I have been a happy NewNet/Timico customer for 10+ years - currently on their CP Enterprise Broadband ADSL UL 1H16 package.
My village, Catherington, served by the Horndean Exchange will very shortly have a long awaited FTTC service available.
I am inclined to switch to one of Timico's FTTC offerings; I know the contract is 24 months, and they are not the cheapest, but they have to date served me well.
I would however appreciate comments from others using one of Timico's FTTC offerings, as my experience to date has only been of their ADSL service.
My second question is more difficult. I am chairman of The Catherington Village Residents' Association and a number of locals have asked my advice on switching ISPs. I'm happy to recommend Timicio to business users, but am not sure they are seeking new "residential" users.
I also feel that some many not be happy with a name which is not familiar to them so I anticipate that as usual BT will benefit !
