Re: FTTC not worth having. (estimate of 0.1 Mbps)

ADSL24 have a very helpful rep on here, forum name aptly ADSL24, if he doesn't pick up on your post drop him a PM. I'm sure he's said before they will happily connect a customer even if the speed is low.

Don't forget to post back what speed you do get, it'll be helpful to others.


PS. Moving the master socket should improve things and I shouldn't think it'll be a problem, perhaps offer him dinner smile

In reply to a post by ben_g_uk:
The office with our router in it is right next to the pole, Do you think repositioning the NTE in the office with a short dropwire straight from the pole to the NTE would improve the speed? If so do you think I have any chance of convincing the openreach engineer to do this on Monday
Yes, and very probably. You will also need a bit of fiddling at the existing NTE.

Yes, get the NTE as close to the pole as possible and away from any noise source - you have seen what the power circuits can do to your current ADSL speeds.

Even if it means having to rework your phones afterwards, it will be worthwhile.

ok great sounds like I need to push this, but looking at the bits of OpenReach's website that I can access, namely their 'flexible demarcation guide', they do state that:

"Flexible Demarcation applies to the provision of new lines. NO retrospective changes will be made to the NTP of existing lines, other than where judged necessary for engineering reasons when an engineer is called out to repair, convert or relocate a line."

So I'm guessing its down to fate as to whether I get a friendly engineer who will agree to do it!

That is not a BT cabinet
I think this maybe it, which is much further away

Oh

I really hope that you are not correct!

My neighbour (600m down the road) has just signed up with BT infinity and is getting 20mbps. If that really is my nearest cabinet that would mean he is getting 20mb on a 2km line. Does that sound about right?

Is this a cabinet? If so I think it's more likely it is this one, although I doubt the line would follow the road

That doesn't look like a BT cab to me.
