Makes sense. There have been a couple of outages for upgrades over the past few months so am hoping that means it may be coming but will wait and see

Suspect Newcastle will take a while the, as it's mostly old NTL (I believe!)

Nope, it's ex-Telewest.

Though that isn't relevant. The regions that already have 1gig are a mix of ex-NTL, C&W and Telewest areas.

Had 50% chance of being right haha... i was just under the impression it'd take longer to upgrade the old telewest areas

Re: 1gig Rollout getting faster

Over the 4 years I have lived here, my IP has been very sticky, and even despite account changes (terminate in my name, sign up in wifes for better deal, and vice versa) has stayed, I assume based on router MAC, except when I changed from a Ubiquiti USG to a UDM-Pro.

Until the last few months, when after short outages it has changed a couple of times. I've spent a lot of time keeping an eye on one.network as Cityfibre are slowly rolling out to Ipswich, and VM seem to be doing quite a few works too.

I'm vaguely hopeful this means Gig:1 soon.
