Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 8Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 7Mbps and 8Mbps.


Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 8Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 5.5Mbps and 15Mbps. Our test also indicates that your line could support an estimated ADSL 2+ Annex-M broadband upstream line speed of 1Mbps and downstream line speed of 8Mbps; typically the downstream speed would range between 5.5Mbps and 15Mbps.

Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 31st December 2012. Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed of 32.2Mbps and upstream line speed of 11.5Mbps.

You could just join one of the smaller providers and that will save you a long contract and when your exchange (and then more importantly you cab) has been done, you can request a MAC and move to fibre.

You also have C&W and TT on your exchange and although TT direct would be no good (for loads of reasons) you could choose someone who buys tails from TT Business most of the providers (as we do) should be able to give you a monthly contract, but you will need to pay an activation fee.

As vivaciti says smile.

How much do you download, how many users/games consoles etc., and what's your maximum acceptable spend excluding line rental? Quality rarely comes cheap, though acceptable sometimes does.
