finally got fttc


[link to this post]
 
hi all just got my fttc installed, well what can i say its fast, i had a predicted speed of 14.3mbps,, the engineer said i synced at 34, my actual dl speed via newsgroups is 4.19Mbps, 8.8gig file in 30 mins, which is a whopping amount faster than what im used to.

ok so some people think that bt option 3 with fibre is limited to 15mb, i can currently say this is not true, it does look however that i am only getting 1.6 upload so not the 10 that you get on infinity,

i did want the stats from the engineer ( line lenght ) but he didnt have them, all in all a happy bunny.

Sounds great.

If you run a BT speed test you at least get to see the IP Profile smile.

i tried a bt speed test, it asks for the phone number before running the test, i put that in and it says an error occurred have you typed the correct number, which i have so dunno why that wont work.

I think this happens quite often. It can take a day or so for it to start to work frown.

You did choose the FTTC option, not FTTP?

Pretty good.

I assume you mean that's the IP Profile though? (Configured throughput).

Yes, it wouldn't work for me on the first day either.

I don't believe it is the sync. Please copy/paste where it says that.

I believe it is the IP Profile. IP Profile does not = sync. For example, many people are sync'ed at 39700-40000Mbps, and their IP Profile is 38717, the highest there is.
