    Was just wondering if anyone changed back from fibre to adsl say from a
    money angle rather than because it only gave a marginal increase in speed.
    I'm asking as we only hear and have questions on going from adsl to fibre.
    Regards

    I am sure it has happened plenty of times - like when houses are sold for
    example. Less common for the (mostly) enthusiasts who post here!

    Technically the jumpers to the Fibre FTTC box have to physically be
    removed before ADSL will work again (due to filtering)

    I was quoted a lower speed on fibre than i'm already getting on ADSL -
    no incentive to change at all.

    Usually they swap back if the speed increase isn't worth the extra that
    they have to pay for it and/or the reliability of the new faster fibre
    proves to be troublesome on ancient mixed corroded copper aluminium
    circuits. A couple of people have swapped back in my village.
    Most people are after a faster connection. Some businesses would be much
    happier with a stable reliable connection for instance.
