Looks like it's going to be similar here.
At the moment there's pretty much no point to having FttC (but I guess the upload speed is nice?), and there are times when it's slower than the ADSL we had before. Whenever I come to use it, i.e. am at home, which means after work when everyone else is at home - it slows to ~7mbps on speed tests, but sometimes the real world downloads actually go down to what I seem to recall is about ADSL1 speed (if not dial-up speed), downloads of 40KB/s. Absolutely pathetic.
plusnet can't help much of course, we've gone to the far end of a fart on diagnostics but it all boils down to "looks ok to us!
" because they work 9-5 when the speed is ok. All they can do is send a BT engineer out to check the wiring etc (no point, it's fine, the wiring doesn't know what time it is and mysteriously go bad at peak time - plus the BT engineer would also be 9-5 and would just say "huh? looks fine to me!") and add us to a list of complaints so that hopefully one day they might upgrade the dslam. Yay.
