My exchange is running 15 months late, but looks good to go at the end of the month. I'm not holding my breath, though.

Hi all....i'm a long time lurker but used to post a great deal on the forum. I've recently found out our village has been connected to Fibre To the Cabinet. That's great.....unfortunately I had a serious fall at the beginning of the year, resulting in a serious skull fracture, which means I have no concentration and difficulty in processing details and i'm afraid to say the IDNET page for the new superfast broadband simply defeats me. I don't really want to move ISP, I've only just remembered who they were, but I really need a rough idea exactly how much this will cost me. I don't want any personal contact either with the guy who installs the new Master Socket as I'm just embarking on my speech therapy and very ashamed I can't verbalise things properly. Can anyone help? A rough idea of the cost will be a start but it's a huge mountain to climb for me right now.

Really sorry to hear of your accident and current situation.  I guess it's a slow recovery from that sort of injury, but it sounds like you're lucky to be here, even if you're having a tough time at the moment.   

I was going to try to answer your question, but I don't want to get it wrong and cause confusion, so I'll leave that to someone who knows what they're talking about.

Good luck with the rest of your recovery, and good to see you here again.   :)

Nobody is rushing to help colonelsun it seems and I certainly know nothing about fibre. I would just like to report that my daughter was offered the opportunity to switch to fibre but after due consideration she decided that she could do everything she needed with her existing connection and so she is sticking to copper.

Sorry to hear about your accident. Hope you recover fully, soon.

We're now doing wires-only fibre installations which means that no engineer visit is required. This also means that the setup cost has come down to just £25. You will however need a VDSL router, we can supply a pre-configured Billion router for £52 (£62.40 inc VAT) or you can get one yourself.

Best wishes
Simon

Sigh.  I really should have waited another couple of months.......   :(

Any particular reason you dropped the Zyxels, Simon?  Reliability, security?

Hi Tac

We still stock the Zyxel AMG1302-T10B which is a good PPPoE router but their VDSL router is not as good as the Billion and the Zyxel interface is quite clunky.

Thanks all. But it seems barring a miracle things will only go down hill from here on....thanks to my G.P overdosing me on Ramipril- a blood pressure medication. It looks likely my family will take over internet access and they will be making the decisions for me. But thanks again.

Sorry I seem to have missed this thread, I've been rather preoccupied with my own medical issues. I'm sorry to hear about your accident, I wish you better and hope things improve for you :fingers:
