FTTC currently has a top speed of 40Mbps although BT promised to double that to around 80Mbps next year.

Lithuania leads the European FTTP ranking with 26.6% of households subscribing to the technology, followed by Norway, Sweden, Slovenia, Russia, Slovakia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Estonia and Denmark, in that order. Each of the top ten FTTP nations has a penetration rate of at least 6%.

Maybe we should be considering a move to technologically advanced Bulgaria?

Dependent on speeds you already have on ADSL and the fair usage policy you tend to pay about £15-£20 for up to 20Mbps with uncapped usage so it's not too bad. I had the opportunity for it but went with Be* initially and will probably go infinity in August when my contract is up. Thought I would let BT get rid of any teething issues which they would inevitably have (or not as the case may be).

It's going to be available to anyonr that currenty has the option of FTTC....the more relevant question is how much your willing to pay for 300Mbps as it will be on demand.

I know for sure that 80/15 would be suffice without opting to pay for different cables to the house.

For people that already have FTTC there is a site where you can register your interest for 80Mbps speeds

I have registered so hopefully in time for august I can have super duper fast speeds :)

Front Street East.

Where are you, station?

I personally am waiting for other FTTC providers to come into the area as I can't stand BT. It shouldn't be too long before we can get service from another ISP.

      Almost two-thirds of residents feel the Government was too late introducing a local lockdown in the North East as Covid-19 cases continue to rocket, according to a ChronicleLive survey.
      Tighter restrictions were imposed across the region's seven council areas on September 18 in a bid to combat the spike in coronavirus cases.
      But numbers continue to soar at an alarming rate, with North East cases more than doubling to 2,524 in the week leading to September 21 from 1,107 in the previous seven days.
      According to Public Health England data covering the seven days to September 22, Newcastle now has the highest rate of infection in the North East and the fifth-highest in England – with the city’s numbers almost tripling.
      Newcastle recorded 632 new cases in that week, with an infection rate of 208.7 per 100,000 people. That was compared to 224 new cases and a rate of 74 in the previous 7 days.
      South Tyneside had previously had the second-highest rate in England, but is now eighth according to the latest figures. The borough recorded 301 new cases with an infection rate of 199.4 per 100,000.
