They need photographic proof but I don't really want to submit incorrect as they will be able to tell later down the line as it will all be connected up to HQ and would most certainly get sacked along with the fact that I am an honest person and wouldn't feel comfortable, so it needs to be legit

In reply to a post by Marniagni:
I have standard broadband with talk talk and get about 3.6. I have worked from home before without any issues re speed etc and its been pretty consistant and good.


Talktalk are quite conservative with the default downstream SNR set at 12db on ADSL2+ lines. If indeed you have a 12db SNR and you're not too far away from the exchange, then setting the SNR at 3db should take your download speeds beyond 5 Mbps comfortably. Since TT can no longer change the SNR manually, you would need to do this yourself using a router (eg Billion model). Alternatively you may want to consider moving to AAISP, as they can set a 3db downstream SNR on TT lines.

However baby steps first, as others have already said we really need to see your line stats on TT to get a clear idea.

FluidOne FTTP On Demand 330/30 Mbps
Linksys EA9500v2

1. You can do this yourself. Establish which master socket you have

https://help2.talktalk.co.uk/what-test-socket shows you how. It may help to print the page

Connecting your router direct to the test socket eliminates any interference from the house telephone wiring and could well give increased speeds. If it does you'll need to seek further advice about how to cure the fault(s) but you can quote the test socket speeds as these are actual speeds at your home

2. This page about the Billions 7800N may interest you. Although it is no longer made you may be able to find a second hand one which will be worth a try to see what faster speeds it can provide. A new one is an option if things progress but they are expensive. Don't buy new until you establish if fibre is possible

https://www.increasebroadbandspeed.co.uk/billion-7800n

3. If the line is actually 1.2 miles to the exchange fibre may work for you although you may only get 5Mbps to 10Mbps

http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/fibre/4557316-fttc-... may help

While TalkTalk may not be willing to connect you to the fibre system Andrew (Mr Saffron) may be able to help with advice if you ask him. BT have a service, Zen do, and some other I believe. This would get you above the 5Mbps requirement and perhaps by a margin ..

On 'fibre' then goto https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/adsl.htm

Use the Address Checker link at bottom, type in your postcode and click submit, then pick the actual address from the list you get shown and it will show the full set of VDSL2 speed estimates.

NOTE: If you are a really long way from the cabinet it may show no figures at all, or in some cases for people who are closer it is possible there is a mistake and if you think that is the case then you need to tell your postcode and will give it a quick peek and if looks like an error ask you to email so that can pester Openreach to get it fixed.

Further to purchase billion router. The 8800nl r2 is also a vdsl router. Can adjust speed download on adsl but not upload.
Works well on my talktalk line.

Hi,

Thank you for all your help so far, its invaluable.

I think i have ascertained that i can get line bonding. I have checked with the company that i will be working for ( as i will be working remotely) and they have said that line bonding would be ok. I wanted to check with them before committing to this route.

So now i feel i am getting a step closer to resolving it.

However, i am now into "territory unknown".

Do i get another line with the same provider i.e talk talk? or do i get with a different one?

Do i still need one master socket?

Sorry lots of questions as i am flying blind with this.

Thank you so much

You might want to go with a supplier that specialises in line bonding to get a decent solution. I am pretty sure AAISP are one of the preferred suppliers for it. It may not be cheap though. Have a look at AAISP here or another option with AAISP here and here
