Install complete in Forres


[link to this post]
 
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... tongue

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.

I'm in Elgin and got my install yesterday, 80meg smile. I was the first on the cabinet.

Forres just went live recently so I think you're on of the first tongue

Mine was Kelly's too, have to credit him, fast and effective

Crazy jelos of you two!

I live 2 minutes from Union Terrace in Aberdeen City centre and I can't get FTTC!

I've done the unthinkable.... and switched to TalkTalk! And it's not bad!

Using my own home-made MacPro. Love the Hackintosh!

Use the links on Here http://www.thinkbroadband.com/btavailability.html

If you are served by BT wholesale this will give a reponse with your telephone number.

If you are served by LLU use the address checker on the BT wholesale site.

This is available from the avallability checker on the home page 2nd box left hand menu.

Is that speedtest using wireless? If so, try wired. That's not a healthy graph, even though like the rest of us you are initially gob-smacked at the speed.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 58.7/14.6Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

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. smile

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.

In reply to a post by carrobesit:

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.

James BT Infinity 2 19/09/2012 - Sold 42/6, Now 52/9, Sync @ 55 / 9.5 Mbps @ 470m approx
15 years broadband (1999 ntl: cablemodem, BT FTTC) - Router: Asus RT-AC68U (merlin) - Modem: HG612 unlocked Typical speedtest
