Is there a technical reason why BTw can't improve their IP profile system on 20Cn (isn't it mostly WBC?) so that it can be a percentage of sync as they have done with 21CN?

An engineer told me it was possible but it wouldn't be done for cost reasons and it would put a strain on some parts of the network, is he correct in his hypothesis?

They're phasing out 20Cn - it's so last year. So there's no point in investing in it.

I can imagine the BTw response.

"Certainly, will 50% be ok?"

And there will be plenty of market 1 exchanges with 20cn for some years to come. No point in BT upgrading them to 24 meg when there's no competition.

"exchanges that haven't been upgraded with 21CN will continue to receive IPStream services into 2014 and beyond"

Then it's time Ofcom rearranged the market 1,2 and 3 pricing structure so that users who can get faster 21CN speeds pay more for it than those of us stuck with 20CN snail speeds.

After all you pay more for a Royal Mail first class stamp than you do for 2nd class in the hope it will arrive at the right destination in a faster time tongue

By the time some areas manage to get 2Meg syncs the rest of the country will be getting 200Mbps using second generation fibre optic combinations.
