If you have an FTTC speed of 24 to 26Mbps could you post your distance from your cabinet please ?
I am trying to establish a range of some real world distances as opposed to those quoted in various tables and graphs.
Your help in this exercise will be much appreciated, thanks in advance.
My IP profile is 25.61 / 10 but I typically get 21 / 4.4.
I'm about 1.5 km from the cabinet.
Hi as was said in your other post there is no way of determining your distance from the cabinet for an end user only Openreach have that data not only distance but if the line is aluminium ar part of it is will affect the speed as well as i said myself when i moved to infinity it was estimated 66mb down when installed was 76mb just down to the line quality a neighbour across the road from me connected to the same cabinet and the same distance away from it gets 52 had the same 66 mb down quoted by the checker you will only get an accurate speed once the line goes live
once you have posted the information asked for then the community members can help you more

I hear and understand what you have said here and on my other topic.
I was hoping by rephrasing the topic title I might get the responses I was hoping for.
At least I got one, so that is a start.
As I have said before I am not looking for absolute accuracy, just trying to guage a feel for just how pessimistic the charts are.
Maybe it it will help you, and others, appreciate the dilemma I am in if I tell you I was quite strongly "critisised" by some of the Broadband Champions for quoting the table here :- http://www.thinkbroadband.com/guide/fibre-broadband.html.
I'm not sure how quoting my speed and ADSL stats here is going to help but I will do as you ask, viz :-
1. Best Effort Test: -provides background information.
|0 Mbps||4 Mbps|
Max Achievable Speed
| Download speedachieved during the test was - 2.81 Mbps|
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 1.2 Mbps-4 Mbps.
IP Profile for your line is - 2.76 Mbps
2. Upstream Test: -provides background information.
|0 Mbps||0.83 Mbps|
Max Achievable Speed
|Upload speed achieved during the test was - 0.63Mbps|
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 0.83 Mbps
If anyone else feels comfortable in giving me an idea of their distance from the cabinet if they have a speed around 24 to 26Mbps I would be most grateful.
Many thanks for your reply. Now one person has understood the question I was asking, hopefully there will be a few more.
I think what John is trying to say is that there is more to take into account than just distance from the cabinet. It also goes on the quality of the line running from the cabinet to your property. Any joints that have become old and rusted etc.
Estimates are only based on lines typically the same as yours, doesn't necessarily mean they are the same. I have seen plenty of people on here get low estimates and have received much more than they had originally thought.
Hi john46 & Aarong,
Yes, yes and yes again, I have said several times that I appreciate all that.
But I ask again what is the harm in people that have speeds of 24 to 26Mbps telling me how far they believe they are from their cabinet please ? Nobody will be giving away a state secret and how I interpret the information is my problem.
I do recognise that the results may well be a degree biased as the majority of people on here are those with problems.
Actual current SYNC speed 25721 Kbps.
Initially achieved SYNC speed of around 35000 Kbps before interleaving & increased crosstalk reduced speeds over 18 months or so.
Current BT speed estimate 30Mb.
Distance from FTTC cabinet:-
996m Measured by walking the route with a trundle wheel).
1000m From BT's Network records (but only to the pole top Distribution Point)
1086m Measured with a TDR electrical line length/quality tester from master socket to FTTC cabinet DSLAM.
