I've had my Infinity installed on P10 just now. Took the engineer about 30 minutes as there wasn't any faults on the line. My speed estimate was 51 down and 13 up, but I'm connected at 80 down and 20 up. smile

Fantastic. Good news that it's all gone well. I'm about 0.6 miles from the cabinet so I'm not expecting miracles.

30 Down would be amaze. Checker estimates 36.

Just had the call so I'm next.

My estimate was only 36 down - 80 is super-fast isn't it?
Is that a distance thing then?

I'm getting this!

45 Down, 12 Up

That looks suspiciously like the limit of my AV200 homeplugs. It's the best I ever manage from my NAS.

Everything is just like grease off a stick

I could do that, but I only just upgraded from 85Mbps ones to 200s.

It's quite expensive as I need 6. Kind of fell for the hype thinking that 200s would be fast enough. And a deal came up on 200Mbps twin packs for £28 a little while back. Still nearly a hundred quid though.

They kind of are, I was only expecting mid 30s Mbps from my Infinity, but turns out at the moment getting 40-mumble.

I measure raw throughput with dd/netcat to my NAS over these things at 46Mbps, so unless my broadband gets significantly faster, I dont' think I need to upgrade the home plugs. It's just good enough.

I might make more use of Wireless N.

One day on and my connection has been solid, just about at 40gb downloaded already!

HarpingOn - I have some 200mbps Homeplugs too (they just connect my Sky box to my router), the maximum I've seen the transfer at is 75mbps.
