I should of course know this, but after today's events I'm not sure.
Today was my activation date for Infinity 1. 8am this morning the phone and BB went off. I went off to work and came home and plugged in my new HH5. It connected, but while starting up my wife mentioned the phone wasn't working. Turns out I now have no phone line, and appear to be still connected to ADSL as my speeds are 10up,0.4 down. This is slightly higher than the 6-7 up I was getting. Called BT in disgust, they tell me theres a fault at the exchange and thats why my phone isnt working, and that my Infinity has been activated. I hope it hasn't as the speed is way slower than the 22-28mbps I was expecting. I think the 'engineers' have cocked up my switch over/activation and didn't check it was working correctly. I've now got to wait another 3 days for another 'engineer' to go back and fix the cockup that happened today. Thanks BT, brilliant service.
So is there any way I can check if my Infinity has been activated? I can't understand how the phone is off but the BB still on either?
If your phone is not working your broadband can still work but it will be slow
go to hub manage then troubleshooting then helpdesk and post the stats

Looks like FTTC but very low due to the phoneline problem. Once phone is working the speeds will I,prove
I perhaps should have mentioned, when plugging my HH4 back in it wouldn't connect to the BB at all - just the flashing red light. This seems odd as I was under the impression that the HH4 was FTTC compatible?
The hh4 will not work on fibre without a separate modem but the hh5 will work on its own
That is normal the you actual is below attainable. Just check other posts and you will see there is a difference some less than you and some more. Your noise margin is normal about 6db so don't see any likely change to speed
Thanks for your prompt reply. When I look at the results I got further up the thread it shows the connection speed was the same as the attainable speed so assumed that was always the case unless there was an issue with the line?
