Agreed it would be good to know a ball park when the Talk Surf Fibre may be available, but can understand that Uno don't want to say a date and it keep slipping. Seems doing business with TTB is not to be rushed.
I understand the 'Soon' has been since the turn of the year, so its 6 months now. Could mean its really close now, but could also mean another 6 months +?
Sure I saw somewhere that another ISP (AAISP?) had a long wait to go live with TTB too so there is history.
The SSE does look tempting on the surface, but seems there is possibly some hidden surprises like low FUP and aggressive traffic management, peak time slow downs, migration issues and customer service issues and an 18 month contract. I know you have to take things into context, particularly with reviews online. There tends to be end of the world rants over trivial and not so trivial issues, but silence when a service just works. The only exception is when a service is exceptionally good and people like to shout from the rooftops how good it is (AAISP for example and Uno to a slightly lesser extent).
What I find quite interesting is that people tend to accept the restrictive limits and expense imposed by AAISP because they don't hide it and offer exceptional support. Conversely, if a company hides stuff in small print like FUPs and traffic management, the views are (quite rightly) negative.
From my research it seems that AAISP impose an effective 100gb FUP (varies based on what you want to pay upto 1Tb) and then traffic manage anything above that limit to 2Mb/s.
It seems transparency goes a long way to improving perception.
