I have been continually searching for the max speed without lost connections for minimum payments as we are a developed nation & so low down the league for Broadband speeds, I feel it is the least we should expect. I have screamed at ISPs for reasons of lost connections & slow speeds, they promise up to 7mb/s & deliver avg 2-3Mb/s if your lucky? I thought things would change when BT connected fibre from exchange to box? I am aware of everything they spin, like distance from exchange state & age of cabling etc. I was sold on Yorkshires favourite ISP for local people, no change, continual lost connections, generally the same time, buffering, you name it. I did the usual checks & phone calls for help & told no issues, it's the best they can deliver & beside, lost connections can only be investigated by the Mafia sorry BT if I get 6 dropouts in 72hrs, otherwise it was considered not a problem by BT. I went to sort my upgraded mobile phone out at the local T-mobile shop & got the big salesman of the day & I took the bait. I answered all his questions what I was paying, what I was getting for my money & what I thought of my ISP. Then came the hook, I can give you up to 40Mb/s guaranteed for the money your're paying & it'll cost you £2 more, so £34 total including landline. I explained I'm copper from the end of the street to house, only fibre to box, He promised me up to 40Mb/s. Connection day came, EE delivered, copper from box to house, wollop 20Mb/s, never seen it in my life. EE have given me 20Mb/s that is half what they state & percentage wise more than any other ISP with the same cabling, N router & £2 more. How can EE deliver this speed without any changes & all the other providers need fibre from exchange to house. Someone & this includes the media is pulling the wool over the customers eyes!!!!

You miss understand how the current so-called fibre system works. basically the fibre optics goto the green box. the rest is exactly the same as adsl. (From your house to the greenbox) so its more of a hybrid than actual fibre. but that's the asa for you. (The same asa who allows "UNlimited" that is actually quite limited...
