Re: FTTC improvement?


[re: R0NSKI] [link to this post]
 
I got this using post code LA1 4DW

Cabinet Probability Uplift Phase Status Type
P11 77% 6.94 7a Part of deployment FTTC (Fiber to the Cabinet)
P56 22% 4.52 7a Part of deployment FTTC (Fiber to the Cabinet)

The same post code on the BTw checker doesnt list FTTC at all.

Address checker for 1 york Road does show 80/20 estimate and cabinet 11. Something isnt adding up.

Where is cabinet 56 physically located?

BT Infinity 2 Since Dec 2012

I think you missed the comment at http://fttc-check.alc.im/
"Please note that these plans aren't 100% acurate and could change."

As the others have said, 100% probability you are not on a cabinet over 1km away and getting full speed.

Don't know where P56 is but it doesn't come up with my Postcode which is LA1 4DP

BT's own estimate for my address is WBC FTTC Up to 67.6 Up to 20

FTTC has been removed from post codes a while ago when they had to change all the dates as it was misleading. People thinking they would be able to get fibre then not when it finally went live so they removed it at least from the majority what I've noticed...

There's a DSLAM on Palatine Ave, LA1 4HD. There also looks like a PCP halfway down York Road, and another on the corner with Palatine by the postbox.

In reply to a post by BatBoy:
There's a DSLAM on Palatine Ave, LA1 4HD. There also looks like a PCP halfway down York Road, and another on the corner with Palatine by the postbox.


Putting that postcode into the Address checker (not the postcode checker)returns a list of addresses within that postcode, that can be selected to get the speed information.

One entry that can be selected gives:
Address STREET SIDE DSLAM CAB NMBAAW, PALATINE AVE, LANCASTER, LA1 4HD on Exchange LANCASTER is served by Cabinet 11

with a speed estimate of 80/20 (like all the addresses I checked on that postcode)

If that DSLAM is served by cabinet 11, then it presumably is the partner for cab 11!

Looks like 11 to me ... http://goo.gl/maps/AMM0U

As for the distance that 80/20 can go...

I'm on a 400 metre line, and that was easily capable of 80/20 when first installed 18 months ago (nearer 90Mbps). If I re-sync'ed now, the effect of crosstalk would drop my speed to 72Mbps - so 400 metres is a very rough guide to the boundary of an 80/20 speed.

I've taken these speed tests so that OP can see what he may get at 1200m because these are from 1900m. Both distances are by road.

You say you're 1900m from cab 11?
