WNHUX - Huxley Cheshire - WBC / 21CN ?


[link to this post]
 
Hi all

This post (from Feb 2015) seems to point to my exchange being upgraded to 21CN in June / July time. This is good news as currently I get around 2.5Mb on my line.

Firstly, can anyone confirm WNHUX is due to get the 21CN upgrade please ? And also, what sort of speed on 21CN would I potentially get on my line - stats below.

Mode ADSL_G.dmt
Traffic Type ATM
Status Up
Link Power State L0
Downstream Upstream
Line Coding (Trellis) On On
SNR Margin (dB) 6.6 19.0
Attenuation (dB) 50.0 31.0
Output Power (dBm) 19.3 12.3
Attainable Rate (Kbps) 4736 952
Rate (Kbps) 3968 448
K (number of bytes in DMT frame) 125 15
R (number of check bytes in RS code word) 10 4
S (RS code word size in DMT frame) 1.00 1.00
D (interleaver depth) 32 8
Delay (msec) 8.00 8.00
INP (DMT symbol) 1.19 0.21
Super Frames 50579693 50579693
Super Frame Errors 156509 1254

Many thanks smile

Upstream will probably double though

Sorry to resurrect an old post but adsl2 has now been made "available" at my exchange, good news indeed.

Will I get automatically be transferred over from my Adsl product or do I need to go through the joy of calling BT ?

Many thanks

If you want it sooner may have to pester, otherwise wait until they order the upgrades in their own sweet time

Price savings to isp mean they will do it at some point

So the latest is the DSL Checker website states -

"There is an open order on your line which is due to complete by 28-Jul-2015."

Will the line drop when this happens and reconnect ? I can't find any other reference on BT website about when the upgrade will be completed.

I did call BT a few days ago only to be told "there is a mass migration scheduled" but they couldn't / wouldn't give me a date.

Thanks again

As the order is most likely a move to the new WBC DSLAM then yes line will drop and reconnect.
