Hello All - Interesting one today.
We're trying to setup a new office in Derby of all places (Near the Football Stadium) an area full of offices and car showrooms etc. So you'd naturally think there would be decent FTTP / FTTC infrastructure, the answer is sadly no.
BT quoted us a £3500 additional construction charge for a leased line, alongside a £330pcm charge for 100mb Up and Down.
However, this company called Glide has it's own Fibre Cabinets and infastructure in the area (They look like normal Openreach ones) that can deliver both Fiber to the Premise and FTTC via Openreach's PCP boxes.
The quote i've got today from then is for £300pcm for a 1GB Symetrical service, which is ridiclously cheap in comparsion to Openreach.
Has anyone had any experience with them before? They're midlands based and friendly which is always a good start.
