City fibre have been laying ducting for over two years here, breaking virginmedia connections all over the place.
Still only one very small area of the town has access to the city fibre network.
I think it will take a long time before they become relevant here.

Cityfibre are rolling out to a lot of towns at once. This time next year there will be a lot more availability.

Openreach are expanding their FTTP network at a breakneck pace. Not symmetrical like CityFibre but 115Mb up is still twice as fast as VM with headroom to go higher.

Re: Faster upload speeds. aka. full 10% on all packages?

i've had vodafone's fttp for about a year now, in huddersfield on their 200mb/200mb package, while the price is good, the service is good but the router supplied and customer service, well if i'd of only known then...
i moved to another street in the same area and they completely messed up my account billing somehow, it took almost 3 months to sort out, when you call for an issue about the broadband their clueless because you have a fttp product and they go through steps for a adsl line ie. checking your filters or phone cable etc..
the router is probably one of the worse i've ever used, 5ghz devices sometimes don't see the router even if next to it, options to change settings are very basic and often reset to default after a while.... and the kicker is i've still yet to find a suitable replacement which will work with the service.... ones available are quite pricy and at the min out of my price range..
but i still use the service as it's the best for my and that of my family's needs, 4 kids who use the bandwidth like tap water lol
i would however recommend it as i've not really had any service issues and never had a dropped connection and boy is it fast both ways, currently getting about 218MB down and 210MB up

Basically the same here, the ducting on streets near me comes out the ground by lamp posts / telegraph poles and is tied up to them. It's been that way for a year now. I suspect City Fibre is not going to be live in most areas of advertised towns / cities any time soon.
