BT have said unable to supply broadband


[link to this post]
 
A friend lives about 5 miles from the exchange and about 1.3miles (all overhead) from the FTTC enabled cabinet. For some time he has had ADSL that was slow <1Mbit but useable. However it recently dropped out and a BT engineer attended and said interference had increased and they could no longer supply any service.

The BT ADSL checker still says ADSL up to 1 Mbit and Fibre at speeds 1.0 - 3.8Mbit are available.

Is it worth a try at Fibre?

I have read somewhere, but I can't find it again, that there are trials or something with BT supplying ADSL service from the cabinet. Does anyone have any details or know if it is likely to be rolled out?

The only other option seems to be satellite, but that is expensive and have huge latency.

Thanks

Tim.

Forget adsl from the cabinet for now

FTTC might or might not work only way to know is to try

I'd suggest 15 Mbps at 1.3 miles to be rare but at these didtances the loop quality variables and rf noise become very variable

I've always gone off the speeds on this page:

Are they inaccurate?

How do you get 15 Mbps for 1.3 miles when the table gives 1500m 15 Mbps

I also note that my line being at 450m and getting 65+mb is somewhat impossible...

Others on here with 500m lines seem to be getting 20mb too much too!

WBC @ 4500m > TP-Link TD-W8968v3 *Ceasing Soon
FTTC @ 450m > HG612 > Asus RT-AC87U *Migrating Soon BQM
FTTN Coming Soon

If an Openreach engineer has condemned the line as unable to support broadband, isn't that end of story?

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

The OR Technician has said it is unable to support ADSL due to noise - he cannot have any idea about FTTC. It will depend on where teh noise is actually coming from and being picked up.
