Apart from the few teething problems at the start, i have not had any other problems, the speed is mostly constant, sure now and again it will drop a bit, but that is mainly in the day time when it is really busy, but it normally drops just below 10Mb/s. I pay for 10 and normally get 12 anyway.
Being a small local company, customer support is not far away, ok being only available in office hours is a bit of minus, but the network is monitored all the time so if there is a problem it is fixed pretty quick, so I have been told, not that I have noticed any problems.
I pay £29 a month for my 10Mb/s broadband, that don't include a phone line as I don't need one and I have not got one, it may seem a lot for just 10Mb/s, but compared to what I had before on ADSL it works out cheaper and over twice as fast.
Now a couple of days back I was over at a mates place looking at FTTC cabinet prices and services for him and his family and we came up with these prices.
TalkTalk. simply £27.90
We was looking at the cheapest option with unlimited use, not bothered about add ons or phone packages. the cheapest is Talk Talk with their Simply broadband. For him, going for FTTC may be worth the extra cost as according to the checks he can get 60Mb/s and with a family that is far better than the 5 he gets with ADSL.
Now for me, according to the checks i could get 30Mb/s on FTTc, but my next door neighbour is just getting over 20 with BT. I really don't think it is worth the extra cost to get another 20Mb/s and to be honest of all those companies listed above, I don't really want to give any of them my money.
I have still got another 6 months on my contract and I have no plans to change to FTTC, that don't mean I never will, things can change, I could move, allpay could stop providing the service, I hope not, because a lot of people would be screwed since they cover a large part of Herefordshire that will never get FTTC and also have naff ADSL.
i also don't get any filtering because it is a small ISP, they don't have the same problems as the larger ISPs do with bowing down to block torrent sites or any other sites.
