I am a gamer but only on the Xbox Series X, not PC.

My pings to BBC are around 6ms and stable.

I get around 14ms on Battlefield servers which I believe are hosted in Germany.

Here is my BQM -

You don't have to use their router. I am using my own Asus RT-AC68u. You just need a router that is MER / DHCP Option 61 capable.

There's a lot of spikes on that BQM. Oh OK good to know you can use some routers then now. You don't have to use the sky router at all then, not even in modem mode?

In terms of new fttp installs, do they require and engineer visit? And therefore take quite a while seeing as openreach have stopped all that with the current lockdown? Meaning I wouldn't be able to get broadband until that changes.

An engineer visit is required if there is no ONT present in the property.

I've just been looking at the Vodafone website and put the postcode in to see. It had 6 different packages but said to order please call as it can't be done online at the moment. I thought the packages were just generic so I called them up.

They told me that I can get gigafast 200 at £32p/m or gigafast 500 at £38p/m. It seems too good to be true as anyone else at that speed of up above £55. I thought it was just city fibre doing those speed at that price but he said openreach as well.

Anyone with experiences of gigafast Vodafone?

I can't answer the question, but the price might be a bit like retention deals, each sales person having a monthly target for signups and a budget of discounts to hook the punter.

(Just a guess, but it is near the end of the month. Some reps will use theirs up early, others have some spare).

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, sites and mail hosting - Tsohost & Ionos.
Connections: OnePlus 8 Pro max 165Mbps down, 24Mbps up on Three, and B311 4G, tbb tests normally 35-45Mpbs down, 65Mbps off-peak, 9-24 up.

These were the prices on the website and I confirmed them on the phone so it's prices available to everyone. The more I've read about it I'm thinking Zen is the way to go though.
