Assuming you want it decide on an ISP and place an order. If still in a minimum term and want it before that runs out call your current ISP and ask about an upgrade.

All right for some.  We're not expecting to get fibre until Hell freezes over or 2999, whichever comes later.  Till then we get one pigeon a day (weather permitting)  with a little bundle of bits.

Yeah, decide if you want fibre or not.

Contact the National Fibre Board for advice.

 Hi Yellowbird , have you got your internet connection sorted ? ,  looking at your post count I assume you have a reasonable  connection already  and bear in mind any upgrade will inevitable cost more ,  I would first contact you existing ISP  to check on cost and estimate of the speed you should  get,  they will do that free of charge , then check around with other providers ,

I'm the same where I live.  Talk Talk offered me free Fibre for a year, that's a wonderful offer considering I can't get it here!!

What about using 4G instead.

I keep getting bombarded by BT with offers of their latest hubs and fastest connection.
