Title: What a dream...
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!
