Default INFL Broadband

Hello all,
We are due to move house onto a new development.
I am informed that INFL is the only option with a choice of 5 ISP's only, non of which I've ever heard of.
After a Goog I find that they are all way more expensive and with a pretty poor service, with rubbish routers and no option to change the router.
It seems this is a deal been struck with the developers (money no doubt) and the INFL providers are not allowing access to their tunnels to any one else.
It's seems odd that in this day of age the consumer has no rights as to the choice of provider and that these companies are outside Ofcom regulations.

They may be outside of Ofcom's regs but trading standards and competition laws are something else.

I'd make enquiries about this unfair practice.

Hi Cantrel,
From what I can gleen. The new roads on the development belong to the developers. They don't have to give permission to anyone to dig up the road if they don't want and the infl companies won't give access to their installation.
When I called my present isp to ask if I could still transfer with them they said no and that they were getting more and more of these cases.
I'm thinking if they can't challenge it with their corporate clout, seems like a water tight contract they've cooked up.
Many thanks to you.

For anyone like me who has never heard of INFL (Independent Fibre Networks) before, there's more info here:

IFNL - Home

IFNL - Choice & Service Providers - Residents/Businesses

I'd never heard of any of the 5 ISPs shown either!

Are you committed to moving there - that could be your clout.

Hello shiny,
Never heard of INFL either before today, even more surprised at the list of 5 silly named providers, one of which only has a web page with a phone number.


Cantrel,
Completely committed and unable to exist without the internet :-) aren't we all ?
Not seen any good reviews on this, but hey ho, you never know.

Many thanks to you both. I hope you are making hay x
