I’m thinking about getting my dad to move to a 5G based home broadband setup. He’s currently on FTTC with about 50Mb down, but a very unstable connection. We’ve tried speaking to Vodafone to get it sorted but they’ve been rubbish.
He works from home, and runs his own business, so decent broadband is a must (as it is for many people these days).
Annoyingly, FTTP or gfast (I can’t remember which) was installed on a few adjacent estates a couple of years ago, but not on his as the residents association blocked any construction that needed doing
I spoke to a local openreach engineer on Monday and he said there aren’t currently any plans to bring FTTP to the estate.
EE, however, recently installed a 5G mast not so far away.
Outside the house, I can get 5G, but inside the signal is non existent, so I suspect an external antenna would be needed.
The only potential concern I have is that EE are pretty pricey, and he would still need a landline phone.
Has anyone got any advice on the above?
Thanks in advance
That openreach engineer will give you a more honest answer then BT ever will about the Roll out for ftth.
