Thank you for the reply. You might get it a little cheaper from EE in the future.

No. 100mbps upload is more than enough for the general consumer.

Exactly. wink

Also agree, I think 115Mbits upload is also fine, and I do the odd huge (and I say huge) raw content upload now and then to be processed remotely and while I have done that everyone else here has been able to use the connection fine.

I am not saying if BT offered a faster upload to us at a very reasonable price I wouldn't take it, but I can see us on this speed for a while due to it is at this time perfect for our needs.

Open Reach have just installed native FTTP. £59.99 a month rolling + £9.99 set-up fee for the 910/110.
Unbelievable different.

Yeah we went from a very unstable 0 to 5.5Mb ADSL2+ connection to 300Mbits FTTP and saw a huge difference, we also saw another huge difference going from that 300Mbits to 920Mbits.

We mostly got this package for the upload which suits our needs perfectly.

We are very happy with we are paying and getting, any issues we have had at the start was resolved very fast or in a reasonable time frame, so thumbs up smile

Hi Paul, you don't visit as often as you used to obviously because you're package sounds like it's still working good with your new router you purchased.

May I ask have you had any glitches or down time since you got the 910 / 110 package sorted.

Speeds still good etc etc. smile

exactly. Back in 1999, the 128kbps upload I had on NTL cable modem was dramatic, compared to the 10kbps or so my line managed with a 56k modem. (the 33.6kbps modems were symmetric, 56k's were asymmetric)
But today with Zoom, Webex, etc, I moved to Virgin cable from FTTC last Nov because upload had collapsed, and I now get a good 18 to 20 mbps.

Oh I still visit, I have the forums open all day while the PC is on, I read a few posts here and there and do answer a couple now and then.
But yeah I haven't posted as much as I use to but that's due to being busy atm.

Erm I only had that one down time near the start of this package, but that was when they upgraded the hardware I think at the exchange due to I went from the 885Mbits to the full 925Mbits.

I have noticed the single threaded tests show the speed has dropped a little bit, but nothing to moan about.
Apart from that I am getting our full speed 24/7 so no complaints there.
