FTTC at last!!!!


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

Finally!!!! Waiting since Feb to have my cabinet activated, I've managed to place an order for 6th July. Hopefully all will go well. There isn't that much info on longer length lines and the speeds that you get. I'll let peeps know on Wednesday.

That was the initial estimation, the btwholesale site now says the following for this line:

Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed of 8.2Mbps and upstream line speed of 2.9Mbps.

Where does homer79 say that?

when I first got broadband I was syncing about the 4700 mark, since then I've had 3 lightning strikes and its gone down to around 3700 ish. Altho my profile seems stuck at 2500.
Its obvious what route the cable takes to my house, it follows the side of the road line. Its roughly 1km to the cabinet. To the exchange its about a 3.3Km line.
I know people who have 1.2mile lines and get around 14Mbs with adsl 2, I don't know how FTTC compares with distance.

I know it depends on the quality of the line. But every graph for FTTC says that 8.2Mbs should land on a line twice the length of mine.
Plus there shouldn't be much of an issue with cross talk, as you can count the amount of buildings from the cabinet to mine on 2 hands.
