I am currently in an area covered by postcode BT641AN, this is right in the centre of Craigavon Centre and covers around 30 properties. Surrounding me are postcodes BT641AZ BT641AE and BT641AW, all postcodes cover an area of around 200m Radius. BT641AZ BT641AE and BT641AW (Cabinet P116) 35-57mbps..... mine BT641AN 1.5mbps (cabinet P120)! I know some cabinets can't be upgraded but is it not possible to add these 30 or so homes to the one cabinet that is? I am actually situated between these post codes to the left of me 57mbps to the right 47mbps. What is surprising is on street stats one property in my postcode gets 10mbps, could it be that i can receive infinity but the postcode on the database isnt updated? So BT Vision no chance, Netflicks, Lovefilm or any internet tv forget it. Its 2012 is 1.5mbps really acceptable?
Id even be happy with 5mbps....
Can anyone shed any light on this, or when i may be upgraded? Fibres actually pass my house.....considering mobile broadband.

Man, I'm feeling you bud! I had to put up with BT Broadband, 1.4MB Down Max for many years and lucky enough BT Infinity came in, now with 24.8MB Down. I'm sure one day you will have it, just be patient mate!!!.
You know what??? It was a real nightmare back them days, I have to smile a little becuase when I got a download rate of 124KB/s I thought that was like supperb!!! and that was on a good day! I never thought I would jump up to the 3.0MB/s plus, rate speeds, and I mean ever!. What is a good day for you? You have to look beyond annoyance and have the crack about it, it will come round for you and all that anger will just slowly slide away!. 🙂
A good day for me.... well as far as internet goes, a youtube video that doesnt take 5 times longer to watch that the actual clip 🙂
What..., you dont mean the clip starts of buffering soon as you press play and then carrys on buffering every 5 - 10 seconds!. lol;) Not annoying at all!!!....aarrrgghhhh!!!. "I want to watch a utube clip that is 3.25min long, I will have to start it off at 5.00p.m., then it should be ready for me to watch about 6.00p.m." ......Buffering 12% .........Buffering 25%.......Buffering 32% .......Buffering 50%, "I'm getting there", SUDDENLY, arrgh...no.., ......Buffering 12%.. oh, **bleep** to it, i will forget it. lol. 😉 Its as bad as dial up mate but you have to sit back and smile.
