Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Yes, it's a rather long road. Blooming frustrating, believe me. With a bit of jiggery-pokery on my modem side, I can get about 4 - 4.5 meg if I'm lucky, but usually it's only about 3.5.
Yeah we get around 5Mbps when its dry, when it rains heavy or is very windy ours drops to a point where we loose sync, resulting in slower speeds, where after a few days of non rain we have to then call BT to have our SNR reset back to 6.0 which they are very happy to do, so not all bad.
The exchange has been fibre enabled for a while, so I guess I'll stick it out for a bit and see if there's any movement.
Well your exchange was upgraded and was ready for fibre January 1st 2011 same as our exchange, like I said your being upgraded by BDUK Wales, so you will/should be upgrade, just a matter of when it will be upgraded and go live.
