Fibre package


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys, now we have fibre available in our village, I was just wondering which package to get. We are currently on an 'upto 17 mb' package and we don't really need anything greater than 17 mb. On my asdl connection we currently get around 2 megabit. As we are only wanting 17 mb, do we keep on the same package and get BT to upgrade us to fibre so we can reach that speed or do we have to buy the 'upto 38 mb' package to get them speeds?

Many thanks,
James

Hello.

Can you pop your number into here http://www.dslchecker.bt.com and post your results. Remove your number before posting them.

If your estimated speed is greater than 15meg then you'll need to order the "up to 38mbps" Infinity 1 package.

Thanks for the reply. Here are the results:

High Low High Low
FTTC Range A (Clean) 59.1 44.4 15.5 10 -- Available
FTTC Range B (Impacted) 47 27.5 12 5.5 -- Available
ADSL Max Up to 1 -- 0.75 to 2.5 Available
Fixed Rate 0.5 -- -- Available

It looks as though we will have to buy the infinity package 1 then.

Yes that's right, it's the "slowest" FTTC package available smile

The difference is night and day, enjoy it!

Just to make things crystal the "up to 17Mbps" package is a different technology to the "up to 38Mbps" package. Your up to 17Mbps will not go faster than 2Mbps despite the changes that have been made. To get the higher speeds you have to upgrade to the FTTC package (up to 38Mbps) and the upgrade is likely to cost more than your current connection.
