Scenario is a small hamlet where all the homes have BB - download speed say 1-1.5mbps.
Presumably they will be able to use FON/OZ so what would their download speed be ( my BB is 5.3mbps FON 3.5mbps)
Is it linked to distance from exchange or other factors - what if no-one used BB but FON would this have a major impact.
The comment about not using BB was meant to be about the users not using their BB but just FON (not not having BB) so that the priority issue didn't arise. I only raised the question because I don't know what restricts WiFi since it kinda doesn't come down the line.
Your reply has raised a further point (not covered by my scenario) which is - what if there are different speeds because of how things have been done - say for example 50% have 1.5mbps and 50% have 3mbps would the WiFi max be 1.5 or could it be higher. I appreciate this is just my musings but it does give some insight into how WiFi works for a muppet like me.
As I understand it [and I'm not sure I do ] the maximum BT Wi Fi [as it is now known] speed is about 0.5meg. The account owner always has priority over third parties accessing his/her hub.
But first: you have to find a Wi Fi point anyway
I think BT have raised the max BTWifi/BTfon/BTOpenzone speed to upto 8mb but depending on how fast the customers broadband connection to the hub is.
The owner of the BTFon/BTwifi-with-Fon/BTopenzone-H hotspot will have priority over the other connections public customer
Max speed is 8mbps - I get 3.5
I know that this thread isn't topical or necessarily relevant but assuming there is WiFi - there should be enough hubs in my example - what could be the speed if none of the 3mbps hubs were being used ( is it limited to 1.5 or could it be up to 3 as these hubs aren't being used.)
