Re: FTTC distance from cabinet speed deterioration

The BT line checker must be severely under estimating FTTC speeds then.

I'm around 300m from my cabinet and the checker says 16.3Mbit, I know obviously the line is gonna be longer than that but not THAT much longer......sort it out BT.

48Mbit down - 5.4Mbit up

Better to underestimate than have people kicking and screaming because they don't get what they were 'promised'.

I am new to all this FTTC stuff. Is a cabinet a big green metal box? Theres one next to my house, less than 100metres away.

What sort of speeds would I be able to get?

If it is a BT one, then the 40Meg should be possible for you

No do most people truth be told. That's part of the problem.

It most certainly is. My cabinet is on the other side of the road, my lines is about 25m max which includes going into the old cabinet and back out again. What does the BT checker think I will get? 27Mb.

I'll use it smile
Especially the up speed..
It means (good quality) video conferencing may actually be doable.. whilst still replicating with Lotus notes and browsing the web etc..

Yep it's mostly working from home use for me. Video conferencing, remote desktop assistance, moving large files to home, analysing them, returning them to a remote server, etc.

I am dumping Virgin Media 50M precisely due to their failure to provide better upload - it seems likely I'll have FTTC before they upgrade my upstream.

I asked a BT engineer how far my street cabinet was and he said it was over a mile! This sounds much farther than the norm. I roughly measured the distance, and it is about 1700 metres. Does this mean FTTC will be useless for me with the sharp drop off in speeds?

Can BT put ADSL2+ technology in the street cabinets so that I could get the speeds someone living 1.7 km from their exchange gets with ADSL2+?

At the moment, I get 3mbits on ADSL2+. My exchange is due to get FTTC by summer 2011 (according to the announcement last week).

Cheers,

pj
