Services are notorious for taking advantage of the uninformed. The longer you stay with one the more likely you'll be paying more. I know my neighbors in the UK who are approaching 90, pay way more than I do b/c I switch from one to another based on rates. Elderly are more likely to stay with what they have and pay more.

As for County Broadband putting in fth. They will only do so if they get pre-orders. I attended several village meetings at the pub (b4 covid) and then 2 virtual meets after. The demographic of those in attendance was 40<60. The preoder is an 18 month contract for 28 quid month for 300, 38 for 600, and 48 for 900. After that the prices rise massively, but we can always go back to ftc. It's a nobrainer to me, but we still have have enough orders.

Ofc there are those that also don't want all of the utility work in the village.
