Dual and somewhat interlinked query..
I am a Zen FTTC customer since 12/2013 (Zen ADSL in the more distant past and returned after a hiatus via Be and Virgin).
Day 1 was amazing - quick and responsive. Sadly a BT/affiliate engineer appeared to muck with the line at the cabinet a day later and broadband lost for several days involving repeated calls to Zen, repeated checking of BT socket in house (new line had been installed and all peachy for first 24 hours) etc.
Eventually reconnected but never felt quite as quick or responsive and had resolved to switch to another (AAISP mooted as not at home during the day) at year end if only with the hope that some further tinkering somewhere in change process might restore original experience.
A couple of months ago matters appeared to improve without any change on my part. Curious but grateful and made no effort to question.
As contract 12 month point loomed into view I noticed that, firstly, sync speed had returned to 80001 (as per day 1 - had (marginally) reduced on reconnect as above but perceived speed and responsiveness was appreciably reduced). Second, FTTPod now apparently available at my exchange. Intriguingly, my exchange now also Zen LLU enabled (only one in the county incredibly).
My question is whether anyone has a reasonable explanation for experience as above and, separately, whether 330/30 FTTP is available to residential customers at such locations? My reading appears to suggest 110/30 available which seems to be not worthy of the expense.
Finally, as per title what benefits might being at a Zen LLU confer, if any, on FTTC/P?..
Any thoughts gratefully received..
