I am with BT Copper Broad Band with unlimitted download for the last 6 years.
This October cabinet near my home has been activated for FTTC.
I on enquiring about Infiniti [as mine coming up for renewl in 2 weeks] suggested to go for Infiniti 2 by BT spokes person after she checked my line and informed me that I can get 78GB download speed.
I am awaiting for an engineer visit on 11th Thuresday 2014. My HH5 to arrive in post sometime today.
I should have searched in here prior to placeing my order... But that is late in the day..
I after reading few posts in here with few having problems, discovered the above way of checking my available download speed.
I suspect I would only receive Infiniti 1 speeds from my cabinet? Do I need to contact BT to varify if I would obtain speeds as was told?
You are well into Infitity 2 speeds.... yes will depend on distance you are from cab but you have gone for the right package assuming you don`t get a pants service 😛 on the plus side if the service is pants you get to spend many happy hours talking to customer service in India
According to the above you should get between 55Mbps (minimum) - 80Mbps, so you'll be well above Infinity 1 speeds.
Thank you Gribley for your time.
I hope "not" my X'Mas hoildays chasing people in India>.
Why would you suspect you would only get Infinity 1 speeds? The estimate you have clearly shows you will get above that.
BT always quote the maximum speed for a Range A line. Depending on the quality of your line, which could be either a Range A or a Range B line, you can expect download speeds between 54Mbps and 80Mbps.
The maximum download speed for Infinity 1 is 38Mbps so it is worth you going for Infinity 2.
I am sorry if I have chosen the wrong word"Suspect" but got rather over worried reading few posts in here which I should have done well before contacting BT I suppose. [No excuse but I am not a young person either.]
Now I am beginning to understand Infiniti 1 & Infiniti 2 speeds...
Thank you for your reply. It is really appreciated for your time and effort.
