My partner and I are currently in the process of purchasing a house -- being remote workers, the internet speed is paramount.
We checked the postcode for the property we're looking at (TR16 6JX) and everything looks fantastic. However, we then went a bit further and tried to find some phone numbers in this postcode.
We found the following http://www.192.com/places/tr/tr16-6/tr16-6jx/:
* Filtrick Farm Cottages, 01209 216392
* Foxgloves, 01209 214714
For the first, checking based on the address and postcode (using Zen.co.uk), says that we can get:
* Farm: 27.4Mbps download (Min. 16.5Mbps and Max. 35.2Mbps), 5.5Mbps upload
* Foxgloves: 40Mbps download (Min. 27.4Mbps and Max. 54.6Mbps), 8.5Mbps upload
However, if we then check the phone numbers (again using Zen.co.uk), we get:
* Farm: 15.7Mbps download (Min. 6.9Mbps and Max. 21.8Mbps), 0.8Mbps upload
* Foxgloves: 13.1Mbps download (Min. 5.1Mbps and Max. 20Mbps), 0.8Mbps
If I check the actual Openreach service checker for both of the *addresses* https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html, it reports:
* Farm: Clean, high: 35.2; impacted, low: 27.4
* Foxgloves: Clean, high: 54.6; impacted, low: 16.5
And if I try the phone numbers it states it can't find them!!!
Can anyone help me understand this? We don't yet have the phone number of the property we're looking to buy, so we can't check that. Is there anyway for us to be able to estimate what we might get? If we can only get 0.8 up, it means living there won't be possible!
Is there any chance that, if we got Openreach to install a second line, that we might be able to get "better" internet than what is presented currently?
Also, the Openreach "checker" states that both of the addresses in that postcode can get FTTP -- are sales of this still suspended? Or would that be a possibility?
