None of the checking sites show our exchange as FTTC even coming in the next millennium yet we have nice new cabinets in the street that make a humming noise, and have for a while now. I've contacted our ISP, they say they've checked and we're not even a glimmer in the eye of FTTC.
The BT checker says:
Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial test on your line indicates that your line should be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides a fixed line speed up to 2Mbps.
Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 1.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 1Mbps and 3.5Mbps.
Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 2Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 1.5Mbps and 4Mbps. Our test also indicates that your line could support an estimated ADSL 2+ Annex-M broadband upstream line speed of 500Kbps and downstream line speed of 2Mbps; typically the downstream speed would range between 1.5Mbps and 4Mbps.
We actually get about 3.7Kbps down and 0.37 up, so that's pretty close.
SamKnows tells me that we have Digital Region enabled in our area (exchange MYTHN) and I'm wondering if I should look at that as a solution to losing our Broadband?
We have VOIP lines, so would have a phone service. I use Orange and Signal Boost (UMA) phones that give us a decent mobile signal via WiFi. Any further cable theft should not affect us - or so I'm being told...
The only thing I don't have at present is a price for the Digital Region service, despite email to a few providers, none have got back to me.
Should I stick where I am and wait for FTTC or jump onto Digital Region and pay more (I think it is) to keep our office services active?
