I recently had the unfortunate experience of subscribing to BT's fibre service, and I feel compelled to share my dissatisfaction with their misleading representation. Despite the claims of "fibre," BT failed to disclose the crucial fact that the service provided would not be full fibre. This lack of transparency has left me deeply disappointed and frustrated. From the onset, BT marketed their service as "fibre," leading me to believe that I would be enjoying the benefits of a true fibre-optic connection. However, it became evident after installation that the service was, in fact, a hybrid known as Fiber to the Cabinet (FTTC), which uses fibre cables only up to the cabinet and relies on copper wires for the final connection to the premises. This hybrid technology severely restricts the potential speed and reliability that true fibre-optic connections can offer. The absence of clear communication regarding this limitation is highly deceptive. It misleads customers into believing they are receiving a superior service when, in reality, it falls short of the expected standard. As a consumer, I place great importance on accurate information, and BT's failure to disclose the nature of their fibre service is a betrayal of trust. The impact of this misrepresentation became apparent when I noticed a significant disparity between the promised speeds and the actual performance of the service. While BT advertised impressive speeds, my real-world experience was far from satisfactory. The reliance on copper wires resulted in inconsistent speeds, occasional dropouts, and overall unreliability. These issues were exacerbated during peak usage hours when the service struggled to deliver even moderate speeds. In addition to the performance concerns, the lack of full fibre optic connectivity limited the possibilities for future upgrades and advancements. In an age where technology continues to evolve rapidly, it is essential to have infrastructure capable of supporting future demands. Unfortunately, BT's misrepresentation has left me locked into an outdated and subpar service with no clear path for improvement. To make matters worse, BT's customer support failed to address my concerns adequately. When I reached out to discuss the misleading representation, I encountered dismissive responses and a lack of accountability. The indifference displayed by their support team only amplified my disappointment, leaving me feeling undervalued as a customer. In conclusion, BT's misrepresentation of their fibre service by omitting crucial details about its hybrid nature is unacceptable. The resulting subpar performance, limitations, and lack of accountability from their customer support team have left me deeply dissatisfied. I strongly advise potential customers to exercise caution and thoroughly research the specifics of BT's fibre service before making a decision. It is crucial to seek out providers that are transparent and upfront about the type of connection they offer to avoid the frustration and disappointment that I have experienced
