I'm looking to get upgrade my DSL connection to FTTC with Sky. I've done some checking on the BT Wholesale FTTC checker for my property and was wondering how accurate the results are.
My property is on a new build estate, built around two years ago and comprises of 67 properties. We are all linked back to the same PCP (Cab 4 @ Billingshurst, W. Sx). The cab is aprox 350mtrs from my property.
For my property and my immediate neighbours on one side, the BT checker gives the following:
FTTC Range A - 49.9Mbps Down / 11.8Mbps Up.
When I check using a neighbour's address on the other side of me (30mtrs away), I get:
FTTC Range A - 80.0Mbps Down / 20Mbps Up.
Why the discrepancy of nearly 30Mbps? I was looking at the 80/20 product but based on this, I think I may just go for the 40/10.
On my DSL with Sky I am currently getting:-
16Mbps down / 1Mbps up
23.0dB Attenuatation Down
6.0dB SNR Down
The line is rock solid, PPP session up for 16wks with no errors.
Here is a link to a screenshot from Google Maps showing the following:
C = BT FTTC Cab
X = Myself and neighbours where BT report FTTC speed of 49.9Mbps
N = Neighbour 30mtrs who could get 80Mbps
Current ISP: Sky LLU
Previous ISP: Xilo (via Be LLU) , Zen (for 9 years).
