Blackpool FY4 Internet speed. It could be the same in your area

4G from O2 is now available in over 530 UK towns and cities. (Note: NOT IN BLACKPOOL)
The major towns and cities include: Antrim, Bradford, Birmingham,Bournemouth, Bridgend, Brighton, Burnley, Castleford, Coleraine, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Leigh, Liverpool, Livingston, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield, London, Macclesfield, Newtownabbey, Nottingham, Nuneaton, Pontypool, Poole, Portsmouth, Reading, St Albans, Sittingbourne, Southampton and Tamworth.

Having spent hours trying to find hotspots, G4 access or even Fibre optics for FY4, I return to find that although I cannot access any of these conduit suppliers, the companies still bombard me with advertising for services I cannot receive.  That is deceitful, illegal and immoral.

I cannot get fibre as I cannot have Virgin into my home.  Virgin is the only provider that promises 38Mb  speed, but as I cannot get Virgin then the advertising is superfluous.  

The same goes with BT and TalkTalk.  Note carefully that the add states UP TO 17Mb.  That means it can legitimately provide you with smoke signal speeds which nowhere nears the speed it purports to offer, but as the adds don't say it will provide you with fast connection...?  They do not have to provide you with fast connection as Blackpool is still not a fibre connection locality. Therefore the Internet Service Providers cannot provide businesses or individuals with the modern communication it says we have.  And this lie is pertetrated by Councils which covers their own backsides and cares not a jot about the small entrepreneur or moderate business that supply the income for the community to survive.

What is annoying to some who are knowledgeable in such matters, the ADSL, now ancient technology, is still being offered as BROADBAND.

This site allows all users to test the veracity of those TeleSales operatives who pierce our ears on a daily basis.  Do not be suckered into taking a contract which the operators cannot provide.  If you say to the person on the phone, "I have the internet open at the Speedcheck and it says I can only get 5Mb yet you are offering UP TO 17Mb, are you offering MAGIC or true science?"
