I live at S18 1UY - approx 1km from the exchange where I believe the cabinet I am connected to is located.
I have just had fttc installed, the ADSL checker gave me an estimate of 13.5-20.3, I had hoped for the top end of this since my previous ADSL connection was also at the top of the estimate range.
Much to my disappointment, the stats for my FTTC connection are slower than my ADSL. On ADSL I was getting 13.5 down and 1.2 up, my stats on FTTC are as follows:
Traffic type PTM
DSL synchronization status Up
DSL up time 0
Attainable rate (kbit/s) 12064 1165
SNR margin (dB) 6 6.7
Line attenuation (dB) 34.6 0
Output power (dBmV) 10.8 10.5
This is pretty disappointing really, I was hoping for closer to 20 to make the change worth it, as it is I am paying more for a worse connection. Does anyone have any insight into this, do my stats look correct? My provider is Sky. Interestingly my latency is exactly the same as on ADSL also.
