Xilo FTTC -- Happy days :)


[link to this post]
 
Just got connected today, couldn't be happier.

I am 0.8 miles (1200 meters) from the green cabinet.

The BT guys equipment sync'd at 40MB, no idea what the modem syncs at as you dont get access to it.

Speedtest shows ~ 30MB. http://www.speedtest.net/result/1040738829.png

Coming from Xilo ADSL2 @ 6MB, this is a huge improvement, thanks Xilo! smile

Run the BT Performance Test. That shows sync and IP profile, as well as speed.

I am about the same distance from my cab. What was the original BT checker estimate?

Is there a list of FTTC packages for Xilo? I can't see them on their website.

FTTC not even scheduled for my exchange. It is on two neighbouring exchanges though. :/

lol,I think im going to be dead n buried before anything like this comes to llanelli.
I dont understand about this rollout.BT seem to target a lot of areas already with a fast array of other services (like cable and many LLU's)

I checked samknows earlier and even being converted over to the 21cn has been put back now till may. it was dated Feb 2011 just before christmas.


it sounds really good though I wasnt even aware Xilo did this type of service I cant imagine going from that speed to that high (im on 6mb myself with xilo adsl+2)

It's been a few months now since it was installed. I've been very happy with the service so far.

There was a couple of hours last week where BT were having issues that gave me 50% ploss. Other than that one event everything has been good as gold smile

Speeds have been extremely consistant, with a real nice 35MB+ on every speedtest no matter what time of day I do it.

Here are some latest figures,

Very happy overall smile
