Any Wireless providers up your way yet?

Bizarrely, now that all but one of the houses in my village are on Wireless, Openreach are about to install FTTH. You couldn't make it up. I wonder how many of us will abandon Wireless? I shan't. Boleaux to BT.

No wireless providers anywhere around here - Id guess the fttc line config hasnt been set up yet seeing as Im getting EXACTLY the same speed as I was before. Ive been promised a minimum of 9 meg (everybody bow down at the insane speeds :D !!)

I am still waiting for TrueSpeed to get into my area (probably never)... in the meantime, nothing changed.

ANd before anyone says thats pathetic - yes I know it is - but Ive been online for 20 years and this is by far the fastest connection Ive ever had! :D

Hasving spent 15 years limping along on a 2 meg connection in Galashiels & 2 years in Kelso this is a revelation!

Ditto, we had almost 20 years at 1.5 meg until the 4G router came along. With the lockdown, it's made video calling much more pleasant....

Methinks we've been upgraded - not bad for Fixed Wireless Access
