I've recently checked the fibre speed i can expect to get in my house and it's approx 26.4mbps down and 5.7mbps up..this suggested to me the cabinet was quite a way away. So I went looking for the cabinet listed in the checker and I reckon it's probably 300m as the crow flies, and following the roads about 400-450m.
Looking at this page here: http://www.thinkbroadband.com/guide/fibre-broadband....
It suggests I should be getting closer to 40mbps and 15mps.
Any ideas why the massive difference? The only thing I can think of is there's a restriction at the cabinet, or the route of the cable is rather longwinded and it really is closer to 1km from the house, or the speeds on the page mentioned are not correct.
Any info to help my understanding much appreciated
