Re: Why Can't I Get BT Infinity?

I think perhaps BatBoy is right. Are the other flats occupied?

Note the huge difference in the other speeds quoted as well.

Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 59.4/14.4Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

In reply to a post by evrelia:

Surely you used the address checker: http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/ADSLChecker.address ? The postcode one does not distinguish between properties.

Yes, I did use the Address checker, hence why I posted the results for different properties. The link you quoted was something else.

I don't know if the other flats are occupied, but the flat that I'm moving into on Jan 4th is currently occupied by another tenant.

There's an alternative possibility too... that your phone line does not route the same way as all your neighbours.

The 3 flats in my building all route the phone lines out the back, to a pole in the back alley, and from there back to one cabinet.

The houses either side of this building (all of which are big old victorian piles) route out the front, to a different cabinet. They get slower estimates, even though their cabinet is roughly the same distance away.

In our case, the routing is obvious because it shows a different cabinet in the checker. But routing via a different DP, and then different routes back to the cabinet, is also possible.

Possible, but perhaps not likely.
