Ultra Fast Broadband

I got a flyer through the door this morning, was just about to put it in the recycling when I realised what it was.

They are installing ultra fast broadband down my street in the next couple of days, woohoo.

1gb up and down, can't wait. Is it really sad to be quite excited?

I'd be happy with 500 up and down. Which company is it? Do you know the installation and monthly cost?

I assume that's "fibre to the premises" too?

Once this new round of 'upgrades go out in the next 2 years ish, BT are offering 300/50 'GFAST' through the usual online ordering processes. Ultra Fast 1 and 2. But apparently you can request actual FTTP (actual fibre) instead of the 'GFAST' (DSL) services. I'm curious as to how the heck that request process works.

It's provided through TalkTalk and costs £25 a month for 2 years discounted from £33 a month. There is no installation cost.

I'm already with TalkTalk so hopefully that should mean the upgrade will be smooth.

I live in York and there's a page here about the service. It is indeed FTTP.

https://www.talktalk.co.uk/shop/ufo/broadband

From looking on their facebook page it should be ready to order mid April. Can't wait.

Only thing I need to know now is what router I can use with it - TalkTalk provide one but no doubt it will be poor.

I'm hoping the connection will plug into a cable router so I can buy a good quality one - only thing is, I'll need one with a gigabit Wan port I guess.
