Well, the Kellys engineer has left and I now have a nice, spanking fast FTTC install through Zen.
I don't know if ours is the first cabinet live in Forres (NSFRS), but I'm the second user live on our cabinet (the first person was the appointment before me). The engineer even moved the master socket and put the modem where I wanted. It's amazing what an offer of a real coffee can do...
Currently getting results on the TBB speed tester of 61.17Mbps which I'm very happy with - will see how it goes over the next few days.

NapoliBill - Which cabinet are you on? I know not all of the Forres cabs are live yet (in fact I walked past one the other day that has only just been stood) so looks like you're one of the lucky ones too.
RobertoS - Nope, that was run on a wired connection. I'll try another one later as I'm on my laptop right now but if it's not great then it could also be the router interfering as I'm on an older Draytek 2820, and I'm fairly sure they are not too great for the higher throughput of 80/20 FTTC.
Not sure which cabinet but I've checked with Zen, Newnet, Plusnet and BT and they all say FTTC is available to me. I live between the golf course and Leanchoil but don't know where my cabinet would be. I seem to remember reading that cabinet 4 was going live so wonder if that is the one I am on.

Yes, I sold my 2820 about 3 months after moving onto Fibre, and noticed a useful increase. The 2820 is really only supposed to handle around 42megabit download, some have seen more, but its an older design now and not really upto the FTTC speeds whilst handling the PPPoE.
