I think this is my first post here even though it appears that I have registered in 2005?
Two Years ago we moved into this new build house along with other neighbours into theirs.
We are 20 houses at SN10 2FX and only the first ten could have "Faster Broadband". When BT installed it we could get around 13Mbps (D/L). 2 years later we still can only get that speed. Our cabinet number is 30 which to me sits less than 1 mile away from our street so the D/L speed should be higher, specially when these are all new houses with new copper wires.
BT website claims that I should get 18 to 27 Mbps, but this is not the case.
An engineer was here once checking everything, but has not found any problems. "It is the distance" he said.
Now my question... Will BT ever put a cabinet closer to our group of houses? And if they do will they change us to the closer cabinet? The engineer said that it was very unlikely that they'd move us even if a closer cabinet was available.
Are we all doomed at this postcode?
