Rubbish

As I have said before, I am 100 meters maybe less from the cab, new build housing area so all new lines yet my line can only 'support 51.56Mbps'? Been a big hype over nothing in my opinion. New lines mean Good Lines, limited crosstalk etc etc.

 

Am I impressed? Not on your life!!!

 

Frankly rather wish I never bothered with it all. Just peeved that new lines etc etc G ood job I do not rely or need the sped, just bandwidth.

Re: Rubbish

There is a lot more to it then just how far you're from the cab. What the cable from the cab is made of and what gauge it is will affect speed. Also just because you're 100M from the cab as the crow flow doesn't necessarily mean you have a direct connection to it. It may well be taking a longer route via other properties.

Re: Rubbish

Okay, I will explain again. I am ex BT from years ago whe we knew what we were doing, not board swappers.

 

Cabling cannot go any further than 140 meters or so as there is not anything there bar a previous buld complex. Cabling to this site was new and direct. I believe it was that cowboy outfit, Fujitsu or something or other and there I would say lies the problem. I saw the cabling going in before I was mistaken on buying this property which I wish I hadn't.

 

Age of property? New.

 

Age of cabling? New.

 

Anyone got anymore excuses they would like to throw in?

Re: Rubbish

Guage of cabling would be related to the run and voltage drop/interfence etc. If it is wrong for the run then BT/Fujitsu to blame. Shame they did not run FO as any sensible company would have done considering the leap forward of technology and also evidenced by their own expansion views. They were aware of the properties going in here and shoudl make allowance. For Gods sake this is meant to be a modern world.

 

Anyway, cannot be bothered with it all. Nothing will ever get done about it anyway.

Re: Rubbish

Oh no, not just the BT engineers. Don't get me started on Sky Engineers. 2 day course and they are Satellite Engineers. I left BT to work for Sky. God help us all. It just opens your eyes to see from the inside what is happening and then be a customer.

 

And I am not saying all BT are bad. Not their fault the training is not up to scratch. When I left ages ago BT were reducing staffing levels and training. Prefering to 'outsource' and we all know what happens then.

 

The guys who have come here for my problems were okay. All seem a little disillusioned though without saying anything.
