I had similar problem with them when l upgraded to fibre, as they say , but the fibre only goes as far as the green box 3/4 mile away. To cut a looonnng storey short l ended up getting fibre 3mb short of what they guaranteed for £8 per month on a monthly rolling contract.

i said in another thread that sly offered me tv phone and broadband for £26 pm for 3 yr or up it to £35 for better speeds but we dont have sly fibre here and a few folks i know tried it and cancelled as said speeds were shite and unreliable. so stuck with the expensive vm. also just seen talk talk with black friday offer of tv broadband and phone with amazon prime for £25 mnth but again no other fibre here.

Who cant turn down Free BT fibre if labour wins lol.

But lets be honest the big corps are not here to serve us but to actually rob us blind.

they promised it once before, but then said would be too expensive,and would like to see speeds for free broadband and other customers would be very happy when they have to pay for it. but that is for anothef thread when peeps want to rant :)
