at their Sky control panel. I do not get much from Plusnet to be honest, I had one phone call a few weeks after I had the service and that was to try and get me to have Plusnet Tv, to which I refused telling them I do not have a Tv licence, the other was a couple of months ago when they phoned me offer their mobile phone service, which was a bit strange as I was already using their mobile phone service and I still am. smile
One of the reasons i avoided sky was because of the fact they keep trying to get me to have Sky Tv.


i am ok with what I have got to be honest,
