We have frequent drop outs, from a few seconds to half an hour, in Osbaldwick.
I don't know whether it is a flaky TalkTalk router or the service itself. It seemed to improve a bit using an old Virginmedia router.
I have ordered a decent TP link router, if still have problems then we will know it is the connection. At present, I am hoping it is just the normal rubbish router that ISPs provide.

Each users had different needs, so only you can decide if its worth it. But I pay the same for UFO as I would do for normal fibre (FTTC) once my current contract expires. So to me it made sense to lock in for the same price, for 24 months, and getting a much faster connection.
I have not tested the speed to the Router, but around the house on WIFI from Router to Device I typically receive 400mbs (before that was about 8mbs). Software updates to my mobile also happen in seconds as opposed to minutes. Its also made a great difference to working at home when using OneDrive, or Teams videocalls. Maybe look at what you are paying now and what you use it for before committing.

I have had UFO since it was launched, was actually a beta tester of UFO before it was officially rolled out in York.
During the testing phase, I had a couple of outages, to be expected as it was testing stage and I wasn't paying for it during testing.
It is VERY reliable and fast, you will love it. I am in Rawcliffe so not far from you, and I never get any slowdowns. It is far more reliable and faster than my old ISP which was C&W/Virgin.
Since it was officially launched after the testing phase, I cannot recall any outages or issues here.

No problem here in York either.
In fact, my internet has never gone down since it was installed nearly two years ago.
OP - what has happened? do you have lights on the white TalkTalk modem etc?

Think you are incorrect regarding York as a whole "Outage", no outage here in York for myself.
Else, I couldn't do this reply using UFO, which I have just done!
