VDSL2 - Schedule?


[link to this post]
 
Anyone know if there is a 'fixed' timescale for the VDSL2 rollout by BT which promises to double VDSL speeds? The suggestion made by BT was 'by 2012' but no amount of Googling seems to give me any real timescales...........

No schedule has been released to the public. Can't say for certain that there is one within BT either.

Some peoples FTTC service is syncing at over 60mbps so i think they must be testing it in some parts.

IIRC it requires agreement from Ofcom due to the proposed change to the frequencies being used - presumably to ensure interoperability. So I suspect the lack of a firm date is because it is effectively "pending agreement with Ofcom".

How come Ofcom is always down the throat of BT, but so lax with VM.

Do you have any hard evidence of that ? I query it, as if and when the downstream sync would be more like 80 meg ?

IIRC, the restriction comes from the ANFP, which is governed by the NICC. One of the news websites that reported the 80Mb upgrade also reported the NICC had approved the change a week earlier.

Well tbh only BT speedtester hitting i think it was 68mbps so in theory the sync speed would be 75mbps + probably.
