hio77:Andib:Lias:Shoes2468:Lias:michaelmurfy: Why only outside cable areas? What if a customer wants more than the 10mbit upload cable offers when there is UFB available?
Concious business decision to shaft customers maximise value from the HFC network
If you want more upload change ufb via another provider
It's convenient to stay with Vodafone, no one else offers an all in one solution for phone/internet/sky like they do, and while they are not perfect the pro's currently outweigh the con's.
Main con's I really want changed are
A: UFB availability in HFC areas
B: Giving HFC customers equal or better upload in the interim
C: Integrated mobile/fixed/internet/sky bill. Having two separate bills is annoying, and not something I found out about till after I'd switched my mobile back to Vodafone hoping to eliminate an extra bill *sigh*
Allowing me to have UFB for internet and HFC for TV in the same premises would also be a nice to have.. Or better yet UFB and cable into the same premises with a router that auto failed over to cable if UFB went down.
No Need for this, VodafoneTV is delivered over the UFB network.
in the case of being in a HFC area however, would it not be more cost effective for vodafone to provide TV over their existing HFC network rather than paying for the extra bandwidth VFTV would be ontop of the UFB connection?
Ild assume that is why Lias is wording it that way.
That, and now I think of it it would be even nicer if the router(s) could both plug into HFC and UFF.. TV and internet.. one goes down, auto switch to other for both TV and data.. mmmmm redundancy.. *droooooooool*
