Wireless router

4G - Huawei B528

5G - Huawei 5G CPE Pro
Edited by: "seaniboy" 3rd Jul
Is the modem battery or mains?
Might be cheaper buying your own kit and getting the sim only deal for £30 - I'd only recommend this is you're content with 4G as 5G routers are likely to costs hundreds when they are finally released.

Can we buy it separately? It might be cheaper to sign up for their unlimited 5G £30/month plan and stick it into a 5G router. THAT IS if we can already buy a 5G router from somewhere? :/

Well it’s not gone live on on the £30 plan yet (stupid! Should have launched with 5G and slayed the press!)

Any sim can go in any device, but like you said no 5G devices freely available, use/buy a cheap 4G Mifi then 5G router later is the best bet

Better than EE 100GB for £70


Exactly.
Plus, you can still use the unlimited sim only plan with 4G and the price would be quite comparable to Virgin Mobile's unlimited plan.

In any case, it's very good news we now have 3 networks with 4G unlimited plans (Three, Virgin, Vodafone).

Actually it wasn’t BT literally said to Ofcom take it, it did... now run by a third party with many third parties. Profits still go to BT.

Still a shambles though and will take decades not to be. 5G will reach places before BT Fibre ever does. Wonder how many third parties third parties third partieswill have run BT Openreach in the next 20 years lol

Actually it was. BT didn't give Openreach to Ofcom, it voluntarily agreed to form an entirely new company which is still a BT Group subsidiary, much like PlusNet, for example. You are correct though in that profits still go to BT Group.

ofcom.org.uk/abo…ach

"The biggest reform of Openreach in its history is set to conclude, after BT agreed to Ofcom’s requirements for the legal separation of its network division."

Again, BT voluntarily agreed.

"Ofcom announced plans last year, as part of its Digital Communications Review, to overhaul Openreach’s governance and strengthen its independence from BT.

This followed our concerns that BT has retained control of Openreach’s decisions, while other telecoms companies have not been consulted sufficiently on investment plans that affect them."

Exactly it told Ofcom to take it - or be forced to be a provider or network owner not both, that was my point, BT jumped at the chance and said take it to not be split into to several companies, retail, wholesale, Openreach network.

A forced split would mean losing not just Openreach exchanges but all the national pipes & thus Wholesale revenue. It threw Openreach at Ofcom to stop it going further with splitting the group and selling its parts off as new companies. Losing valuable income and the assets really won’t plug BT Groups debts any quicker.

You're way off. It didn't throw Openreach at Ofcom. It retained Openreach but broke it out as an independent company under the group.

It would have been better from BT's perspective to keep it as a proper part of the business but Ofcom argued there was too much room for abuse and not enough room between the two to enable other providers to get fair treatment. Doing this costs BT more.

It threw Openreach to Ofcoms demand - it done nothing itself other than throw it at Ofcom to third party to save the Group being split up.

It doesn’t care who runs it, as long as they remain the owner and gets annual profits. Profits don’t cost BT nothing, just now less of them.

Oh dear indeed, I’ve seen exactly why regulators do this in other countries, it’s not unique to U.K.

You also fail to understand as a independent third party divided from its previous Group owner it’s easier for the gov to buy or force sell at a later date, not that the idiots at BT will have seen that coming or they wouldn’t have agreed to the Ofcom terms. And that can now bought be under market value by the gov than a refusal and split sale to another corporation.

BT walked into the real lions den willingly, blind.

I don’t understand you to know how things work in business esp with gov, this country is so used to selling off than buybacks - but when the national infrastructure is holding the economy and people back governments intervene.

As it’s stands ADSL2+ that can’t support 2015 4K is the minimum standard by late 2020 - set by Gov, and BT agreed to it.

A tiny part of the U.K. will have FTTP by 2026 from BT, whilst CityFibre and Virgin make a laughing stock of the national telecom infrastructure.

If you honestly don’t think that Openreach has been separated from BT under the valid guise of fairness and that’s all you really have no idea, Openreach will become a public asset where the gov gets its investment back year on year and the economy grows because speed is important esp for a country with no alliance to EU.

Selling it to another corporation can’t hold guarantees on future investment, other than in-house gov.

Ah bad me for studying the behaviours & markets of a industry, or few.

Same as I said unlimited Vodafone data was coming, and what happened on the 3rd July ?V delivered what I said it would.

You know twenty years ago I was in charge of £20 million pound asset, worked 15 hrs and cleared £2K a month. A very comfortable life, no one expects disability to suddenly to attack but you can’t plan that kind of things, even the DWP assessment said I was well above average & my disabilities had made a profound impact on my life and financial earning capacity.

Rant & rave, lol.
People just don’t like someone well read and self educated that makes them feel inferior, that’s their problem not mine, I don’t set out to make people feel anything but empowered. Knowledge is power.

I’ve banked 8K on a part time income in a few years, because unlike most I can focus on the most important aspects and decisions in front of me from whatever options are there, I don’t do the easy option I do the most progressive, do it right do it once.

Shame me for being a ‘know-it-all’ I get results. Just look at my profile, bank account & how I keep the trash away, whilst helping the most needy the homeless. I’m such a bad person eh... off with his head.


BT handed Ofcom what it wanted - Openreach as a stand-alone untangled BT company ready to force sell it or takeover, I’m sure the shareholders will be happy when it happens. Because it will happen. Post Brexit the U.K. will need a broadband network BT has never nor never will deliver over its shareholders dividends - fact.

ispreview.co.uk/ind…tml

1/4 of population access FTTP by 2025 isn’t a fit for purpose broadband network for a newly independent country. And that’s not set in stone, it’s a BT promise and we all know BT promises are propaganda.

Managing a £75m network by spending your time on a deals website isn’t managing a network lol.

Let alone not accepting the ultimate reason why you divide Openreach into a stand-alone company in its own right outside BT by removing all its internal red tape ties.
