The cabinet that serves my line has just been enabled recently (Cab 31 Barrow-in-Furness - LCBAR) I'm currently on ADSL Max with EE and get about 4.7 Mbps downstream & 0.38 Mbps upstream. The BT ADSL checker say for me WBC FTTC 19.6 Mbps down & 5 Mbps up. I don't want to seem ungrateful, but I was a bit disappointed to see that that is all I might get, and of course appreciate it will probably be a bit lower for actual throughput/download. I reckon from doing a path route on Google Earth I'm about 650-700 metres from my cabinet. Hard to know the route it actually takes line wise. (I wish the lovely new cab was outside my flat!)
My questions are, how likely am I to get 19.6 Mbps & 5Mbps, could it even be better? I self-admittedly don't have a great set up here, my flat doesn't have an NTE5 master socket, just an ancient line jack box. Would a CP fit one for me as part of the process of getting FTTC? I really want to get FTTC but need to know it's worth it...then convince my wife RE the extra expense involved ? I've been doing her head in about it all for ages!!
Just curious to ask a few questions on this very helpful forum, from you guys who have done it all before, know the procedures, have the knowledge and more importantly are kind enough to share it.
