Updated BT ADSL Checker


[link to this post]
 
Now my FTTC date has now changed to 31st December, great! frown Also the adsl checker predicts I should recieve 32.4Mbps down and upstream line speed of 7.5Mbps. According to those predictions what would I recieve in practice?

My FTTC cab date has changed to 31st December also. This is now the 3rd date change (originally 31st June, then 31st September and now 31st December). However the cabinet was installed a few weeks before the end of June. The cabinet is not humming yet though so I guess that's the reason for the delay and it being pushed back to another placeholder date.

Anyway, in regard to your question, from what I read the wholesale checker can be a little conservative with its speed estimates and most cases you can expect a speed around that or a little higher?

And I have a FTTC CAB (installed a couple of months ago), an exchange supposedly enabled but no service date offered for FTTC on my line!

If I put the postcode in the checker is yes I am FTTC enabled but not the telephone number. The post code is all on the one CAB!

Openreach are very confused over all this!

Delays have been everywhere, just have to continue to wait.

Though why did you leave Virgin before Infinity was working, as estimates given have always slipped back.

I had a much lower download estimate (26.6 if I remember correctly) & I ended up with the full 38717/10000 profile so the checker can be very conservative to say the least.

Ignore the date being changed to December.

Basically. every quarter, the BT wholesale checker simply moves dates on by 3 months if the particular cabinet is not yet live. Once the cab is close to being RFS the date will be amended to a closer, more acurate date rather than they default 31st December.

So basically, because the cab wont be ready in time for 30th September, they just move the date 3 months automatically. This doesn't mean the cabinet deployment has been delayed, just that they are working on a 3month turnaround.

Naturally dates that keep moving back for months on end may have a particular issue as to why that cabinet isn't RFS yet.
