    20mp connection. The only time I get the speed I'm paying for is early hours of the morning.

    Enquired re slow optical speed. Received a very lenghty email asking me to do various tests including entering DOS. Unbelievable !!! Sent a Email back expressing my disbelief but unsurprisingly I have not received a reply.

    Having spend countless hours trying to resolve an issue with intermittent broadband connection for more than two months, we eventually got an engineer to confirm that my equipment was not at fault and that there was an outdoor fault somewhere. A temporary cable was installed to bypass a suspect cable under the garden. He arranged for another crew to attend in October to replace the cable for which they are hoping (misguidedly) to dig up the concrete path. They go under the path or not at all and I don't believe the fault is there or the temporary cable would have cured it!

    The fibre optic speeds never reach 20MB which I have paid for, but averages between 10-13MB (download speeds) but about 10MB over wireless. It is expensive for the speed paid for. Should be cheaper by £5 or so per month. Reliability of service is not good as BT but of a sufficient standard that you live with especially if you have to work from home sometimes.
