      Talking Moving House?

      Hey all,

      Today my family sold our house. We're moving into a brand new 300,000 development literally down the road.
      Anyway, cutting to the chase, what's the internet connection going to be like?

      I've lived in a Victorian house for 17 years, so I'm used to crappy cabling. Will it be Fibre-Optic?

      Possble, it depends whether the exchange has been upgraded. At the moment you can't get this with Sky so you would have to change providers.

      Don't be fooled into thinking that as it is a new house you will have no problems. Many new builds throw up more problems than older houses.

      The speed you get will depend on your line length, if it is shorter, you should do better. If it is longer you could do worse. Remember to that being nearer to the exchange does not mean your line is shorter, depending on how it is routed, it could be longer than your previous line. Unfortunately, no will can say how you will do until you plug the router in.
