Up to 80Mbit

Go to solution
With Virgin Media ramping up the pressure with a high profile TV ad campaign about them doubling speeds for free I wonder when BT are going to make a move and announce something regarding 80Mbit?

I have noticed just today that BT now have a new 100mb offering for £35 pounds so no chance the upgrade will be free

The 100mb is FTTP (Fibre to the Property) not FTTC.

"Generic Ethernet Access over Fibre to the Cabinet (GEA-FTTC) enables you to offer superfast broadband (SFBB) at up to 40/15 Mbit/s (80/20Mbit/s announced for 2012"

My package is 40/10.
Why am I not on 40/15??

40/15 is the service that is offered by Openreach. If you check your line in the BT Wholesale checker it gives a speed for the uploads too, mine is about 13meg.

BT Retail who sell Infinity have decided to sell it at 40/10. Similar to the fact that ADSL is actually capable of speeds of 11meg but BT sell it as an up to 8meg product,

My package is 40/2.... That's the one I signed up for.

Yet The line is capable of "WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed of 26.6Mbps and upstream line speed of 11.1Mbps".

 

It will be interesting to see what happens when the speed increase is released/implemented.

I doubt it will be free...... and to be honest I am very happy with my 37Mbps download so wouldn't rush to spend more.

Openreach saying it is going to be available in 2012 isn't the same as BT Retail saying a product is going to be offered. All the Openreach page tells you is a product is available for the likes of BT, ADSL24, Zen etc. to resell to us.

That's correct however BT retail will be offering the 80meg product.
