Im happy with my current service from TalkTalk on the up to 8mb package. When I logged in it asked me if I wanted to upgrade to the above product, can do up to 40 or 80mb (10 / 15 month) + 30 engineer charge.

Question is, has anyone on here paid for it and reaped the benefits or is it just marketing shite, as when I try all the other ISP's everyone says I am not eligible for such a product

Not marketing hype. Fibre gives much more reliable numbers. Go onto bt infinity web site and it will tell you what to expect.

All comes down to if you want to pay the premium for it

Well if it makes a proper difference I currently pay 14.50 a month line rental with talktalk, but am going to switch to primus saving 8 a month, so it's only really going to cost another 2 a month for superfast broadband.

Im wondering if I pay this engineer charge will the 'hardware' (read as, flicking a switch in the green box ) translate to anoeth provider should O2 for example prove to be cheaper in the future or am I going to be locked into TalkTalk...

Had BT infinity installed this morning.

Engineer fits a new wall socket and you have a separate modem for the fibre optic before your homehub.

Gone from 4mb to 30mb for no extra a month. Can't grumble with that.

I'd get infinity if they didn't throttle torrents so bad
