I'm interested to know any resident's experiences of full fibre (FTTH) Broadband (where you have had optical fibre cable installed directly into your home), as I am considering signing up.
Please post here or direct message me if you prefer.
Thanks for sharing your experience. It seems from the postings so far that most people have gone with Community Fibre and the different experiences are quite varied across the Estate. It might be interesting to see which building each person is located in to see if the issues are related to specific buildings / parts of the infrastructure.
My understanding is that each provider runs their own fibre cable, so if you switch provider then the existing cable has to be replaced by the new provider. This is one reason that I have so far held off. I understand that this will change once Openreach provide service and can lay a cable that can be reused regardless of future changes in provider. So I would be interested to know if your new provider can confirm if this is the case or not.
I’m in Cuthbert Harrowing
OK - thanks
We have Community Fibre in Hatfield House. We are happy with it especially when, after finding that they had uprated their service speeds, I called them and they doubled our speed to 400Mb at a lower cost. We have had no problem with service interruptions.
Sorry this sounds like an advert but we are happy with the service.
Thanks - that's good to know - seems live a varied experience across the estate, but that some people are getting good speeds and service from them.
