Good point, there's a guy I know, he'll clear a team brief in the Winter months ! Nice.

Engineer has no say over what BT Retail product you are on, since he has no control over them. He is just installing what he/she has been told to install.

The with fibre under 15Meg is only limited on the upstream to 2Meg.

I understand, still annoys me how arrogant their staff are on the phone -_-
If my line is indeed capable of having a higher download and upload speed, will i be able to make use of it or will i be restricted do you know?

1 cm ... sorry couldn't resist and it's actually not far from the truth "VDSL2 deteriorates quickly from a theoretical maximum of 250 Mbit/s at source" The line profile BT use is actually 'only' capable of ~60Mbps at source. Currently BT cap this to 40Mbps.

The BT estimator is just that and actual speed may be better or worse.

You will be able to use whatever the downstream connects at, just the product is limited to 2Meg on the upstream

Was installed Friday, was getting 37ish down and the 1.65 up (working on getting them to remove the cap).
Although now, my download profile has went down to 31 and my speed are 29-31ish.. =/

I've read that a call to them to increase the profile should fix it, if so do you know the best number for me to call? smile
