Latest Ofcom postcode data processed


[link to this post]
 
http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/postcode/checker.php

WIll now process the 55MB spreadsheet and give you feedback on the average speeds in a postcode, or whether a form of superfast broadband from Openreach or Virgin Media was available in summer 2012.

Hopefully will help a few people in their quest for more information on broadband across the UK. If Ofcom publish updates and I spot them I will try to update, but doubt we will see anything for a good few months.

Edit because of a typo

You're good smile

This should help people moving around the country get realistic (ie real) speeds.

It seemed that Ofcom only intended to do this once a year from the document.

In my village we have two cables come from the exchange. one can deliver just over 1mb on a good day, the other 5mb.
I sync at just over 5mb yet the rest of my street cant get above 1mb and the attenuation is really high on there lines.

Ooh, nice.

At least I know that Ofcom are aware of both my existence, and the pathetic speed of our broadband...

SG188* OK One or more properties may be slower than 2 Mbps 1.2 Mbps 1.2 Mbps 2 Mbps No


I wish there was some indication of the number of active lines.

Well if you insist on being the only one in your Scottish castle smile what do you expect.

Seems they are not showing some data where number of properties is so few that statistically it would be dangerous. The footnotes I hope cover some of this on my pages.

The data for my postcode is very wrong!
How have they managed to come up with these figures???
It says the maximum for my postcode in summer was 3.2mb with an average of 1.4mb, there was no one in my street that could get over 1mb let alone anywhere near 3mb!

On ADSL1 63.5 db
On ADSL2 78 db
No way you would get anywhere near 3.2mb

seems good for areas I have tried - I note that some of the low speeds clocked are legacy products like 0.5 and 1M accounts that haven't been upgraded to MaxDSL or 21CN or have been kept on an obsolete profile.

MaxDSL - goes as fast as it can and doesn't read the line checker first.

For my postcode, ST72LX, I get:

Postcode Postcode Status Any lines < 2 Mbps Average Speed Median Speed Maximum Speed Superfast Available
ST72LX OK No 16.8 Mbps 18.7 Mbps 23.2 Mbps Yes

However, as far as I know, superfast is not available. Our cabinet (8) is not upgraded and there are no plans that i have been able to identify. Virgin is also not available.

Is it possible to find out what the "yes" is based on?

Well good to see this information FINALLY updated!
My old post code:

One or more properties may be slower than 2 Mbps 7.6 Mbps 5.4 Mbps 14.7 Mbps No


And another one where I get 74/16 Mbit:

>= 30 Mbps 20 Mbps >= 30 Mbps

Thanks for the link, Andrew. Mostly ok for my P Code but the maximum speed is wildly optimistic!

The December 2011 data from Openreach gives
ST72LX ALSAGER FTTC, but not available yet 100% P8

So seems there is or at least was at one time plans to enable cabinet P8 which all the homes in the postcode are connected to.
