An ex-Be refugee here who's moving to a new flat in late April. As a Be user, I'd appreciate a bit of quality, so was looking at perhaps XILO or Plus.net.
However all I have to go on at the moment is an address and no telephone number which makes things a little tricky in determining what I can get.
As a result, I wanted to ask:-
*) Can BT or ISPs detect what the said property has on their systems?
*) In the event I go with LLU, is it still the case that you'd need to wait several weeks for Openreach to sort out your line? :/
I'm open to the option of FTTC but I seem to recall reading somewhere that FTTC isn't always available to block of flats? (even if the address checker claims I can have FTTC). But if I go with FTTC, it will definitely have to be a 12 months contract as renting.
Virgin isn't an option, not cabled.
FWIW, this is what the dslchecker.bt.com address checker tells me....
