Win a PS4 or the latest iPad with the FTTH Council Europe
Tuesday 17 December 2013 12:03:16 by Andrew Ferguson

They say a picture speaks a 1000 words, so we have no idea how many words are conveyed in a one minute video clip, but the FTTH Council Europe is looking for people to submit just that showing how bored their current non-fibre connection is making them, or if you already have a FTTH connection what exciting things the full fibre service lets you do.

The campaign in running over on the FTTH Council Europe Facebook page and those who enter will be entered into a draw for a Sony PS4 or the latest iPad, full terms and conditions are provided in English, French and German. Even if you feel you don't have the creative juices to come up with something memorable it may be worth a visit to see what those who have access to FTTH are doing with their connections.

The competition runs until January 7th so the Christmas break will be the ideal time to rope in your family to make something interesting, and while you are not likely to produce anything as popular as the infamous Obama, Thorning-Schmidt, Cameron #selfie the way that content on the Internet can go viral means that you never know what impact anything will have until you make it public. Perhaps the perfect combination will be a video of your cat watching a buffering TV image and looking sad, followed by it purring away happily when the connection is good.

Would be nice to get FTTH but Telford and Wrekin Council have stopped BT from doing it, FTTC is all we will get here, That's what you get when the council are in bed with the Cable Company!

Telford and Wrekin after do very well in a our speed test roundups - so there is some evidence that speeds are pretty good for lots of people

It will do well, 90% (more or less) of it is Virgin Media, the T&W council state that we have enough speed so told BT to go away (no planning permission) to install FTTH, all Shropshire around T&W has FTTH, it's only because of the dominant Cable supplier, who happens to hold a monopoly on the cable market supply all of the T&W phone and broadband services, at a cost that most large companies would dream of,.... as they say in the USA "Go Figure"

Are you getting your FTTH and FTTC mixed up? As not aware of all Shropshire around T&W having FTTP i.e. fibre directly inside the property.

Not really, anyway, this is not a forum topic, it's news, "Connecting Shropshire" covers it all.

Will be interesting to see what speed connection these exciting things actually need.
