Addition of FTTP offering to the cab causing issues?

Go to solution

Hi all

Just wanted to share something interesting with those already on FTTC.

 

I've been on Infinity2 for a year now. My original estimate from BT was 41/6. My max attainable rate is about 37/7 but I have been getting a rock steady 34/6 service. No drop outs or restrictions. Been happy with that considering distance from the cab and ali on the service.

 

Now then. A few weeks back I noticed that my speeds would drop to 24/6. Checking the modem stats I found that the max attainable rate had changed to 27/6.

 

A modem reset would then take it back up to what I had been getting. This I have to do every few days.

 

I often keep an eye on "developments" on my cab using the site

I noticed that not only has FTTP "on demand" appeared as an option but my estimate for FTTC has now dropped/adjusted to about what I am now occasionally experiencing!

 

Has anyone else had this unexplained change to their speeds due to the "addition" of FTTP to their cab?

 

Cheers

Other people's estimates have changed but it's nothing to do with FTTPoD being added - that's just another update.

I appreciate that FTTP oD is a separate offering. As I said in my original post it has now appeared on our exchange. I am just wondering what has changed and has affected my service.

Mods replied. Seems that the service has returned back to normal. I will keep this post open for a few days more.

No. 🙂
But my actual speeds have returned to what they used to be which is good. I just hope that they stay that way. I don't have much confidence though.
