Moving to PN - Some pre-move advice please


[link to this post]
 
Hi All.

Currently on O2/BE and looking to move to PN due to the Sky factor.

Couple of question.
My current synch speeds are 50% of my available broadband speed. Will this be the same on Fibre?. Estimated speeds is 38mb, but I treat that with the same 'estimate' terminology O2 gave me (20mb @ 10mb), so with my line stats below, would I get anything close to that?.

Second question. I live in an old house, 1930s, and the phone cabling looks pretty old. During the years we've had the original wiring from BT, and switched to Sky phone many years ago. Is there anything I can do with my wiring/phone/sockets that can improve speeds?.


Thanks in advance.

Available or "estimated"?

Fibre speeds are completely unrelated to ADSL2+ speeds, so the best you can do is go by the Plusnet estimate, and complain/back out if you don't get them.

Yeah thats fair enough. What about prep for the FTTH?. I'm still worried that my phone system at home is a botch job from years gone by, I've had ISDN, BT, Sky etc, and never rewired the internal phone system. Should I be worried, is there something I can do, some prep work, new face plates etc?.

Assuming you haven't noticed noise on the voice side of things you should be ok. The master socket will be modified by the engineer and the VDSL2 signal will be pulled directly from there, or from a new extension off it if required and requested.

The 20 Meg is just the advertised max that O2 can supply to the few who are close to exchange. Your 11 Meg is the speed your particular line will bear due to to your distance to exchange. There is no relationship between the 2 figure except that the latter is always less than the former.

Not strictly true tongue, but sufficient for the purpose. O2 allow it to sync up to 24Mbps if it can. As you said - 10% of customers sync at at least 20Mbps.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 51.8/16.8Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

What's this about FTTH? Do you really mean that, or FTTC? There is a huge difference in the delivery systems at your end.

Edit - You probably mean FTTC, from the 38Mbps estimate. But where did you get that from? It may be the top speed of the product, not an estimate for your line. Just like the O2 20Mbps. Or it could be an actual estimate, depending on where you got it from.
