If you do what's it like (if it's not obvious lol) ?

I've seen quite a few roads that have it already.

Service/reliability/time from laying the fibre to the door to getting voda to connect you and it becoming active ?

Cheers

One can only imagine - no one which I don't believe or those who have it don't use the forum as all is wonderful and no need to post ?

I'm guessing CityFibre will come to Leigh too as part of the FTTH roleout in Southend. 

im guessing/hoping we'll get it in next 6-8 months. We're off Lifstan Way

Sad to hear but believe Leigh is part of the roll out (please check) and will be done sometime. I’m just a fellow end user and can’t wait 👍

Hi

It seems to be a separate network, so no users would be visiting here I expect.

 

Networks...

BT/OpenReach

Virgin Media

CityFibre

OpenReach/Gfast

 

I assume you are on the BT/OpenReach?

 

Gigafast is currently available in the following cities (Southend).

If you don’t live in one of these locations, you can register your interest with us and we’ll let you know when it’s coming to your area.

I wish but I don’t think it’s going to get to me in Leigh-on-Sea. We don’t have cable either here and my house is quite a way from the BT exchange so the max I get on BT Infinity is 38mps

How do you mean a different network ? 
CityFibre are rolling out the infra. 
Vodafone are the provider.

Hi

In the sense that Kingston upon Hull has had it's own telephone network since 1902.

Virgin Media runs it's own network.

CityFibre is independant.

Openreach let's almost anyone use theirs, LLU, even virgin media I believe.

 

So like lots of utilities different companies contract to use their road, rail, pipes, cable, canals or whatever.

 

Therefore the Help Forum could well be hosted elsewhere.

AND I replied exactly and exclusively about Southend.

 

Because I used an example mentioning other places to illustrate "network", and you can register your interest on the cityfibre website, and although Southend is not a city it is getting another network to provide broadband to it population.

 

As far as being blunt ............

 

I refrain from stating the obvious.
