    Default Vodafone Gigacube

    So it took me two years to get a BT line fitted as I live at the end of a lane. Had nothing but problems from day one, wrong guys turning up to install, shit speeds. So a year on o had enough of the 8mb download speeds and sacked off BT and went with a Vodafone Gigacube and as you can see in the picture whooooosh happy as Larry!!!

    I went with the 5G model it cost 50 up front and 50 per month. That comes with unlimited data and 64 connections.

    I think it's a bit of a joke that BT just upgraded their network as their plan for the 21st Century, yet we are barely into the 21st Century and mobile phone broadband pisses all over hardwired connections.

    I have had Ultrafast from BT a week and am getting around 150Mbit out of it. I am the only one in the box though.

    And with this BT are planning to do away with the copper network in 2025. ISDN and PSTN are to be turned off...


    I will believe it when I see it. ISDN is definitely going but I cant see all of the uk's PSTN lines being swapped to FTTP or something else.

    Thanks to AD
