I would like to get a bit of your experiences in regards to internet speeds throughout France. It will greatly influence the location we will be moving to.
Here in Scotland we live on the outskirts of Fort William and although BT have put in new cabinets to run their second generation broadband.. it is still provided to the end user via copper cable which means that after 1 km, the speed drops significantly. Adding to that the contention and there is really no benefit to sign up for an expensive package which can not be provided.
We are at the moment running a community project, providing an alternative wireless internet connection to rural areas. It has been saving many hospitality businesses from closing, brought peace to many households and is proving to be a crucial request from people wanting to relocate to the area.
How is the situation out there?
