BT ADSL Checker

Hi All,
I have used the new checker at https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/pls/adsl/adslchecker.welcome
One question what does this statement mean:
The Stop Sale date for Datastream is from 30-Jun-2012; the Formal Retirement date for Datastream is from 31-Mar-2014.
Hope someone can help.
Thanks

Re: BT ADSL Checker

Datastream is an old Business product, and has nothing to do with Residential ADSL.

Re: BT ADSL Checker

Hi Keith,

 

I have just run the ADSL Checker (first time for some months) and that seems to have changed format, viz :-

BROADBAND AVAILABILITY CHECKER

Telephone Number *************** on Exchange KIMBOLTON is served by Cabinet 2

 

Available ProductsDownstream Line Rate(Mbps)Upstream Line Rate(Mbps)Downstream Range(Mbps)Availability Date

Featured Products

WBC ADSL 2+Up to 2--1 to 3.5Available
ADSL MaxUp to 1.5--1 to 2.5Available
WBC Fixed Rate0.5 ----Available
Fixed Rate0.5 ----Available

For all ADSL and WBC Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) services, the stable line rate will be determined during the first 10 days of service usage. Throughput/download speeds will be less than line rates and can be affected by a number of factors within and external to BT's network, Communication Providers' networks and within customer premises.

The Stop Sale date for Datastream is from 30-Jun-2012; the Formal Retirement date for Datastream is from 31-Mar-2014. The Stop Sale date for IPstream is from 31-Oct-2013; the Formal Retirement date for IPstream is from 31-Mar-2014.

If the End User wishes to migrate from their current Broadband supplier they will need to contact them in the first instance to obtain a MAC (Migrations Authorisation) Code, and then contact their new Broadband supplier to arrange for the service to be migrated.

 

Note: Please note that postcode and address check results are indicative only. Most accurate results can be obtained from a telephone number check.

Thank you for your interest.

 

 

Was it some sort of update by BT Wholesale like the speedtester ?

Best regards,

Re: BT ADSL Checker

I expect that these links would change occasionally. John46 mentioned this a few days ago about this one.
