Broadband

Postby Rob H » Sun Jan 06, 2013 1:46 pm

Anyone know of good, handy websites that BT are likely to monitor and hopefully comment on?

Our development which although now nine years old is the newest development in our town. However, it's also the only part that is not on super fast broadband. We currently get 1.2Mb which is rubbish!!

Sky blame BT, can't get any sense out of BT at all.

Rob,

I think you need to work at a bigger scale than that. My local pressure group working to try to get BT to speed up BB in rural areas has a budget of £15M. www.gfirstbroadband.co.uk

Sky are almost certainly right. I have their broadband and have never had any problems except when BT were messing about in the road outside. It really does depend on what BT provide for your particular area.

Had a long conversation with BT on Monday. They advised that by the end of this year, almost 100% of the population will have access to superfast broadband although no date exists as yet for our road.

Free Beer tomorrow, but we don't have a date for deliveries in your area.
