Which 80/20 Fibre Provider


[link to this post]
 
So I have been with plusnet since 2013 and I am now getting bored of rebooting or switching off my router to get on a "decent" gateway. I have looked at BT, Zen, Sky and TalkTalk.

I am at the point where I will happily buy myself out of my remaining contract. BT have some great deals on Infinity 2, I get BT Wifi and so on. Besides the customer support which can be "problematic" are there any other downsides to BT?

My exchange is WWBRIX and it mentions that TalkTalk and Sky are LLU, does this mean they have their own backhaul as well or just their own equipment in the exchange?

In the past I would have said Zen was a no brainer but seeing that I can get BT and their TV package and save £30 a month on plusnet + Sky TV it has made me wonder.

Based on the BT Wholesale tests:

Download speedachieved during the test was - 63.87 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 40 Mbps-67.28 Mbps .
Additional Information:
IP Profile for your line is - 67.28 Mbps

Upload speed achieved during the test was - 15.3Mbps
Additional Information:
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 20 Mbps


Thoughts really would be appreciated!

LLU means there own back haul generally

All providers are pretty much the same

it just depends on the level of custom service you want.

Spoke to Sky this morning and went with their Sky Fibre Pro package. Got a 12 month contract and over 40% discount for 10 months and I still get a UK call centre.

Cool

I had the pro package for a long time but after the discount end and they refused to change my number.

I switched to another provider
