Re: Bridge tap?

Not seen that text at the bottom of the checker before - " Premise environment Bridge Tap Status U"
So difficult to guess what it means, is there any explanation in the text below the checker results? May have to wait for someone with inside knowledge to respond.

Now looking on me mac, and can see the detail ........ I wonder if the 'U' stands for unknown or untested maybe ?

See lower left hand of image. There you should see the heading "Premise environment" and in the column to the right "Status"
The line below reads "Bridge Tap" with a U in the next column headed "Status".

Edit: Perfectly visible as part of the image here on Win 10 using any of Edge, Firefox or Chrome.

I thought youwould like that one whichis why I made certain I copied the text exactly as shown in the graphic.

I suspect that as Zarjaz inimated, U = Unknown, your N = No and there will also be as yet unseen "Y"s for Yes, bridge tapped. Makes me wonder whether OR will react and attempt to correct any Ys.

I feel fairly confident in saying that they will nothing about this unless requested to do so by the CP. Sorting these faults out costs money, money the CP's didn't wish to pay for in the form of engineer installs.

Understood although whether some of those paying next to nothing for their connection will be happy.

My BT estimates have been updated too, with N on the Bridge Tap section.

Clean: High 80 low 65.4 was 66.1
Impacted: High 74.6 low 40.4 was 41.6

Also the ADSL estimates have changed as well but didn't note them, just know they have gone up slightly.

You'd hope it signifies a better capability in automatic testing of the line, which can then feed back at the time of sale.

If ISPs can be given a reliable indication of whether the A range or the B range applies, it gives some scope to upsell an engineer install.
