Increased Upload Speed


[link to this post]
 
Following on from this, it appears that the BT Broadband Availability Checker has been updated;

For Telephone Number 0208446???? on Exchange NORTH FINCHLEY

Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 31st December 2011. 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 33.4Mbps and upstream line speed of 12.3Mbps.

Similar story here, originally the checker estimated ~6Mbps upload and now it's saying just over 11Mbps. However my modem stats tell me my max attainable rate is just over 15Mbps.

28.9Mbps and upstream line speed of 11.5Mbps.

Download not changed so far as I remember, unless it was 27.9Mbps. I currently get 40Mbps.

Downstream has gone up for my postcode. It used to give a range from just over 14 to something in the 20's which had me wondering if I might not meet the minimum 15meg requirement for Infinity, as I'm the furthest house from the cabinet. But it now says downstream line speed between 21.7 to 29.4 Mbps and upstream line speed between 5.2 to 11.7 Mbps.

The cabinet was installed last month but is not live so a check on my phone number gives no mention of FTTC.

Upload not changed for me, but download gone from 11.4 up to 19.4, so if I didn't already have it, I could now get Infinity (if I were to go with BT).

Although I've been constant at 26.5 for last month and a half now.

My upload speed now shows as 12.1Mb so this looks like a widespread change. Download unchanged at 31.2 - I actually get full sync.

Edit:- *snip*
Oh I see now, they've set it at 15Mb up as the default now. Probably in preparation for the next step which is 80Mb/20Mb on the high frequency profile. I wonder if the new products will be 40/15 and 80/20.

My guestimated upload speed has gone from around 8Mb to 11.5Mb up. Download speed remains unchanged.
