    Absolutely none. All the providers are in exactly the same situation.

    That theory probably came from when they used to be the same company.

    Absolutely,
    if you are on ADSL2+ unlimited the 30/10 optical plan is the same price and faster
    If you are on VDSL unlimited the 100/30 optical plan is the same price and faster

    Where's the part where fibre isn't at least the same price? You want 100/30 for the price you can get Adsl 2+ with it's 16-24 down and 0.9 up before you consider it to be the same ? Hardly a rational comparison.
