Fibre has apparently finally come to me (the joys of living in central London...), so I'm looking at my options to upgrade from broadband that is barely faster than .
I need a telephone landline purely for my burglar alarm monitoring. It seems that some packages don't include a telephone line. Is there a way of getting, say, VOIP to cover this so I can have a line-free internet package, and not pay for it?
Relevant but not useful to the OP - I'm with Virgin and they have just mailed me to say I will be switching to VOIP on 11 May, like it or not. One letter said I wouldn't need a new router, the other one said I didn't, but that they'd send me a dongle to plug my phone into.
I called yesterday to see what's what and I don't need a new router but they are sending me an engineer. Couldn't understand why.
Another letter from them this week announced my costs were going up by about 30% for the coming year...
Any burglar with half an ounce of sense would cut the telephone lines anyway...
Anyway, the only provider who is actually able to connect me to fibre automatically include a phone line anyway, so the question is dead.
I don't really get it; I'm in central London, within the congestion charging zone. I understand that 95% of the UK population has fibre. We've only *just* got it, and most providers won't connect me to it anyway...
>> I'd speak to your alarm company, they probably can switch it to mobile rather than
Yup, its probably upgradeable, and if connected via the net, will offer you shed loads of nice to have features, like remote monitoring, remote reset, activate, disarm, all from the comfort of your mobile phone.
