Just had the engineer round. Download sitting at 35meg and upload at about 9meg. Thats an increase from 6meg download.
Two years ago when I started this thread I was getting 120k download. What a turnaround.
Are you on the 38 meg package or the 76?
Welcome to the forum Bribri7
I am also on cab25, and yes the power did go in a couple of weeks ago. There is work planned on Polton Ave Road for 21/10, and I hope it is to blow the fibre to the cab, but I can tell you that work has been planned on that road for the post couple of months, however it keeps on being cancelled and re-scheduled. So I wouldn't hold your breath that it will go ahead!
Kilfnan, surprised to hear you went for the lower spec package considering your past experiences, however I would like to know how you are finding your new found speed. I am particuarily interested in video quality as my family stream a lot of video on Netflix and Lovefilm, is it full HD quality?
I'll see how I get on with the 38 meg before thinking about upgrading. I use Netflix and it isn't HD quality but to be honest it's good enough. I'll see how the line settles down.
I have just had a bit of worrying news.
My stepdad had an engineer out early this morning because there was something
wrong with the line downstairs and he asked the engineer if he knows whether
the work in easthouses and for our cabinet 4 for FTTC was near to being finished
and the cabinet going live and according to the engineer, the work up here is no
where near finished and don't hold your breath of getting FTTC soon.
I can only hope the engineer didn't actually know what he was
talking about and was just talking a lot of **bleep**.
