Apologies if this has been done to death - the BT Infinity speed checker tells that when my exchange (Wandsworth - LSWAN) is converted to FTTC, my broadband's speed "range" will be 36.1 Mbps down and 10.0 up. I'm wondering how exact this is. There's no range quoted, and the only caveat is the words:
"The range is an indication of the speed that other similar lines across the UK have achieved for their broadband service; this is generally within 1-2 Mb higher or lower than your single estimated speed quoted."
Does the fact that no range is quoted mean that I really will get 36.1 +- 1 or 2 Mbps?
Possibly! or maybe Probably!
There are quite a few factors that could affect your connection. In general the estimates are pretty good, but if your neighbour runs a generator or compressor in his garage adjacent to the pole, then you may have some problems!
How far from your Green Cabinet are you? Pace out the distance from House to pole to cabinet and add 20m to it.
