Can get Full Fibre with BT but not Plusnet?

I live in rural Hampshire, and am getting about 7Mbps download. I think my village was lucky enough to be covered by some initiative which brought in FTTP.

If I check my postcode on the BT website, it says "You can get a Full Fibre connection with Ultrafast Fibre 250" and offers me packages up to 300Mb. If I do the same on the Plusnet website it says "Unlimited Broadband is available in your area. This means you can get an estimated download speed of 5 - 11Mb."

Does that mean I have to leave Plusnet to get FTTP?

I'm afraid the short answer is yes. PlusNet do not currently offer any FTTP products commercially.

 

Currently BT and Zen are the main providers who do FTTP but Sky and TalkTalk are rumered to be launching soon. There are other smaller providers.

Yes sadly as Plusnet do not have any FTTP product yet, don't think PN will ever launch these product. Only BT, Aquiss and Zen will do FTTP.

Plusnet have done a trial of FTTP so I think they will offer it at some point.
