Re: Why do BT fibre only certain cabs?


[re: creakycopperline] [link to this post]
 
Seeing as you think the rest of us are idiots and BT fans, which a little research might show to be as ridiculous as most of the things you have said, please can you explain why you said:-
so it's 512 kbps till i die eh? thank you BT monopoly free to do as we please market.
The speed test in your sig shows 5.2Mbps using the tbb tester, which works on 1024kbps per Mbps, so that's 5324kbps, and your earlier speedtest.net one showed 5.67Mbps, which will be either 5670kbps or 5806kbps.

I wouldn't call you a troll. They tend to be either intelligent or dangerous.

it's not measured in magabytes they are measured in kilobits, they just say mb's to make it look fast.

You seem to be getting your scalar quantites as well as your bits and bytes confused, your speed test shows a line of 5 MEGA bits per second which is 5000 KILO bits per second.

So your line is showing around the UK average for broadband speed.

So are you going to change your user ID to "not bad average line"?

Actually if you want to be a pedant the tests are probably measured in bytes transferred per second, but as most people would type

5234281 bytes wrong a lot of the time the shortened versions of

5234 Kbps or 5.2 Mbps are used.

Some sites don't use the 1000 multiplier, but the power of 2 version i.e. 1024, which can explain small variations in figures sometimes.

As for your assertion they are using Mega bites to make it look fast - show some proof or shut up.

I am happy for people to discuss, but there does come a point, where one has to question motives, when someone has been corrected, but refuses to even entertain, or ask for further explanation.

Debate the issue and facts, do not try to score points against each other.

This goes for a couple of posts removed, and another removed due to the re-quoting

No! According to your profile speedtest you are getting 5.2 Mbps now! That's 5200 Kbps! Dunno what it'll be when you expire, but probably won't be any less.

Sort your understanding of measurement units out before whining about something you cannot affect.

I would have thought it patently obvious that the majority of posters on a fibre forum would have fibre based connections or be getting connections, and would be discussing the ups and downs of fibre related things.
Yes, it is nice to have a stable 37 Mbps connection and far better than what i was expecting... but it's only been like that the last few weeks since the village cabs went live. Before that i had less than half your speed... I'd say were lucky for OR to have decided to include our village in their rollout, they could have easily omitted us.

I'm sure BT haven't omitted your cab for purely vindictive reasons... much like VM and all the other ISPs haven't decided to build their networks up to your door. They all have reasons for not serving you... if you wrote them they'd all come back with unviable economically, with BT could quite easily be you're unlucky...they have taken the cab originally meant for you, taken pity on our village and used it to give us next generation access, that would be the irony of fate!
