Not really sure, but as far as I kow you're not getting Infinity unless you can get a predicted min of 15 mbit downstream. One of my brothers lives just round the corner from me and can only get a predicted speed of 13 mbit downstream, so no Infinity for him. My line's exactly 547m to the FTTC cab.
I'm sure that I read somewhere (possibly ThinkBroadband) that Aquis are supposed to be/about to be offering sub 15 mbit FTTC connections. Once BT have a proper handle on Infinity I'm sure they will also roll out another batch of FTTC products for those who can only get lower speeds and also at some point higher speed products for those of us able to get full speed.
I have phoned BT and they said I can receive Infinity at a max speed of 12mbs. My neighbours who are literally 10 yards opposite me (basically the width B road), can receive a max of 36 mbs. My mind boggles as to why this is the case. Can anybody enlighten me... the BT girl said something about being the end of a line, but I'm not quite sure what she meant.
In some cases the estimates have been know to be way off the mark and actual speeds are much better.
"Line test calculations are frequently carried out and line speed estimates will always fluctuate by small amounts. No method of estimating line speeds will be 100% accurate but we have no reason to suspect that our current method is grossly inaccurate.
HAHA, just as i was typeing that i had the infinity page loaded to try my number again,
Hmm Well .. i believe your calculation of 6.2mb was "grossly inaccurate"
I got a phone call from BT about the new package for sub 15 meg FTTC, has anyone else heard anything about this yet as it isn`t on the main site?
I was told that usage would be unlimited (within reason of course), and that it cost £25.99 per month.
My estimated speed is 7.2meg, but as i`m already getting between 5.5 and 6meg with ADSL max, I doubt that it`s correct.
