Haven't the days of land-line-based Internet access (Often erroneously called Broadband) passed for most people? You can get Internet access via a mobile phone or a tablet on a 4G signal on typically 8Mb/s, 10GB per month or more, plus unlimited phone calls and texts, for £10 per month, 30 day contract, on all four networks; - EE, O2, three and Vodafone, perhaps via a sub-provider. You can use it almost anywhere with your mobile phone, can access the Internet from computers, laptops and tablets via tethering, and don't get the nuisance phone calls resulting from the multitudinous lists of landline phone numbers.
So, for most, what's the point of a fixed copper or fibre connection?
It will still work during a power cut, unlike a fixed-line based cordless phone and router/modem.
Use an old phone, or cheap phone, with a PAYG SIM for another network, for emergency back-up.
The four networks don't all use the same mast or antenna to cover your house. Try all four with £5 SIMs to find which works best. And don't trust their coverage maps - their claims are based on the best time of day, with fewest people using their network, and don't apply for 24/365.
Who'd have thought it in 2021.
Beware of the small print! They charge an exit fee of £12 whether you are in OR out of your minimum period!
This surely isn’t right?
