I was told of this a few months back by an ISP:
GEA-FTTC: Sub-5Mbps DSLAM Profiles - extend the GEA-FTTC product so that the order threshold and FTR are changed from 5M down to 2M.
and shows that this release was due in July 2011.
Was just wondering - is this ever going to happen? I currently get 7Mbps sync when interleaving turned off... get around 5 on speed tests. live 2 miles from cabinet. Surely if it shows 5Mbps for ADSL it should show higher for FTTC?
This is what it says on wholesale checker.
Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial test on your line indicates that your line should be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides a fixed line speed up to 2Mbps.
Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 4Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 3Mbps and 5Mbps.
The actual stable line speed supportable will be determined during the first 10 days of use. This speed may change over time, to ensure line stability is maintained.
If you decide to place an order, a further test will be performed to confirm if your line is suitable for the service you wish to purchase.
Thank you for your interest.
Please note that postcode and address check results are indicative only. Most accurate results can be obtained from a telephone number check.
Note: If you already have a Broadband service enabled on this line and you want to switch service providers, you will need to contact both your current provider and your new provider to get your service changed over new and existing service provider to have this service transferred.
Exchange is definitely enabled and so is cabinet. Before the cabinet was enabled, it said it was due to be enabled with estimated speeds of 100Kbps down and 500Kbps upload, then disappeared after cabinet was enabled.
appreciate the help.
