New to infinity and cant wait!

Hi all,

  Just a quick note to say that I am looking forward to being connected to infinity on the 16th Feb.

I have, for a long time now, had a serious case of tech envy!

My property is some 3.5Km from teh exchange and the line stats were rather poor (55db attenuation)

this resulted in an ADSL speed of around 3M.

I looked at going with another well known cable company only to find out that the last node was 2 houses away and they couldn't do anything for me (despite this I still get letters from them regularly asking me to join! Like rubbing salt in the wound!)

Anyway, I am hoping to join internet Nirvana on Thursday and look forward to streaming as it is meant to be.

I currently have a Billion Bipac 7300N which I intend to use as a firewall in conjuction with the BT modem as it has served me well and has good WiFi range too.

It has one of the ethernet ports which can be switched to "EWAN" function.

Bye for now.

Currently 3Mb then you should certainly notice the difference.

 

Hope all goes well for the install.

Re: New to infinity and cant wait!

You're in the small minority Nealfiona, the vast majority of the hundreds of thousands of BT Infinity customers have no issues. You're experiencing a problem that BT are trying to solve. The engineer has called you which means he's been assigned the task. Traffic could be just one of the reasons he's delayed.
