What you're saying is true if the new service is Infinity, which is why I asked what the new service is.

And assuming the caller was really from BT, which has not been verified. Given the amount of misinformation in the OP, to me that seems unlikely, but we have no indication from the OP that the post was tongue-in-cheek.

Also given the OP's ISP, which I too noticed long before it was flagged up, it is possible he believed the misinformation and was himself slagging off BT Retail.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 54.0/14.9Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

''Hello, this is BT. Are you aware of the new service we are providing in your area" was how the phone call started that I received.. I know of 2 other people who received similar calls, both on BT Broadband, as they rang me for advice about Infinity (as the person who looks after their PCs). One has stayed on adsl 2, the other is being discussed in the fibre forum (two engineers no show.........)

I'm inclined to agree that the OP was using his mis-information (from where-ever it came) to try and denigrate BT. I somehow doubt we will be hearing from him again about it.

in reply to "See my first reply to him. Still waiting for an answer"

There is no 'new' service - the salesman was referring to BT Infinity. Try and keep up tongue
From his profile:
ISP Merula
Connection MaxADSL

If you read the end of his sig it says
Merula FTTC


I had a look at their FTTC offerings and the premium service has a guide limit of only 200GB, has a static IP, no throttling/shaping and is £40/month Ex VAT. (For the 80/20 service)

BT -> Zen -> F2S -> Bulldog -> Be* -> BT Infinity 2
