From 2675kbps to 14892kbps in 48 hours


[link to this post]
 
Just had to tell you about the problems I have had with my old supplier.
Been with BT for almost 2 years, in that time, the best speed I have ever had was 6250 kbps and that lasted for about an hours one day back in march.
Contacted BT on several occassions about the poor speeds, only to be told it was my equipment that was at fault.

So two days ago i switched to a new supplier, my speed at anytime, is never below 12000 kbps and as of writing this letter it is sat at 15230 kbps.

The equipment is the same, the line in is the same and I live 1/2 mile from the exchange. The new service I am receiving is costing me £24.99/month and includes line rental and all Landline calls to any number at any time and still kepy my old phone number

BT ! Pfffft

In the exchange? Before you were using BT; now you are using LLU.

Is exchange 21CN enabled? What exchange?

Hello Dennis

Can i first start by saying that I am not working for, being paid by, nor have any reason to push the company that I am going to mention, However, you asked the question so will answer it truthfully.

I took up an offer by a company called The Utility warehouse. They have taken over my Gas/Electricity/Mobile Phones (x2), internet and phone calls. I believe the internet connection is now handled ny "Opal".
They sent me a plug and play Router which automatically configured itself and I was on line in seconds.
I just fail to see how the same phone line that I was using under BT can supply almost treble the download speed.

BT were charging me £39.50 for line rental/ broadband and free evening and weekend calls. When i told them I was leaving to go to Utility Warehouse they immediately said on the phone that they could cut my bill to £25.99 + Vat.
They had no answer when I told them UW were supplying line rental/broadband and free calls to any landline at anytime for £24.99.

So please dont take this as a plug for UW, I have no reason to do that, I simply think for what they offer compared to BT they cannot be beaten and the proof is in the pudding.

Cheers Dennis.

You know what a telephone exchange is, don't you?

Just tell us the district where you live and we might be able to answer your original Q.
