Muppets Guide?


[link to this post]
 
I confess I am uneducated in the world of broadband and was wondering if there is a guide to the jargon?

I understand that when an exchange has been unbundled it means that ISP's other than BT can install there own equipment. but I don't really understand much else. What does LLU mean? What does Market 1/2/3 mean?

how to your know if you are one ADSL or ADSL2 and what's the difference?

Browse my website.

After that you can get far more detail on everything from the excellent Kitz and samknows sites, but they are not Muppets Guides, which is why I did mine. I do have links in places to important bits such as interleaving.

You do ask two specific questions I don't answer on my site frown. I shall have to add the answers to it.

Market 1/2/3 is an OfCom classification largely dependent on the number of LLU suppliers at an exchange. For this purpose BT Wholesale counts as one. The pricing, and I expect some other, rules applied by Openreach are different.

To see how to identify ADSL/ADSL2+ see this Wiki page. There have been comments that it isn't 100% accurate, but it is certainly adequate for my purposes.
