Network upgrade

I have recieved email advising Good news. We’re rolling out our faster broadband and we’ll be upgrading our network in your area on 08-Feb-11. I am in Milton Keynes and off the Bradwell Abbey exchange. I was wondering what the upgrade is, and what benefits I expect to get from it.

Re: Network upgrade

It is almost certainly an upgrade from the "up to 8M" ADSLMax to the "up to 20M" ADSL 2/2+.

If your speed is currently close to 8M, you should see a significant increase in speed.

If your speed is well below 8M, you may only see a modest improvement, or even none at all.

Don't forget there's a 10 day training period after the upgrade, so don't be surprised if your connection drops a few times, or if your speed is initially rather slow.

Re: Network upgrade

I always thought that exchanges are automatically upgraded to 21CN when FTTC is rolled out on an exchange, and Bradwell Abbey already has FTTC? Or is it just the router in the exchange which is upgraded when FTTC is installed?

 

Maybe I've been reading the wrong books? 😄

Re: Network upgrade

The OP made this thread in Feb. hence Bradwell Abbey has been upgraded now. The third post is someone who has incorrectly received a similar email and somehow found this dead thread. AFAIK the exchanges that are upgraded to FTTC already have 21CN
