Slow speeds in a business area


[link to this post]
 
Can anyone shed some light on the Aberdeen Dyce exchange,

It feed both residential and business but the speeds seem terrible, however did check one postcode on the BT checker and it claimed higher speeds but most say it would be around 2mb

Location, location, location if close to the exchange you will get good connection speeds if 6 km away then obviously only slow speeds can be expected due to the way DSL speeds fall off over distance

It has four wholesale providers http://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange/NSDYC

That runway may make for some roundabout wiring. Postcode ?

Understand but my friend is really far away and when you check his code and line, the BT checker comes in around 12mb but other providers say 1-3mb.

AB21 0ER

Can you see much difference with AB21 0HJ as BT checker gives much higher estimate but I'd say the line has to be longer.

I've also been through all this at another location where had really long line and it was say 5-6k and a copper/alu mix, still managed about 2mb.

This exchange in question was meant to be upgraded so surely years ahead, even given the distance, when people close are achieving typical speeds for 17mb, you would expect higher than 2mb?

Upgraded to what?

It is offering ADSL2+ from various providers already, and can see a business on Buchan Road with Entanet getting about 5 Meg, so would suggest that or similar is possible
http://maps.thinkbroadband.com/#!lat=57.200392714633...

The checker is only a crude estimate, and where people have unbundled the line the BT checker does not see connection speed data any more.

It is suck it and see, and talk to other businesses and see what their actual speeds are, and maybe get them to run the speediest and use postcode so it appears on our maps http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html

Upgraded to a bit less rubbish than it used to be I guess? wink

There are some pretty large businesses in the area, no way do they get by on 2-5mb so must have some other solution.

I asked the owner of a smaller business to run a speed test to see what he gets, overall pretty poor in this day and age.....oil capital of Europe!

The first one samknows puts at 1.57 km from the exchange yet gives it 2.5 to 3M estimate. The second at 2,36 km but with much higher speeds.

Google maps puts the road distance of AB21 0ER at 2.1 miles from the exchange which should be good for about 4 Meg. 0HJ is at 2.6 miles.

Doesn't make a lot of sense, the BT Address checker is better than the Postcode checker, in the absence of an actual number to test.

Having to go around the airport is the issue and Samknows is just a radial distance estimate
