Advantages of FTTP over FTTC or Virgin Media's Coaxial network:

- Low latency (Typically 1-10ms - but will depend on how far away you are from the server and the routing, Compared to 8-30ms on FTTC/Virgin).
- Distance doesn't effect the overall speed (Unlike FTTC)
- Full Fibre - All the way from the exchange to your house compared to your local street cabinet.

Price Workdown:
(39.99[Contract Price]*18-100[£100 Mastercard giftcard reduction -> You can transfer the money to your card])/18 = £34.43

Do BT traffic shape or otherwise throttle the speed after downloading a certain amount?

Nope
The wholesale price of 330mbps has only just dropped at the beginning of this month, id hold out till end of this month or Oct as they will definetly have new pricing for FTTP

saving a few quid over the span of 18+ months should be worth waiting a few weeks
Oooh my new house can have FTTP..... *drools *

It's not going to make a difference since there's been a constant 'special offer' sale on the wholesale price for the past couple of years. The price reduction just brings it down to the sale price.
Not bad I guess, but paying only £4 more for 390mb through Virgin fibre.

2 questions what speed option did you go for and are you testing via wifi. various devices are notorious for having poor wifi cards best test is to use an ethernet cable from the hub. if it nowhere near the package you opted for either try a full reset on the hub or report it

Superfast Fibre Plus
Connected via cat 6 Lan cable to sons gaming pc.
Will try a full reset tomorrow when everyone is out.
Pretty certain it's been the same speed since installation a few months ago. It is however, rock solid. Never drops out but we did upgrade to a Ubiquiti router and WiFi access point.
Still beats FTTC which we had before. 25 down /2 up

But does virgin offer 30mbps up on there 200mbps package And do they cover villages and towns? Not to mention virgin over sells the bandwidth uplink to their cabinets and how unreliable virgin is.

you sure thats FTTP? as the distance to the cabinet is no longer a factor so minimum speeds are looking around 100mb.

the lowest FTTP package i think is like 130mb with a guaranteed (required by ofcom) speed of 80-100mb. you should get some compensation from your provider and if they cant fix it you can exit your contract pretty much asap if you wish

those special offers were based on the previous wholesale price, and hence it having dropped further recently it only makes sense to drop it accordingly 'if' they need more customer uptake.

They spent alot of £££ rolling out these FTTP upgrades so they need to start making ROI soon, and as far as i know, not many people are taking up FTTP at the rate they want. most general public arent even sure what FTTP is tbh so they need more customers to spead the word, and they can only do that if they can get them on board (usually by dropping the prices or more special offers) nevermind sky, talktalk, zen etc will all be using the openreach network to provide their FTTP products any minute now

im getting 60mb atm which is ok for what i need it for tbh, id love to get 150/300 but not willing to pay double when for now it'll only increase my loading time by a few miliseconds.

I asked on thinkbroadband.com about the wholesale pricing decrease, people said it shouldn't effect the 330mbps package since there's been a special offer on for the past couple of years.
Jake4_19/09/2019 23:51

Superfast (50mb/76mb) BT products arent considered FTTP, they might be using the newly FTTP line but those speeds are considered 'superfast' which are the same speeds you can get via FTTC which is what i am currently on, whereas you can only get 150mb+ via FTTP or G.Fast.

FTTP products are the 'ultrafast' products which start from 145mb upwards.

By law they cannot state speeds below 100mbps as ultrafast (what's there current name for the GFast & FTTP tiers).

Here's a screenshot of a FTTP address that can only receive 12mbps over FTTC

Tis kinda strange, is this a newly activated FTTP property though? because my property was activated maybe a few weeks ago and i never got the 'ultrafast' options on my check until around a week ago.

Similar to how newbuild houses wont show up on those postcode address autofill forms until months down the line.

if you dont get this showing up on your availability check then the FTTP isnt fully registered on the openzone/BT system

Here's the special offer pricing
38504958-Cd3v5.jpgIt's going to be £1 cheaper but the prices won't reflect the public pricing untill BT get the bigger providers offering FTTP.

BT is currently making £24 profit just for allowing the adverage 330mbps user that uses 1TB of traffic (costs them £0.27p) and a dynamic IP address (0.20p per month renting or £19~ buying one right now).

It’s guaranteed 100mbps so no idea why if your unhappy you haven’t called them. Also believe if your service itself I.e upgrade from the lower speed to faster speed wasn’t completed properly you can get £5 a day compo.
