As an O2 user due to be migrated to Sky I am currently looking at some of the alternatives. My telephone exchange and cabinet are both enabled for FTTC, but until recently FTTC never showed up on the BT wholesale checker for my number.
In January of last year James from Adsl24 had this response from Openreach:
"Unfortunately this line does not qualify for FTTC. I've checked with the experts who have confirmed that this circuit has a high DB line loss. Approximately 18db loss on the exchange-side and a further 26db loss on the cabinet-side. Consequently it does not meet the threshold required for FTTC. This line is somewhat unusual in that it has a relatively short exchange-side but a longer cabinet-side. It's not a scenario we see often."
I was wondering if this would still be the case and would I see a speed increase on FTTC?
The checker at the moment shows "Up to 0.1 Downstream Line Rate(Mbps)" and "Up to 0.9 Upstream Line Rate(Mbps)" for WBC FTTC. I sync at 8-10Mbps / 1.2Mbps on O2 llu (SN Margin 6.5db).
