I am looking at purchasing a house that is 2.7km (by road) from its FTTC enabled cabinet.
The DSL checker is showing 10-15mbps for clean and 5-10 for impacted. The ADSL2 download speed is showing as up to 1mbps with a download range of 1-3.5mbps
The problem is the vendor is still on a standard ADSL package (and has not upgraded to BT "Faster Broadband") and does not really use their computer (It would not turn on!). When I tested with a wireless device connected to their router I got a miserable 0.5mbps.
Very concerned that the speed will be less than the 5-10 shown for impacted, never mind the 10-15 clean.
Also does anybody know if I decided to get a leased line at say £500/month, would this cost cover any installation cost or is that built into the lease price? It might be the only workable solution for this house and my SME.
