Looks like they are handing out free speed increases.

I am on Infinity 1 on my backup line, however it's currently connected at below:

Max: Upstream rate = 19112 Kbps, Downstream rate = 69252 Kbps
Bearer: 0, Upstream rate = 19112 Kbps, Downstream rate = 70045 Kbps
Bearer: 1, Upstream rate = 0 Kbps, Downstream rate = 0 Kbps

How interesting! About time they gave out some freebies, IMO!

Meh, as I said it's backup. Amusingly it's actually running faster than the primary after this as it isn't getting a bunch of interference from power line networking and isn't banded.

I'm about 500m of cable from the cabinet and the BT Retail line is running at 4.3 dB margin so I suspect DLM is giving it some latitude.

I'm actually not even remotely bothered by the increase, I'm far more interested in what they are up to. A couple of thoughts come to mind but I need to make some inquiries.

Here we go, all Inf 1 lines which can support greater than 55mbps sync will be going to 80/20 over the next few months

Very odd. Surely they have to cut the price of Infinity 2? Otherwise people out of contract could simply downgrade. (Which would probably mean starting a new minimum term).

When AAISP ditched 40/10, never having offered 55/10, they simultaneously dropped the 80/20 price to the 40/10 one.

I suspect BT may not do that, but you never know. I can feel an email to the CEO coming on.
