How do I find out when our exchange will be upgraded?
Our exchange is very small (around 35O lines) and we are a long way from it - 4km. At the very best - early in the morning - we can get 1.5mb download and 0.35mb upload. By the time everyone else is on it in the evenings it doesn't really work at all - so slow you can't check the speeds. Have done all we can locally, am a county broadband champion, but seems impossible to find out when the BT exchange will be upgraded. Suspect we are too rural and will be in the 10% not covered by the Government's weedy promise of 2015. Such a missed opportunity - as better broadband would be a fantastic boost to rural economies and save fuel. Anyone know how a) you can find out the plans and b) what's the best way to lobby?
Re: How do I find out when our exchange will be upgraded?
Your exchange is probably ADSLMax enabled giving your speeds of up to 8mb. The upgrade your probably talking about is the upgrade to BTw's 21cn network which enables ADSL2+ at your exchange. ADSL2+ is upto 20mb.
