One of the most common questions to grace our inbox centres around the still evident confusion over ISP choice on Openreach’s (BT) Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based “ultrafast broadband” network, which usually occurs once people realise that it’s not available (yet) from most of their usual haunts.

A new survey of 1,000 broadband customers, conducted by Which?, has revealed that 40% had been with the same ISP for 10 years and only 15% had been with their provider for less than 2 years (likely to reflect recent switchers).

BT‘s consumer division has today announced the start of their annual student broadband deals ahead of the new term, which as per usual feature shorter 9 month contract terms as an option alongside the usual 12 month ones. Sadly they only seem to be offering this on their slower 50Mbps and 67Mbps (FTTC) plans.
