I have fttp with bt and it’s fast, enough. I’m not complaining about that.
I’m just surprised that there are no other companies to choose from. You can, as others have said change to another provider over copper, but that’s not fibre broadband (or 5G) speeds.
I went to visit a friend in Harrogate a few years ago who had Virgin and it was incredibly fast. Much faster than I have now, and much much faster than I had at the time. He had a choice of BT fibre or Virgin. We don’t. Also, despite prominent masts, EE, O2 and Vodafone have left us in a 5G blackspot. I think Three has some sort of 5G coverage. But it’s a surprisingly poor offer is my observation.
I would like to switch from BT on a point of principle but the free market hasn’t made it down here yet!
