I currently have an ADSL1 connection with BT Total Broadband and my connection speed isn't great (because of the length of the line, I assume). BT say they are upgrading the exchange to ADSL2+ 21CN by March 31st at the latest, but the thing is, some LLU providers already offer ADSL2+ services at the moment. My question is will the two provide the same sort of speeds or would one be faster than another? What sort of speed can I expect with ADSL2+? Many thanks, David.
1. ISP: BT Total Broadband, modem speed 2688kbps downstream, 448kbps upstream.
2. Router: BT Home Hub 2, OS: Mac OS X 10.6.6.
3. Line attenuation (Down/Up) 58.0 dB / 31.5 dB, Noise margin (Down/Up) 6.4 dB / 14.0 dB
5. The BT Wholesale checker says: Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial test on your line indicates that it is VERY UNLIKELY you will be able to receive fixed 512Kbps or 256Kbps broadband service due to the very long length of your telephone line. However, your order will be accepted if you still wish to order. An engineer may need to visit who will, where possible, supply the broadband service.
Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 250Kbps; typically the line speed would range between 250Kbps and 1Mbps.
