So this week after 11 years of being in the super slow lane our area and Cabinet got upgraded to FTTC and were able to place an order:
Telephone Number HIDDEN on Exchange LLANYBYDDER is served by Cabinet 4
High Low High Low
FTTC Range A (Clean) 80 76.9 20 20 -- Available
FTTC Range B (Impacted) 80 61.9 20 12.2 -- Available
ADSL Max Up to 1.5 -- 0.5 to 2.5 Available
Fixed Rate 2 -- -- Available
Fibre Multicast -- -- -- 31-May-15
This is my estimate for a 400-450m line
We have ordered the up to 76mb package from Plusnet as we are with them currently for ADSL (2.5 - 3mb sync at 58attenuation). We will be recieving an FTTC router from them and using the openreach supplied modem. However I am hearing stories that this combination is rather bad? Like the OR modem is locked and you cannot see things like line stats and sync speeds and has a generally poor performance.
I would like to know if anyone can recommend a really sick modem/router combo for FTTC?
