New FTTP install


[link to this post]
 
Had FTTP installed with BT this morning

Speedtest from http://www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk via wired

18th May 2012 14:03:13 14693 Kbps 96698 Kbps
Any tips?

Engineer screwed up my internal wiring so extensions currently not working and is affecting the BE sync, so have had to raise a complaint with BT

How has the technician screwed up your internal wiring. All he would do is move the three wires from one faceplate to another and nothing else.

You'd think with FTTP he wouldn't need to touch any wiring at all !

If there was ADSL present he may (as I have already heard of) remove the existing filtered face plate and replace it with a standard. And that is the only change I would expect.

Which seems ludicrous since FTTP and ADSL can coexist... As in the OP's case he still has BE ADSL 2+...

They fit a service specific faceplate with a copper to fibre switch

They wired the extensions to the faceplate wrong in the process - I wouldn't mind too much but my BE sync is down 5Mbps if I use the face plate socket, so currently have the BeBox and hpone plugged into the test socket

Not too shabby.

Is the upload on FTTP supposed to be about the same (maybe a little lower) than FTTC?

Very nice results! When you start hitting these sorts of speeds then gigabit router, switch and NIC is required!
