TalkTalk's £1.5bn 3-million home fibre broadband hopes on ice for now

Broadband in the country is crap.

I am about 100 meters from a FTTC cabinet and can't get any speed higher than 1mb as the cabinet is full with no potential for expansion. Two doors up have a connection to a different cabinet with masses of availability but Openreach can't or wont switch us to the new cabinet.

BT's website confirms FTTC is available until you try and order it, when it then offers good old broadband.

At least TT and Sky are honest and confirm only BB is available.

I run the home broadband on a 4G unlimited SIM and MiFi device. 129gb used so far this month (21 days in) but max speed in this area is 4gb when no one else is on their phones and the MiFi device only allows 5 devices to be connected at once.
