Available now! I just signed up, You can check their website to see what speeds you'll actually get, I got the option of 31meg download and 7meg upload which I'm more then happy with (was going to switch to Be broadband for roughly the same price)

This is currently the fastest upload in the uk which I've been waiting for some time, BT said I wouldnt have no downtime switching over too which was a massive bonus for me.

Quidco offer £50 cashback too, its currently not being tracked for me yet. Enjoy!

Not available in my area dammit, will stick with 8meg down and 800k up Enjoy the speed

(18 month contract) your stuck into a 18 month contract on this aswell.

My estimated speed 2meg about what I get with Tiscali now.

Not available for me, however they seem to have accidentally added a '1' onto the front of my expected connection speed of 4....my 4rse.

March next year for my area. Guess i'll have to put up with my 18.5mb line a little longer...

See when we're planning to come to your area:

I think you'll find if your exchange is upgrading then you'll get these speeds across any phoneline provided it's BT based so you don't HAVE to be with BT to get these speeds, though your actual ISP might take a little longer to jump on the bandwagon and set it up properly. Still, after my experiences with BT, I think it's worth the wait.

Think BT is still in discussions about opening up the cable service, I don't see them doing it anytime soon. IF they offered cable without a phoneline I might get it but till then what's the point I rarely need a faster connection.

Ive had this a week and have to say I'm so glad I made the upgrade....

Our area only had a max 1.5mb connection before infinity turned up and well I never got anywhere that now i get atleast 20mbps and upwards its awesome. and yeah the upload will be handy too.

I was paying the 24.99 before because I hate being limited on downloads and was endlessly ringing them regarding my speed and how much im paying, they eventually dropped it down to 17.99 (not brill but a bit less) and then they called offering me infinity and I snapped at it.

Only had it a week but no probs so far and if you are unlucky enough to only have a slow connection due to your distance from the exchange this really does make a difference, I was forever cursing whenever my wife decided youtube needed to be watched whilst I was trying to get headshots online (it was that slooooow and LAGGY) - no such problems anymore! Stream away baby...... stream away.

If people are inerested this was my speed test at the weekend:

The first time you download a gig in just under 10 mins is something very special, especially after waiting at upto 2 days before....

Hmmm, their estimated speed is only 75% of what I currently get.

Not in my aread until December 2011...pah...

Will have to live with my 16Mb/s Download and 1.5Mb/s upload...
Can't get virgin in my street either, so am stuck at this rate for now...

It will be available in my area, however I currently only seem to be getting 2.5 mbps downwards and not the suggested 8!

So my exchange was due to be enabled on 30th September, yet my top speed is 4mb...

Wait for the expiry crowd to come online saying this is not nationwide, hence cold and expired...8)

hmm temp seems to be going high to low alot, fact of the matter is this is a good deal, So far everyone who has it have been receiving good speeds (that I read about) and I think people should be more aware of it as I would have switched over earlier.

Just cause its not in your area doesnt mean its not a good deal either :P

Totally agree...However I have no control on the other users on this site that are expiry trigger happy...

Voted HOT...Just wished I didn't have to wait until Xmas 2011...Even little villages around me are going to be enabled before me.

I'm on Virgin Media and weirdly got about 100 mbps for just a day once.

The only speed test website that tracked it accurately was broadbandspeedchecker.co.uk/.

I would not deal with BT at any cost, especially on an 18 month contract.

No thanks.

Yes, that's happened to me a few times over the years - the modem speed becomes uncapped - it happens when the modem fails to download the speed limit correctly - only ever lasted 12 hours though.

I actually get better upload speeds on my 3g dongle (1M upload) than on my VM connection !

Your download and upload is no doubt great but ping is a bit high for less than 50 mile distance. I would be expecting less than 30ms for normal line.

OT: Just tested my work ISP and its a bit odd!

Good old BT, upgrading everyone else from 8 to 40 meg while I'm stuck on 3. But they are upping my exchange to 3.5 Mbps next year. Woop-de-****ing-do.

BT Infinity fair usage policy states that if you go over their fair usage limit, you get throttled down to just 1mbps. That I think is really really bad. I'll post the link to this as soon as I find it.
Do correct me if I'm wrong.

BT Infinity Option 1 40GB
BT Infinity Option 2 Unlimited*

* Subject to Network Management


B. Network Management
4. What is BT's Traffic Management Policy?

BT continuously monitors network performance and reduces the speed available to very heavy users (typically less than 1 per cent of all customers) during a given month to ensure that the service received by other customers is not impacted through extremely heavy usage by a minority of people.

Customers who are classified as very heavy users will experience significantly reduced speed at peak times (typically 5pm-midnight every day but these times may change depending on the demand on the network) for a period of 30 days, or for as long as very heavy use continues. This applies to customers on all Options.

BT Total Broadband Option 3 and BT Infinity Option 2 allow unlimited downloads and uploads within the monthly rental price, so customers on these products will not be charged for over-use. However, this does not preclude BT from reducing your speed if you are a heavy user in order to protect the experience for the rest of our customers.

We may need to vary the policy from time to time to ensure the best possible experience for all our customers. This site will always be kept up to date with the latest information.

Available in my area now, but BT are asking for £125 for a new phone line and a 18 month contract along with their 'Fair Usage Policy'.
Think I'll stick with Virgin Media for now.

Great offer for people in non VM areas though.

what is the Virgin FUP like? I thought the problem with Virgin is that you have to pay for things like Caller Display and you didn't get free weekend and evening calls like BT?

I am with Be, what are the options with VM like? This looks cheaper than VM.

This is the standard price.

ditto - voted cold. BT standard price for the service, and limited availability at the moment much like the bad old days of ADSL rollout...

It'll be in 10 million homes by 2012.

Woot, I can get 5.5Mbps. Hang on, I already get 8!

Well I can get 31.9Mbps - just under 4 times what I get now on a value package. I think it will be a great service when we can all stream HD TV & Movies direct to our tellys, but for now? I'm not convinced it is currently worth the extra money and contract length for the average Joe.

But let's say we could stream full HD movies at bluray standard. 25-50gb per movie with a fair use limit of 300gb a month is a max of 12 films a month. Speaks for itself really. If you are going to offer bandwidth that high you need to have content that uses it and a data allowance that makes the content constantly available.

Give it a year and it will (hopefully) be significantly cheaper and more worthwhile. Mind you , at the rate the movie industry is moving, give it a decade and we'll have some worthwhile content to stream.

Just seen this, I think the high ping on that reading was a bit off if im honest and may have been due to the wifi signal to this laptop.

im gonna try it with a cable this weekend. the xbox loves it, sucked down the crysis BETA in bout 10 mins last night (1.5GB) thats all I want really, the ability to do more than one thing online and not wait the best part of a week to get big files!!!

Only wish they wouldn't so harshly throttle torrenting, I genuinely only get tv shows aired in america and its painful slow when I get home that i've given up....

BT Fair usage is 300GB, one of the highest in the market...
