So exciting times for me in hayden wick, swindon as in the next couple of weeks we will be connected to FTTP. Couldn't come at a better time for me to get off adsl+ as I've recently gone 4k on my tv. What confuses me though is reading posts on here by some complaining that FTTP means their broadband is expensive. From what I can see it seems pretty reasonable I remember signing onto broadband when it came out for £30 odd a month and that was really slow by todays standards and only really any use for downloading and web browsing.
Looking at the packages available it seems the ultrafast stuff is cheapest with BT at £40pcm for 200 meg and £50 for 300 meg. The extra £10 not only gives a useful 50% increase in speed but also some extra care - not sure what this is?
So it seems the £50 a month package could be the best value unless I'm missing something obvious? Looking at other providers seems to heavily reduce speeds or rapidly increase price - Zen costs twice as much. I'm kind of confused as to why anyone would choose those services.
