Hi,

Just been connected a few weeks ago, so can't really provide a long term review yet (I will post a follow up in 6 months) but so far so good!

The main attraction of Gigaclear is obviously the speed of the connection, which other provider gives you a symmetrical 1Gbps link for £69/month? (Speedtest here: http://www.speedtest.net/result/3109387129.png)

In real life, you virtually never reach the 1Gbps (impossible if you are on WiFi), and even wired the remote server is usually the bottleneck. But I'm happily downloading > 400Mbps.

Working from home upload speed as always been a major issue for me (on BT ADSL Pro I was limited to 512Kbps, so roughly 10 times dialup speed). Now I feel light years away! sending very large files in seconds instead of hours...

On an ethical point of view it also feel great to support an innovative company and not a communication giant that is overcharging the taxpayer for subsidised FTTC :-)

If you are lucky enough to be in a covered area, it's a really easy decision.... if not it might be time to move!

Title: No fault!
Hi,

I have been with Andrews & Arnold for a few years now and can't fault them at all.
They have the best technical support I ever encountered, competent, fast and clearly always doing the extra mile (like chasing BT like a Bulldog after a bone).

It's so refreshing to be able to talk to some that actually knows what he is talking about and not some human script reading machine (no rebooting my PC won't fix my router OSPF table... ;-))

The performance are clearly what it says on the tin. Being in a 20CN BT area I'm quite limited to 8Mb but I always had it, without any contention at peak hours.

Really can't fault them at all.

If only every utilities companies we have to interact with could be like Andrews & Arnold

You get why you pay for, they might not the cheapest around (but their Home::1 is still very competitive) but the value is very impressive.
