I've just joined sky from plus net. Fttc is brand new for my exchange. Throughput down doesn't seem brilliant on the speed checkers (around 25 mbit down httpx6, 9.x up) but sync looks ok? In use it feels quite a bit faster, guess because the upload isn't so restrictive anymore and ping is a little better.
Broadband Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 39998 kbps 9999 kbps
Line Attenuation 11.6 dB 0.0 dB
Noise Margin 32.9 dB 34.34 dB
I take it the noise margin being so high is a good thing?
Adsl used to be 21 / 1.2 Mbit so a decent jump esp. The upload.
Bt predict full 80/20 possible but that's a little pricey ATM unless a plus net new customer on a deal..
Adsl was good and would have stuck with that if it wasn't for decent new customer offer, 7.50 for 6 months for the Fttc plus £25 m&s voucher and £80 quidco... Wonder how they make any money out of me who switches every 12 months!
Using my existing Austin Taylor faceplate, billion 7800n as access point and dhcp server and the sky router as a modem on the Ewan port, needed the gbit switch of the 7800n for mede8er use. The 7800n is in the DMz of the sr102.
