LOCAL BROADBAND OPTIONS & SERVICE - we’re in Honor Oak and are unable to get fibre broadband because the cabinet serving our street is only able to service approx 65% of the properties on it.
Openreach tells me they have no plans to upgrade the service as to do so would not be ‘commercially viable’. My next door neighbour has,potentially, services of up to 300mb/s download available yet just meters away we struggle to reach 10mb/s (from a service from Sky we pay for that advertises up to 17mb/s).
Is anyone else in a similar situation?
What other alternatives have you found?
The distribution of Openreach’s services seems unfair and haphazard and as someone who is self employed and dependent on high connection speeds for my business, I’m appalled that this lack of infrastructure is turning into a such handicap.
**I notice Virgin is encouraging those interested in receiving or upgrading fibre broadband to register their interest at the following page. Seems like one of the only options for those of us 2nd class citizens abandoned by Openreach … If you can’t get fibre at the moment or you’re unhappy with BT, register your interest and let’s see if they take any notice!!! **
Interested to hear thoughts - but not so bothered about customer service woes - I just want to be able to have the option to CHOOSE between faster services in the first place !!
