Also see reports of FTTP throughput in general not being very consistent throughout the day.
So I guess the post is canvassing opinion from anyone who's on one of these ultrafast 900/115 packages to see how they're getting on with it, whether it is good value for money, or whether the reality of the backhaul / ISP infrastructure means it is hard to achieve the throughput advertised.
Thanks for any responses.
I have been on BT's Fibre 900 for just under a year now (upgraded from 300 in Mar 2020, which I had had only for about 6 weeks). My experience has been that the service is faultless. Speed tests show consistent upload speeds of 120ish. Downloads speeds have been limited only by my hardware (Ubiquiti's UDM-Pro still has outstanding issues with PPPoE). I have not noticed a single service fail.
There are very few of us sharing the CBT here, I would suspect - a very rural location, just outside the M25. I have seen no variation in consistency through the day. On the few occasions I have suspected a dl issue a quick check has shown issues at the other end or over the interweb generally.
Like you, upload was what I was after (much shifting around of large brain scans, in my case). 100-120 is just great. And consistent.
Good value for money? Well, I am paying £57/m, which is a lot. But given that I signed up just pre-Covid, I have not regretted it at all. High family contentment while everyone was around. That said, a 300 connection is more than sufficient for multiple 4k downloads - though of course won't give you the upload pipe.
Summary - no regrets, happy punter
