What speeds do they get on ADSL (i..e what does 'slow' actually mean)?
How do you know that OR don't want to fix it? I imagine OR would want to fix any fault especially if its affecting lots of customers (i.e. in a 'main cable')
But it may simply be the case that OR may not be able to dig up a road - for instance the council would need to give permission - which could take months..
Separation would make no difference to this at all..
Slow is 2Mb/s, sometimes it does get up to 4 now and again. but they used to get 8 until they had the problem.
They was told by their supplier that BTOR is dragging their feet as it is a pretty large job. There are a couple of other people in the street having the same problem by all accounts, i presume most of them have gone for fibre.
But this person says he do not see why he should pay more to get faster speed he do not require when the service he had was working fine until recently.
He would go for fibre if the price was the same as what he is paying now, strange thing is phone is ok, apart from a bit of cracking.
