muqiunet, if you live in a block of flats, try to get your neighbours interested, I did a small campaign here and Hyperoptic is at the stage of presenting a proposal to the management to see if the go ahead with an installation.

Take a look at the news story http://www.thinkbroadband.com/news/i/4996.html about FTTP to apartments, which might be helpful.

SE16 6XX here.

Been getting 3.0 mb quite reguarly. But not able to watch iplayer or youtube 'on the fly'.

In the last few days has anyone noticed it has got considerably worse? My O2 connection with Belkin router will barely connect when hard-wired and if you're thinking wi-fi forget it.

Show me the petitions.

Guys!
Giuliano here, SE16 5HT BT of course.
Line never went above 2.5Mb, which sucks!
Is there a petition to sign so? Updates?

SE16 5QT - IP Profile is usually 750kbps, sometimes just 500kbps.

@ Jens

That really doesn't sound right... I'm just around the corner from you and get 4,000+ sync (currently 4,185 which equates to a 3.6Mb IP profile)
You might not be able to get FTTC yet, but that doesn't mean you should settle for speeds like that! Get in touch with your ISP asap!

I work for a company at the City Business Centre near the tunnel in Rotherhithe. We have a BT Business connection.
Down is at 8mbs, up below 1.

We also were told that a local BT hub is due an upgrade and that speed should improve. This was due in December 2011. Nothing happened since.

I have indeed.

In the Canada Water area I get anywhere between 1.5mbps (middle floor, away from windows) and 4.8mbps (top floor with modem strapped to a skylight) - thats using a 21.6mbps ready 3G Huawei device.

It is better than my ADSL connection but the latencies are higher.

I'm pretty much on the verge of accepting a smaller property elsewhere in an area with fibre. It sounds terrible, but the internet connection here is simply unacceptable and after 20 months, I'm at the end of my tether.

I work with production systems at a large firm and need to remote access into work out of hours. Sometimes that is too difficult over here..!

Hi all, I live in SE16 6xx and I just wanted to say that, while the speeds here are quite low, they are not necessarily as bad as some of you seem to be getting. I am on BE, my connection sits at 5mbps and is actually very stable. Please don't settle for what you are getting now and contact your ISPs because there is a reasonable chance that you could get some improvements.

Also, someone mentioned FTTH at Maple Quays, can anyone confirm?
