As part of a new project, we've gone for BT Business Broadband on what was a standard consumer broadband service.
I know that this change has "taken place", because the service went down last night, and after a couple of hours wrangling with BT they advised us of updated username & password to put into the modem.
I note that there has been no change in the uplink/downlink speeds.
the reason that we changed was to get a better uplink. I believe that consumer uplinks are 448kbps and business uplinks are set to 880kbps or something? I wasnt expecting to get 880 but I was expecting better than the 300kbps we were getting before.
I was expeccting the modem status page to tell me different things about the connection (on the standard service before, it said "Connected. Downstream 4000kbps Upstream 448kbps. these look too neat for real values, so I guessed that it was the theoretical maxima. I expected them to change to "8000 downstream 832 upstream")
here are the
stats from my modemrouter
Ill phone BT in the morning.
