21CN WBC status date kept changing - is this normal?


[link to this post]
 
According to Samknows, my exchange had the RFS date set for "21CN WBC" for July 2011.

Then it got changed to end of Sept 2011.

Now it's end of Oct 2011.

Is this normal?

And once it's set up, how long until ISPs can use it to offer me ADSL2+ ?

Thanks,

You have to use this checker as many isp use this one: http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome and once it say ADSL2+ is there, then you can ask your ISP to put you over to BT 21CN ADSL2+ but there will be 7 working days before you are swtiched over.

Thanks. This is what I got after entering my telephone number

Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 5.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 4.5Mbps and 6.5Mbps.

Your exchange is planned to have ADSL2+ by 31st October 2011. Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 6Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 4Mbps and 8Mbps. Our test also indicates that your line could support an estimated ADSL 2+ Annex-M broadband upstream line speed of 1Mbps and downstream line speed of 6Mbps; typically the downstream speed would range between 4Mbps and 8Mbps.


I am currently on ADSL Max and only get 3.3Mbps (the checker above states 5.5Mbps lol)

So it looks like I'll have to wait until end of next month... hopefully the date will not change!

What is your downstream line attenuation db for your ADSL (up to 8 Meg) because ADSL2+ will be an extra line attenuation db between 2db and 3db extra once it goes live.

My ADSL before was 30db 6.5Meg 15.9db SNR and then on ADSL2+ 33db 13.5Meg 3.1db SNR

Mine has been changing as well.

When mine was first announced, it was set for RFS: 30/11/2011.

Last month it went to 31/12/2011

And now it is back to 30/11/2011.

BT are useless, they love to mess us around! Sometimes they removed it off for no explain (I hate when these things happen)

At least with dates of the end of October then November it implies there is an imminent possibility. Quarter-end dates are the bad ones as they are pretty meaningless.
