Sorry I have been AWOL from the forums, I was only made aware of some issues the other day when I contacted Aquiss regards some slowness with my FTTC during the day.
I managed to get my FTTC installed just before they started postponing installs due to the problems at Leam, I was Installed at 8am on the 10th Feb and the engineer reckoned I was the first one to get installed on the cabinet.
II was on 3Mb ADSL2+ with Aquiss and am now on FTTC Business 90 with Aquiss.
When it was installed they tested it and said it was synced at 40Mb down and 10Mb up, and also said that uncapped it was capable of something like 57Mb down and 19Mb up, my house is only 150metres from the street VDSL cabinet.
On the whole since the install its been pretty good and on an evening speedtests are usually showing around 37/38Mb down and 8.5Mb up .... but during the daytime hours it can be very poor (I have had as low as 3Mb down on the speedtests, and 24Mb down at the most during 9 to 5 hours, strangeley uploads tend to show 8.5Mb most of the time) for some reason and I have reported this to Aquiss and Martin has been investigating.
I don't know if this is something related to the problems at the Leamington exchange but it would be nice if speeds were consistent during the day too.
Having said that, even with the slowness during the day its still been a complete game changer for me, I tend to do my uploads and downloads during the night anyway and at that time its been running at almost full speed for me which has been great...... ive done some 20GB+ uploads (I am a photographer) to the USA overnight and they just wouldn't have been possible on 3Mb ADSL2+
Sorry to hear some of you guys have had your installs put back, I hope they get the issues sorted soon for you because for us stuck out on Warwick gates miles from the exchange FTTC is a complete revelation!
