Re: Everything will be FREE!!
I sympathize. I went through a similar process although I am in the country whilst at the same time being 35 minutes from London Marylebone station. Having a "business" (contractor) I went for a business grade service. They (Vaioni) ate the first 10k of install costs so it cost me about 5k for Openreach to run about 3.5k of fibre underground with approx 400pm for a 100mbps symmetric service. It's still pricey and I work from a lot and love pr0n. Sometimes at the same time lol.
Smut jokes aside, the symmetric nature of the service makes things like backup of multi camera HD CCTV footage viable and proper offsite cloud backups (once the initial seeding was done)
