Speed increase.


[link to this post]
 
I have just signed up for Talk Talk fast broadband with a 18 month contract, the guy on the phone said the maximum is 17Mbps and i was getting a steady 10 to 11 Mbps, since signing up my speeds have jumped to 14Mbps, is this a coincidence?

Were you on an ADSL 2+ based service before? It's sometimes normal to get a bit faster on TalkTalk's network which will probably be LLU.Years ago when I was with BeThere I could only get 8 on BT but I got 12mbps on their LLU network

Thanks, I am on the same package (as far as i know) that i was before (see below) i haven't a clue if it is/was ADSL 2+ all i know is the speed seems to have jumped since signing up for the extra 12 months.

Need to see the ADSL2+ line stats, connection speed attenuation and noise margin.

It may be TalkTalk has adopted a 6dB default noise margin compared to the 9dB or sometimes 12dB that people saw previously. The lower noise margin allows for a little more download speed, with the slightly increased risk of resyncs.

If you are on LLU that also a bonus as TT can control the line with near instant results for the above (unless there are plenty of commands being sent, which in 2016 would be unlikely as more people are on FTTC.

Thanks 23Prince, i was thinking of going for fibre but i have been told page loading times would not change significantly so i may just stay put and save the connection fee, i imagine eventually they will put all customers on fibre free of charge as they have nothing else to tempt customers away from other suppliers.

No probs fella smile

Yes you are more than likely on Talk Talk LLU which, in my experience anyway has always given me more speed than ADSL Wholesale connections (LLU in general, not Talk Talk's)

I am on Talk Talk Business fibre and apart from the connection fee (£50 for a migration or a new line) I use more in a month with phone calls and Data usage than the £31.95 commands from me.

So it's a win win.

There are many people who will connect you for free now and offer a price the same as if not better than LLU.

But if you don't need the faster speed why worry? There are some places like Sky who will also use LLU and will do the broadband for free (as long as you pay line rental) , so the way I see it - as an ADSL customer on LLU or otherwise you are in a good position to get repeated good/free deals.

Thanks again, i have recently signed an 18 month contract with TT so cannot move, having said that i have been with them donkeys years and apart from a few screw ups with direct debit payments have had no problems whatsoever, i do not think i would move unless the offer to migrate was too good to turn down.
