As FTTC is expected to be available for my line on 30th September, and I currently only get around 4 - 5 M from my existing DSL line, I'm currently looking at switching to a fibre product.
With a new arrival due in the house cost is important, both from a one-off installation point of view and also ongoing. Ideally I'd also like to have one or more static IPs like I currently have on DSL, but I can live with dynamic rather than push the cost up too much.
My current thinking is BT Infinity at £18 per month with the weekend calls option as it seems to be both the cheapest both in terms of installation and monthly cost, and also seems to be a good product on the technical side (ignoring customer service), but before I commit I just wondered if anyone had any other suggestions?
Also, I'm currently on the free evening and weekend calls option with BT with the contract running until May next year. Is this likely to cause any problems if I switch to infinity? BT aren't likely to hit me with a charge for finishing the contract early or anything like that? I'm hoping they won't and will simply change the internet side of things over and leave me on my existing package calls wise, but you can never be sure with BT
Finally, if I do go with Infinity, am I better waiting until it's available and then migrating over, or migrate to BT Broadband first and then let them do the upgrade as soon as it's available?
Hope this all makes sense and is in the right place?
