2MB Max


[link to this post]
 
Hi Broadbanders,

Quick question. As far as I am aware the line to my house will only support 2MBs ADSL. A 'provider' calls me and tells me that they can provide me with 22MBs. Being the natural sceptic that I am I thought i'd check this out before signing up.

I am on Sky ADSL. i think the guy from o2 said his system was ADSL2+

My current speed (during the day at least) is 991Kbs, Att 63db and noise is 6db
Standard sky DG934g router

Fibre is not available to my house (although unofficially an openreach engineer claims to have put it into the green box 50 yards away).

Do we believe the o2 sales guy when he says he can do this ?? Therin lies the question..

he can connect you to an "up to 22M" service just like the one you're on now, and it'll run about the same speed.

The BT Wholesale checker tells you what's available

Scepticism justified, with 63dB attenuation ADSL2+ services will not boost your downstream speed.

On the fibre - if there is a new green cabinet with ventilation slots in it then I'd believe them. If still the same old single street cabinet then the natural sceptic wins again
