According to www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html
my exchange has the following available:
ADSL Max offering 5.5 Mbps
"Fixed Rate" offering 2 MBPS
There is also a note stating:
"The Stop Sale date for Datastream is from 30-Jun-2012; the Formal Retirement date for Datastream is from 30-Jun-2014."
I'd be grateful if someone could answer the following questions:
1) With my current provider, I get a speed of over 6 Mbps, so presumably am on ADSL max; If I change to a cheaper provider, is there a possibiliy I'll only get "Fixed Rate" with a max speed of 2 Mbps? I suppose I'm asking if there really are two broadband speeds available from the same exchange.
2) Is "Datastream" a third product that is no longer available, or is is the same thing as "Fixed Rate"?
