anyone know why this checker suddenly says fttc is available for my phone number after a year of never showing any info about fttc? BT say i cannot order as it is not available, i know the speeds are rubbish but am curious why suddenly today it appears
Telephone Number xxxxxxxxxxx on Exchange BOWMANSGREEN is served by Cabinet 9
How can the ADSL speeds be higher than the FTTC speeds ?? Is ADSL not on a copper line all the way or does it also run on the new fibre line to the cabinet ? just curious
VDSL+VDSL2 (FTTC) speeds degrade quicker over shorter distances than ADSL.
VDSL2 will only improve speeds within 1000mtrs of a local cabinet and at that distance will only be somewhat equivalent to ADSL speeds though vastly superior the nearer to the cabinet you are.
BTW, yes ADSL is copper all the way from the exchange.
