Worst Speed?


[link to this post]
 
I just tried my old phone number and got this:

Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 31st December 2012. 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 100Kbps and upstream line speed of 800Kbps.

I didn't know that FTTC could have a speed so slow.

(mine thankfully 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 80Mbps and upstream line speed of 20Mbps.

But is your "old phone number" still at the same address? The move may have caused some confusion on the BT database so that the are giving contradictory information?

BT Infinity 2 - IP profile 77 / 20 - super fast!
Previously BE Unlimited - 21,000 Download 1,200 Upload but then moved house - 6,500 Down, 1Mb/s up - gutted!

No, it is a different address and probably quite a way from a cabinet. I posted here as I was just surprised as I didn't think FTTC could offer such low speeds.

It doesn't. Orders will not be accepted for lines with such an estimate.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 52.9/14.2Mbps @ 600m. - BQM
