BT infinity coming 9th june

Getting BT setup on the 9th 

speeds on the whole sales say's high 55 low 27 

now my question is will speeds be affected by how far you are from the exchange or is it how far you are from the green box

 

my nearest exchange is 2.1 miles a way but the green box is down the road 

Also what should the noise margin be sitting at?

Re: BT infinity coming 9th june

It is distance to the cabinet that counts not distance to the exchange.  The noise margin optimum setting is 6. Your speeds can fluctuate for the first few days before settling at the speed you will get.

 

On your post here https://community.bt.com/t5/Other-Broadband-Discussions/Thinking-of-joining-please-help-me/td-p/1481... you said that BT had checked your line and you would ony get between 34/40Mbps so I wouldn't expect the top end of your estimate.

Re: BT infinity coming 9th june

Even if you measured the distance accurately, there are still other factors that can affect your speed. You will not know until you are connected. However, as you are unlikely to get much in excess of 50M it might be worth considering if Infinity1 is the best option.

Re: BT infinity coming 9th june

if you know where cab is then you can walk the distance but from graph and max speed from dslchecker probably about 600m

Re: BT infinity coming 9th june

As a rough measurement you could find the location on Google maps and measure from your house to it. Keep in mind that the cables may not take the most direct route or the one you would take walking to it.

 

You also have to keep in mind that the condition/quality of your cables will also effect the speed that you finally receive.

 

The only sure way to tell what speed you will receive is to connect everything up and then run a speed test. If it turns out you are not within the estimated range you would be able to complain to BT to have it sorted however if you are within the range but at the lower end, BT will not do much if anything to improve it.
