I just moved into a flat and found that I am only able to get 5Mb download. I have checked the post code and it says I can't get Infinity.
Across the road, they are getting Infinity but I can't see the cabinet they are connected to (A big green one with Infinity Is Here on it normally). There seems to be 2 old style cabinets near by.
So how are they getting it and not me?

Solved! Go to Solution.
So how can I be moved off an exchange-only line as I am on a speed that I was on in around 2004?
I moved from having near 50Mb at one end of town to 5Mb at the other end and this is nearer the exchange
If you are on an Exchange Only (EO) line you can not be changed to another cabinet. At the moment you will not be able to get Infinity. Sometime in the future, who knows when, Openreach may install a cabinet out side your exchange and this will allow EO line to then get Infinity. At the moment all you can do is wait and see.
Must remember to check what the broadband is like before I move as now have until next March until I can move if I wanted to.
Well at least I am saving money
So okay I am on an Exchange Only line.
Why am I only getting 2Mb when I am only straight line distance of 775 metres?
Surely ADSL should be giving me about 8Mb according to
Perhaps I am on a wet bit of string instead of copper
