FTTC to FTTP - New contract?


[link to this post]
 
I am in the process of moving house and the new property has Openreach FTTP. My current EE contract broadband expires in July and i'm looking at switching over to Fibre 300.

Will EE make me sign a new 18 month deal?

I am no longer an EE mobile customer so won't get discount off the broadband.

When i worked at BT, a home move triggered a new contract.

That's really frustrating as i'm no longer with EE mobile, they aren't particularly competitive without a mobile plan.

TalkTalk Fiber 500 - £40 a month
EE Fiber 300 - £47.......

You will need to start a new contract when you move home but you will not be charged for a new line or new connection.

EE Fibre Max 300 is not FTTP but G.Fast. What makes you think an EE Home Move allows you to upgrade your plan? You would need to discuss that with the EE Home Move team.

What does BT Wholesale Broadband Availability Checker / Address Checker estimate for your new addy? Post just the whole table and the line above it, blanking out your new addy.

I have decided to pay up EE through gritted teeth and find a different ISP.

WBC FTTP Up to 1000 Up to 220 -- Available KCI2 Assure

There is an ONT in the property. Just don't find EE's FTTP packages competitive without an EE mobile.

Ah, so it does. Thanks I've learnt something today,

Altho' one could query the point of 38 Meg EE Fibre & 67 Meg Fibre Plus also available as FTTP. Perhaps just marketing price points.

I'm struggling to pick who to go with next in all honesty.

TalkTalk 500 looks like a front runner for £40 a month. I know their support is shocking but i'm hoping I don't really need to speak to them like when I was last on TT.

Sky only go to 150 by the looks.

BT are a strong alternative to TT, although i'd be going with the 300 package with them I think. 2 year deal though.

Zen, i'm not keen on the 2 year deal.

IDnet, pricey, Aquiss are another alternative but are a little more expensive. AAISP only do 150 and Uno I am strongly considering - due to them offering a 12 month deal. Pulse8 330Mbps looks very good.

My question regarding Uno and Pulse8 is i'd need to use my RT-AC68u. Has it got the legs to run a 330Mbps connection between multiple devices? I've got 24 devices, mainly IOT.

Strange comment.

Statistics show that most people only take 40/10 or 80/20 on FTTP.

I was only going to take 80/20. The only reason I took a 160/30 package was it was the same price.

If you don't allow the lower tiers to be sold on FTTP you effectively charge more to those in FTTP only properties.

Most of your options are going to be 18 month contracts anyway: Aquiss is 12 month, but limited to 150M, which sounds like it rules them out for you.

It's a good time to take out BT right now. You can get 3 months free, no setup charge, and good monthly price. BT's support doesn't have a much better reputation than TT though. Make sure you check all the various links to get the best package price for the speed you want:

https://www.bt.com/broadband/deals
https://www.bt.com/campaign/full-fibre
https://www.bt.com/campaign/full-fibre-240
https://www.bt.com/broadband/bristol
https://www.bt.com/products/affiliate-packages-broad...

Zen may be a longer contract, but at least the price doesn't automatically increase at the end, so it saves hassle and gives you more flexibility should you wish to switch later.

Of the residential providers, BT, Sky and Zen give you IPv6. Zen gives you static IPs. These may or may not be important to you.

IOT isn't going to use much bandwidth, so I'd expect it to be OK.

I have been thinking about the logistics of getting a stable 300Mbps+ connection to my office upstairs.

The obvious way would be to run Cat6 but I am limited, by landlord protocol.

The property is of similar layout and design to the one I am in now and my RT-AC68u provides a reasonable 250Mbps WLAN connection to my office over 5Ghz AC - it does fluctuate though.

I bought some TP-Link powerline adapters, which appear to top out at around 200-250Mbps. Obviously it may be better, it may be worse at the new place.

For the above reasons, I am now considering a slower speed and now Pulse8. As I can easily increase the speed if needed - no contract either.

I don't particularly want to spend a fortune on a new router. If the BT SH2 one blows the RT-AC68u away in terms of performance, then obviously I would consider them.

The Zen fritz box is another one on the radar. Is it decent?

Feel free to move this post as it's not really EE related now.
