    Really? I thought London would've been prioritised for having pretty much anything deemed as 'latest and best'...

    In any case, regardless of fibre, there must be another ISP that can offer you better than 7 MBPS, shurely?

    7 meg is fine for most things. To put it in perspective Netflix recommend you have 5 meg for HD video streaming. 25 meg for Ultra HD.

    Gigabit. There's a lot of gigabit round here; some buildings in Norwich have had gigabit for five years.

    Elsewhere in the county people are struggling to get 5 meg!

    Lol - quality! Do you find it makes any real difference, though? I went from 250 MBPS, to around 600 (I've had 650), but with any of the stuff I was doing, even downloading movies

    Maybe if you're big into gaming?
