Doesn’t really exist, its still same old copper wire up to your house. However BT are replacing the copper wire from the exchange to the PCP (green box round the corner) with fibre optic drastically reducing the length of the copper wiring to your house. This improves the Maximum speed of the broad band alowing faster contracts. BT market this as BT infinity, i have seen this working at 65Mb/s .
Fiber all the way into the property is available but its only for big bussines's with deep pockets.
If you haven’t changed your service provider for a while ( 2 years ) you will probably notice your bill rising.
You could save money by switching your Service Provider but this is a lot of hassle. An easier way to go about it is to call your them and threaten to change S P unless your bills are reduced .
They will do anything to keep your direct debit going . As long as they can keep helping them selves to your money they will. Even if it means putting you on the latest cheapest deal.
Don’t assume switching back to "good old BT" is going to be any better, they are one of the worst for upping your bill every year.
I met an old dear living alone who was paying BT £475 / year for phone and BB and a load of other stuff she didn’t know anything about. You should be able to get both for £260 / year. Beware low (10gig) data limits this fine if you are an old dear living alone but not for the techno family watching you tube every night.
Why you cant lag to far behind the tech times !
Your steam engine works perfectly but all the railways have been replaced by maglev mono rails !
Your 7 year old PC works perfectly unfortunately your wifi card is wireless 802.11b and the router you have just been sent is only compatible with 802.11g and 802.11n so the wifi doesn't work. Also it runs on windows XP but windows XP will not be supported since april 2014. So you need a to update your operating system. Windows 8 :- cost £70 ,and wont run on your steam train.
