Do you need FTTC services?
A general reply really to everyone, we get so many enquries where customers use less than 10GB a month and in many cases already syncing up a very reasonable speeds (ie: 12Mbps+) that it seems really unrequired at the moment to consider FTTx services. For many it cheaper and very practical to stay on an ADSL2+ service presently, with unlimited choices being far more available.
I am using approx 130GB per month at the moment purely through streaming (Sky Go, Netflix, Lovefilm, iPlayer, 4OD, 5 On Demand) and I do a -lot- of international travel so it would be nice to be able to access my media server to stream media when I am stuck in a hotel room on the other side of the world.
Also, I am concerned about my mobile comms so I want to route everything through a VPN/Secure proxy and having a 10mbit/s upload at home makes that viable (with the added advantage that I can still access VoD and Streaming services if I am proxied through my home IP).
So yes, there are significant advantages for me in switching to FTTC, that is before you even begin to consider my mail server and work projects.
