Should I get my hopes up.


[link to this post]
 
According to Samknows there is no date/plan for FTTC at my exchange.

ADSL24 say different as of the 7th April.

IS there a definitive list anywhere?

I'd be more inclined to trust the ISP over SamKnows.

These are supposed to be definitive:

But my exchange
is not on any of the lists, not on Samknows, no hint anywhere. However... I have a lovely new jumbo green cabinet ~300m from me and I know of two others. One was installed about a month ago, the other two last week.

Should I get my hopes up?

Usually takes a while for the lists/checkers to update.

Beginning to do some research with regard to how you connect. I gather that the modem is supplied with the connection and that you need a router with a wan port to complete the circuit as it were.

I have an Edimax (advanced load balancing router) BR-6626 which I have never actually managed to get to load balance. Does anyone know if this should work with the supplied modem. (Feel free to say I would be wasting my time)

The blurb from the datasheet says:

--------------------------------------------------

Smart Load Balancing
Three load balancing types allow administrators to manage the load
balancing methods best suited to the LAN environment and to maximize
bandwidth across different connections.
High availability with double bandwidth
For small-to-medium size business, Load Balancer is the ideal product.
With Load Balancer, up to 253 users are connected to the Internet with
Double Broadband Speed.
QoS (Quality of Service)
Load Balancer supports QoS for controlling traffic priority. With QoS,
businesses can make the critical traffic or application at high priority and
route first.

Re: Should I get my hopes up. NOW ORDERED


[re: philippercival] [link to this post]
 
Can't wait till next Monday as our cab has finally gone live and I have placed my order.

Was 30th June, then 30th Sept, then suddenly went live last Thursday.

For info before the change.
ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 3992 Kbps 1022 Kbps
Line Attenuation 52.7 dB 6.8 dB
Noise Margin 6.5 dB 6.8 dB
Normally leading to 3.200/0.7 Mbps down/up

Will post again after the changeover.

Gone live today (9:15) and after a little settling down time and a couple of phone calls I think these are my speeds.

32.93Mbits/sec down
11.34 Mbits/sec up

These are calculated from uploading/downloading a 127642213 Byte file to a server, which took 2min 29sec to upload and 31 sec to download. (file size as reported by win7).

According to the BT speedtester my line profile is 38717/10000.

I have no idea how to find my sync speeds as they seem from postings on here to be more difficult to get hold of from the BT modem.

Now very happy (after the calls thank you Vivaciti)

speedtest.net result
