Hi was wondering why FTTC Monthly Caps are so low in comparision to the Speed/Price increase?
I'm currently on Zen active (Upto 20mbps (actual 4.5mbps)) 50Gb Monthly cap @ £25.52 (closer to £20 because I was going to move last year but got a discount to stay).
Ok now here's the thing Fibre active (40mbps (line estimate puts it at 36mbps)) 50Gb Monthly cap @ £36 not inc almost £100 connection.
Now the point is what's is the thinking of charging so much more for a product in which you can still only download the same amount in amonthly period? All this will do is hit the cap so much sooner.
Allegory time:- Full tank meaning 50gb monthly cap.
I Fill a Mini up with Petrol for £20 and travel 100 miles in say 2 hours.
I fill a Porche up with petrol for £40 and travel 100 miles in 30 mins.
I might get there faster but once the tank's empty what use is that 40mbps speed?
I really want to stay with Zen but the limit is brutally short as Fibre is meant to be fast and good for streaming/downloading but speed means nothing if you have an empty tank..
It's late and i'm partially drunk but this has been on my mind for a while.
