Victoria Exchange.


[link to this post]
 
Are not enabled for FTTC, nor have an enable date. So, this exchange serves 20k premises and businesses. So, what's an excuse NOT to enable them for FTTC? I'm stuck on my VM and I ALWAYS have high ping and constant throttling. If I could, I would've moved to BT infinity.

I would not say you are stuck on VM there are lots of options on your exchange with different providers.

I would. My BT line are too long, I will get an average of 6Mbps if I used BT line. I don't want lesser speeds.

Well you are where you are. I assume you are on VM cable, but where do you get the 6Mbps figure from?

If it is from line checkers/estimators there is a fair chance you would get far more. As you would then have several ISPs available who don't throttle, you might get better actual speeds a lot of the time, and decent latency as well.

There are even some who will provide a phone line on monthly contract, and lots that do the broadband monthly. Even some that give you a month money-back trial, which might apply to the phone service as well. That would need checking.

Yes, the ISP I'm looking at is BE Broadband. VM Cable has very high pings in games (Around 40-70 in quake3 based games). Problem is, I have Vonage phone and wireless that are cable only, it wouldn't work for BT line. Also my BT line is not connected so I would have to pay more than £100 for it to be connected. I have a friend who is 100 doors away from me (Same street but terraced house).

6Mbps figure came from line checkers/estimate from BT's wholesale and samknows.

Update: My friend gets 6Mbps from TalkTalk (Opal Telecom), exactly what the checker estimated.

Not sure what you mean by that, but surely the Vonage box plugs into a router? A BT line based ISP would also use a similar router to the Virgin cable one. Or you can get a modem and router separately and create the same setup as Virgin cable's cable modem and router combination.

Also my BT line is not connected so I would have to pay more than £100 for it to be connected.


Try the post office, they can be cheaper and use a 1 month contract, rather than 12.

No guarantee the wires run the same way from your friends house and yours.
