Fast enough for us in the middle of nowhere.
I remember having to redial/reconnect every 2 hours...
...that said I'm with VM so not much has changed
I remember having a faster connection at my parents house in 2000 than I'm currently able to get via a fixed line today...
Fortunately, 4G has been my saviour.
Though it's not the most consistent...
We recently moved to plusnet from timico and it's been good so far - on the with timico's fttc we were getting ~45Mbps down and ~12Mbps up so it's a decent bump (and for less money too which is always nice)
I've had a week of fairly inconsistent results using the EE-provided hardware with their external antenna. A few days of decent speeds, and then intermittent drops to <10MBit down. They talked about network conditions, weather conditions etc - I wasn't entirely convinced.
I took a punt on a new 4G modem/router, a Huawei B525 and everything is fixed, or has been since Thursday anyway.
Down speeds have yet to drop below the low 40s, and up speeds have been hovering just over 10, and latency has dropped from a low 30s best case to the low 20s consistently - oddly with the external antenna attached the speeds are markedly worse and less consistent. Go figure.
