Have you checked on the new DSL checker?

If the checker says you can get 1000/220 then you can indeed get that.

Your ISP (AAISP) has simply chosen not to sell anything above 160Mb.

You can also order the 330/50 package from AAISP to get the higher upload speeds but they will cap the downstream at 160Mb.

This isn't because of any restrictions in your area, in the exchange or local backhaul but entirely down to AAISP (specifically their FireBricks only having 1Gb ports).

If you check with other ISP's you should see higher speeds are available to you.

I've never seen any line restricted to ordering 160Mb.

I was going to go with BT initially for that very reason, but when i was told they could only offer the same speed I stayed with AA.

The whole town is apparently being upgraded to FTTP so Im guessing some kind of backhaul upgrades will be needed.

Now
Andrews & Arnold 150mb FTTP
140.85Mb/s - 30.27Mb/s - 9ms

Are you saying BT can't even offer you 330/50 over FTTP? That's really bizarre if true. Might be worth checking with Zen instead and then upgrading to 1000/115 with Zen rather than BT, once Zen start selling the higher tiers (should be soon).

I've been back through my emails and no that's not correct - I was misremembering.

I tried to order 1000mb, but they could only offer 330, same as Ian, but as the cost was pretty close to what they were offering elsewhere for 1000 I decided to stay with A&A as I'd have to move a lot of other stuff like hosting and email that it was not as cost effective.

I just looked and BT can now do 1000 according to their website, but to be honest 160 is fine for my usage.
