Re: ADSL24 BONDED FTTC

Not very fast - one line should do 100mbps on its own. Does that mean you get 600GB per month?
One: It was a pic only, maybe the OP can share the link to the speedtest it was achieved on, and Two: It's FTTC and not FTTP.

His work possibly has a cable in it? laugh

It ain't being used for much at the moment, but when it is used, its quick smile

The price would probably put most people off, as it's 2 packages from your isp, and it's also double the BT line rental. I guess it depends on what FTTP is priced at etc.

Considering i went from bonded BE at 12mbps to bonded ADSL24 FTTC and ~74mbps. It's worth the extra spend.
Be* haven't done bonding for a year, and it IS available - on a one year contract.

You payed £65 Pcm, plus router cost [£89], plus an extra BT line [£130]. The extra spend being 12x £65 + BT line cost x2 + the cost of <add fairy dust here>.

Er... No. mad

One line (if it's short enough) would be able to do 100mbps if a) FTTC wasn't capped at 40mbps and; b) the VDSL profile used by BT's FTTC went higher than 50Mbps (from memory they use '8C' - a US profile limited to 50Mbps instead of one of the European profiles which can go up to 100Mbps).

So until BT remove the cap and switch profiles one line cannot do 100Mbps on its own.

Re: ADSL24 BONDED FTTC


[re: BatBoy] [link to this post]
 
Fortunately, i don't include myself in the "group" that actually wants the moon on a plate for £10 a month. To have access to what i consider a premium product i'm quite happy to pay a premium price.

I currently pay for 2x Fibre 90 Office Pro packages from ADSL24 per month, £105.80 Total.
I currently pay for 2x BT Line Rental per month, £26 Total.
I paid 2x FTTC Installs, £100 Total (One off charge)

If we work that out, over the period of the 12 month contract, it's around £140 per month.

As i said in a previous post, i was previously with BE and had their bonded package which is priced at £66.38 a month, take into account the 2 BT line rentals again, and their one off install charge of £86.81.

This works out at around £100 per month.

As i've previously said, for an extra spend of around £40 per month, i've moved from BE bonding with a speed of around 12mbps to FTTC with a speed of around 73mbps.

£40 extra per month for a 6x speed increase? It's a no brainer imho.

So, someone mentioned the "Unlimited" word, with ADSL24 as i've previously stated i now have 2 packages, this actually doubles my peak time usage, from 90gig to 180gig (ADSL24 peak time with these packages are 8am-8pm). From 8pm each evening and all weekend i have Unlimited usage. Now as i ain't around during the day (I'm actually working) the peak time usage isn't an issue for those couple of hours that i'm actually home.

Just to clear up a couple of other points made, BE have been doing Bonding for quite some time now, i was actually part of an earlier trial. BE don't do FTTC at the moment, so the point "ADSL24 re-sell BE" is null, do they even re-sell BE LLU? I ain't sure wink The speed test link in my sig, if you actually take a look at the URL of this link, you should notice that it is actually hosted on the Speed Test site i used to test with, it really isn't JUST a picture wink

Thanks for the info, sounds like a steal.

Did ADSL24 also have to make changes at your exchange to support this?

Who is the underlying ISP they are reselling? Daisy?
