Exchange finally getting 21CN


[link to this post]
 
Not quite Infinity, but that may take a few years yet!

Local exchange is Laurencekirk - small residential village, and I believe the upgraded service goes live at the end of November 2012

http://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange/ESLAK

Currently on ADSL Max package with BT Broadband, syncing at 7mbs, as we are less than 1/2 mile to the exchange, in a modern development - nice steady connection, with no disruption

My question is that whilst I assume there is a potential speed gain with the 21CN upgrade, what sort of real life gains can be expected, and what, if anything, do I need to do with BT to upgrade the account?

We'd need your router stats to be able to say; everyone's different.

Don't bank on that date. These are planned dates and have been known to slip often.

Of course- just nice to see some progress in the exchange - there have been regular works going on lately at the building, so something is certainly happening

The stats make it look like you're next door to the exchange! You should receive the full 24 Mb/s sync.

You're right on top of exchange. On 21CN ADSL2+ you should get the full 24 Meg Down and about 1.2 Meg Up.

Encouraging laugh

Once the exchange upgrade is complete, what do I need to do, if anything, with BT Broadband to get the speed upgrade?

They will nomally upgrade you automatically at no cost, but not straight away. It's cheaper for them to have their customers upgraded in batches when convenient for Openreach scheduling.

You can get an earlier upgrade, but most ISPs are charged extra by Openreach for that, and pass that charge on, about £11 I think.

At least you have a date! We do not even have that yet.
