Today line is sitting happily at 7.15mbits
Annoyed! Don't need FTTC now! Shame I've already ordered it!
Amazing what a difference a bit of Cat 6 has made.
Decided to put the line back 'as is'. Using some links from robertos site, I've identifed which is my master socket and it is indeed the original one I disconnected - but it's obviously been moved sometime in the last 20 years by the previous owner. My master socket is a pre 1982 one.
When the guy turns up, I'll take him to it. Hopefully he'll wire it up without taking much notice and I'll have fibre at much reduced speeds. Once he's gone, I can then 'sort it out' or alternatively if he's a nice guy who doesn't look like he'll mind I'll show him the new disconnected illegal socket which'll do a top job.
Thanks everyone for your help and advice. I was hoping to leave it to the wife to deal with but I can see it'll probably need my blagging skills.
