I found out about the scheme, and would possibly have applied except it is only available where there is already a good service - nowhere outside a major city at all.
We would desperately like better broadband - have to make do with 5 x adsl connections to reach the dizzy heights of a 12mb connection and this was only achieved having PAID Openreach EXTRA for an engineer with a REIN meter.Has anyone else tried to track REIN interference in a large building with thousands of electrical circuits, an extensive wireless network, cob walls, and lots of non owned equipment using an AM radio!!.To be fair we were very pleased with the improvements the engineer made but any suggestion you could DIY in these circumstances is ridiculous (even tried to source one the BT engineers scanners).
Tried and still use bonding as the best AVAILABLE solution. No EFM available. Our local exchange is fibre enabled and we are connected direct to the exchange by fibre but cannot get this enabled unless we pay in excess of £550.00 for a 10mb leased line connection (apparently this is subject to survey) but this has improved in the last year from over £700.00 pcm.
Regularly get personally addressed letters offering fibre but surprise, surprise we can't get fibre (stops about a mile away).
Loads of competition to bill us but still only 1 supplier - Openreach!!!!
