Maybe there are not selling because they are asking too much. Some of the prices you see are silly, if it's priced correctly it will sell

We are up in the mountains in Montferrer & can get around 15 Mbps most of the time even though we only pay for 8. It only really goes down in the storms, & for some strange reason Sunday evenings seem to be a bit slow.

For 6 months we were getting no more than 1.5/2 Mbps we called Orange who told us we were getting 20 although we only pay for 8. After a couple of engineer visits we now get no less than 5 and regularly get 15 hence no buffering.the whole village is the same, think Orange might have upped their game.

You can pay it by text, it is only £2.60, 60p dearer which is a bargain when you consider the time you save waiting at the tolls. The changes to payment has been well advertised I saw it from August.
