FTTC recommendation


[link to this post]
 
Looking to move away from my current ISP and upgrade to FTTC at the same time.
Ideally a bundle would be best to keep things simple so line rental, FTTC and an evening weekends call package.
We use about 50gb/month at the moment which is mostly streaming TV etc.
Exchange is Colwyn Bay https://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange/WNCB
Happy to pay a bit more for decent customer service within reason.
Max 12 month contract.

What say you?!

Fixed the link for you. If you remove the full stop at the end of the URL in your post that link will work as well.

Have you checked your cabinet can get FTTC, and the speed estimate? Link. Not all the lines on the exchange can get it.

Don't use the pure post code option. It can't be trusted. Phone number is best, address normally OK. If they differ then there is a problem.

Yes FTTC is definitely available to order on the check plus next door has it wink

Yes, I was more confused with the difference between "business" and "residential" offerings similar to the contention options on ADSL, plus the thread turned into an argument between a couple of posters about pulse 8 as I recall!

Though I will no doubt be shouted at for suggesting it, I have had no issues with BT Broadband's FTTC service, I use their BT TV as well all bundled together with line rental. Keeps it all in one place and makes sense to me.

I might add they have some banging SIM only deals discounted further if you are an existing customer of theirs.

I was with BT for max a few years back. When it worked it was fine but if there was a tech or billing problem etc it was an absolute nightmare. Swore I would never go back!
