80/20 was activtaed last night on our broadband and was wondering if you guys could answer a few questions for me.
Here is what the Broadband Wholesale Checker says:
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 55.1Mbps and upstream line speed of 13.2Mbps.
Here is what speedtester.bt.com says:
Download speedachieved during the test was - 44.15 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speedsis 12 Mbps-46.75 Mbps .
IP Profile for your line is - 46.75 Mbps
Upload speed achieved during the test was - 6.09Mbps
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 20 Mbps
Current line speed: 20 Mb - This seems a little odd??
I was always under the impression that the broadband wholsale checker is usually very conservative in the predicted speeds, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
Does 80/20 FTTC have a 10 day training period? I have read conflicting information on this subject. Is it likely my speed will increase the longer it remains connected?
Don't get me wrong the speed is great, just wonering if we are likely to get a bit more out of it.
I think I'm about 500 meters from the cabinet, maybe less.
