Had an email from TT today offering me Faster 150 Fibre and was wondering if it would be worth trying?
The thing is, my current Fibre with Speed Boost speeds have never quite got up to the minimum guaranteed speed TT gave me (53Mbps). Even after much investigation by Openreach.
What hope do I have that Faster 150 will live up to expectations?
Thanks for any help.
Cheers, Beanz 🙂
This is G. fast I thought you needed to be in say the hot zone in and around the cabinet area as the further away you are you will not be able to get it. If your only getting 53Mbps will you be in this zone ??...I`m right near my BT exchange (it over looks my back garden the green cab` is in the area near me. Im getting as fast as you can from FTTC connection but alas for me its not set up for G.fast which I guess I would be able to get this faster 150 Fibre) so do you know the green cab` you are on and how far away are you from it?
this site should tell you if your on it put your info in https://www.broadbandchecker.btwholesale.com/#/ADSL/AddressHome
I do need some assistance, please.
I would like to know if the GFast service will give me a good speed, despite the fact that my Faster Fibre with Speed Boost seems to have a max sync speed of only around 50Mbps.
I don't want to go through the upgrade process only to find that it won't work.
Thanks for any help.
I've just looked and yes, it does. I'm sure it didn't yesterday.
Anyway, it says typical 111 - 134 Mbps and a guaranteed minimum of 94Mbps.
Sorry to be a bit sceptical, but my Faster Fibre with Speed Boost has never quite got up to the minimum guaranteed speed.
In your experience, does the GFast service work well on sub-standard lines?
As far as I am aware with all orders you have a cooling off period of 20 days if you upgrade to Gfast, As long as the deal you are on is available then you should be able to roll back to the current deal
Gfast should give you the minimum of 95 mbps according to our system.
Hope that helps
Thanks for the reply.
That's the problem, I don't know if the deal I'm on now is still available. So, I'm a bit reluctant to go for G.Fast in case it doesn't work very well on my line. I've had trouble getting the Speed Boosted Faster Fibre up to the minimum speed as it is.
Also, I'm confused about the £60 set-up fee. Is there one?
When I click on the email link, it takes me to a page that says 'no set-up fee'. Then it seems to add it on to the total later, as well as the £4 TV fee which I cancelled years ago!
Do you know the true cost?
Hi again bigkenny,
I did answer this after your previous reply.
Anyway, I'm nearly 400m away from the cabinet. Which makes me nervous about even trying G.Fast. However, the minimum guaranteed speed is 94Mbps. That would be roughly double what I can get on Faster Fibre with Speed Boost. I would be happy with that.
Still a bit sceptical I'm afraid.
Sorry for the delay.
You are on our current faster fibre deal which will be available, Minimum speed is what we have to guarantee, if its not reached then we can book an engineer to go out.
There is a setup fee unfortunately as an engineer is required to carry our other work and complete the setup. Again if the speeds at go live, are not up to standard that engineer will be required to fix it.
