The BT ADSL checker says nothing about fibre optic becoming available on my line in the future;
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 512Kbps. However, due to the length of your line, an engineer visit may be required, who will, where possible, supply the broadband service.
Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 1Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 750Kbps and 2.5Mbps.
Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 1.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 1Mbps and 3.5Mbps.
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.
Thank you for your interest.
I can actually get just under 3mbps as my line is long. But if I use the talktalk fibre checker it says
TalkTalk Fibre Optic broadband will be available on your line in April 2012.
Your estimated Fibre Optic line speed will be 23.6 Meg download speed and 2 Meg upload.
Compare that to your current download speed of 2.3 Meg.
Does it mean that I will be able to get fibre optic on my line or not? Or is the BT checker information just outdated? I hope I will be able to get it as 3mbps in a house with multiple internet users just doesn't cut it.
