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.

    • A festive operation aimed at tackling crime and disorder in Sunderland city centre has been hailed a success after crime rates plummeted by 16%.
      Business leaders on Wearside joined Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Kim McGuinness in praising the impact of Operation Kraken after the initiative led to a significant drop in recorded crime.
      Spearheaded by Sergeant Maria Ord and the city centre neighbourhood team, the annual festive crackdown was again run in partnership with the Bridges and Sunderland Business Improvement District (BID), along with Sunderland City Council.
      From November 25 through until Christmas Eve, the initiative saw uniformed and plain-clothed officers target all city centre criminality, specifically adult anti-social behaviour and retail-related offences.
      Now, after the 2019 Kraken operation showed a 16% decrease in city centre crime compared to the previous year, Sgt Ord hopes to build on those successes in the coming months.
      "We are delighted with how Operation Kraken went," Sgt Ord said. "The initiative was about maintaining a hassle-free and safe environment which allowed families to enjoy everything this city has to offer during the lead-up to Christmas.
