We're looking to buy a house and I've found the telephone number of the property in question. When I use the BT Wholesale checker at:
I get this strange result:
BT BROADBAND AVAILABILITY CHECKER
Telephone Number 016xxxxxxx on Exchange xxxxxxx is served by Cabinet 2
Downstream Line Rate(Mbps)
Upstream Line Rate(Mbps)
High Low High Low
FTTC Range A (Clean) 6.6 2.9 1.2 0.8 -- Available
FTTC Range B (Impacted) 5.4 1.9 1.2 0.5 -- Available
ADSL Max Up to 7 -- 6 to 8 Available
Fixed Rate 2 -- -- Available
Fibre Multicast -- -- -- Available
For all ADSL and WBC Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) services, the stable line rate will be determined during the first 10 days of service usage.
This line does not have left in jumpers.
(sorry for the formatting above).
But in essence, ADSL shows in the range 6 to 8 but FTTC Clean is in the range 2.9 to 6.6. VDSL slower than ADSL?
I *suspect* it's a scenario where OpenReach stuck a cabinet outside the exchange but I can't be sure. It's also a 900 mile round trip for me to go and check
Can anyone offer any advice as to the low predicted FTTC speeds please?
