Re: shambles and deceptive

Can you not come to an agreement with someone and connect through their connection? There are some pretty good line-of-sight extenders available.

Until just before last Christmas, we had appalling broadband, despite near-neighbours having FTTC. I mapped available connectivity and it made no sense whatsoever. A patchwork of individual properties varying from pretty good FTTC through "average" ADSL to so bad they have to apologise. Despite the 100+ properties all being reasonably recent and having good, well-installed ducting throughout. I strongly suspect some mistakes in the original installation.

Openreach decided to provide FTTP to everyone - in the sense of making it available. Sometimes looks as if they have a team permanently here upgrading property after property.

The decent upload speed has made a huge difference.
