Dont know a huge amount about broadband except that ours is woefull and leads to teenagers stropping alot!
If i do a speed test it says we are getting about 1.1mb download speed.
We are in a rural village but i dont believe our local bduk scheme is covering us as we are in an openreach commercial area, whatever that means.
The local exchange is enabled for fibre and the cabinet we are connected to but its quite a distance away hence the rubbish speed.
Reading on the internet ive done the bt dsl line checker .thing and get these figures
Downstream Line Rate(Mbps). Upstream Line Rate(Mbps) Downstream Range(Mbps) Avail Date
WBC ADSL. 2+ Up to 1 -- 1 to 3.5 Available
WBC ADSL 2+ Annex M Up to 1 Up to 0.5 1 to 3.5 Available
ADSL Max Up to 1 -- 0.75 to 2.5 Available
WBC Fixed Rate 0.5 -- -- Available
Fixed Rate 0.5 -- -- Available
Fibre Multicast -- -- -- Available
Copper Multicast -- -- -- Available
So do i look at the thedownstream line rate of up to 1 as the speed we should expect or the downstream range of 1-3.5
As I want to raise the issue with my local bduk scheme (there are around 130 houses in my village with the same problem) i want to know whether the government target minimum speed of 2mb is in relation to the downstream rate or the downstream range. Hope this makes sense.
Thanks for any help you can be
