Re: 80/20 is coming!

Very unlikely, it is more like a boost, but one you cannot remove unlike the other boosts.

80/20 availability data was made live back in Jan when the profiles were all updated, I guess TT just added a 40meg cap to any results shown that they've now taken off and BTW haven't yet.

I just went live today ! DOI, do you think we will need to finish out the 18 month contract before upgrading ?


Who with TalkTalk? If so then no, the contract will restart again with the new 80meg boost, but the 40meg boost is transferable as Mr S says.

BT retail are not offering this service yet so until they release the 80/20 package and terms no one will know.

I wonder when they'll lift the next cap, go up to 100 or 120. OK, only a small number of people will benefit there, but kinda silly to restrict it.

There is some more information on the link below which also mentions the possibility of a FTTP 80/20 product variant.

We have introduced a large-scale volume offer which provides an 80/20 rental discount and 80/20 connection charge rebate over a two or three year period, depending on the contractual commitment made by eligible CPs. The offer applies to FTTC and could, in future, apply to an FTTP 80/20 product variant, if one is introduced.

Mine showed 76.6 down and 20 up but given my max attainable is well over 120Mbit i found that a bit odd (unless it is showing the max profile)

The estimates are based on 90% of the ports in the cabinet being active.

As more VDSL circuits become active, crosstalk will bring down the sync rates.

Unless all your neighbours are on Virgin Media. wink
