I logged onto the router to see if we had a connection and it was all up and running.
The BT Wholesale ADSL checker estimate was for a download speed of 68.4Mbps and upload of up to 20Mbps.
The Draytek 2850n shows a line sync of 79984kbps down and 19999kbps up.
Attainable rate down is 127115kbps and up is 43215kbps. If only Profile 30a was available. This was the fastest the engineer had seen to date.
I suspect this is one of the first connections into the cabinet so it's going to be interesting to see how speeds drop over time as more connections are made. and crosstalk increases.
The Openreach engineer left the modem just in case there were faults which needed sorting ut. He did comment that he liked Draytek routers
It's going to be interesting to see how long it will be before BT offers a wires only product and no longer requires the use of an Openreach modem. I think today's experience was a good sign.
