Big contenders in the broadband chart this week, but who will be #1? Well, not Britain

Agree - time to get rid of copper. Also should be discounts for crap speeds.

But...when they do provide FTTP, and after the inevitable installation cock-ups are sorted, it works quite well. No extra cost. No issues about 'living near the cabinet'. In my case they even switched the phone to fibre (so the hard-wired extension no longer works, but that's another issue!) 300Mbps is the advertised rate, and that's basically what I get. Rather less when I connect via a VPN though, but 50Mbps is pretty good for most things.
