Re: BT Infinity Northern Ireland

BT was quoting 20Mb download yesterday in Annahilt - today it just went up to 31.4Mb

 

Can it be true ? I hope so!

Re: BT Infinity Northern Ireland

the checker was updated today, everyone should get a better estimate. Better as in more accurate, not better as in faster.

Re: BT Infinity Northern Ireland

My girlfriend got it this morning (Crossgar) and it's super...38meg...spoke to the open reach guy and he says I should get it too in Castlewellan by November...he knows where I live (exactly) and I'm about 1 mile from the cabinet, bit the infinity checker says not and the wholesale checker says I will get .5 meg on FTTC...what should I do?

Re: BT Infinity Northern Ireland

Thats exactly the results I was getting  . The looks of things you are too far from your Cab to receive FTTC aswell . I am just over a mile from my cab and cant get it . It sucks 😞

hi folks,

 

this is my new work connection....wow....considering an hr ago i had next gen adsl2 and 2.5 mb connection it's some difference....i'm coleraine and the cabinet is less than 500 yards from the premises....

 

more importantly i got chatting to the nice engineer, made him a cuppa whilst he tested the connection   😉  and he was telling me that there is a waiting list of over 4000 both residential and business and he is assigned roughly 4 per day to complete so you can imagine the time scale of rolling this out....now to put it in context his previous call was in a home and he spent 2 hrs configuring everything for the customer....in my work i had mostly everything pre-configured (it is my job) and all he had to do was connect everything up test it and have a cuppa and he was away in 30 mins....so 4 a day when mixed with business and residential ain't too bad....the up shot is that they are pulling engineers in from all over the place to roll this out....another little nugget i gleened....i live in castlerock and i am worried as i am 2.5 miles from my cabinet but the nice engineer told me that whilst i might not be able to avail of infinity it could be possible, they never know until they tested it tbh....so fingers crossed....;-)

 

just thought i would share the love....;-)

 

Willie

Re: BT Infinity Northern Ireland

got mine installed today.
Mine didn't test the connection at all. he just plugged it in and told me to use the speed tester 😐

nonetheless, i was instantly downloadig at 4600KB/second, which boggled my mind, given that 80KB/sec was what i was downloading before.

Amazing speed.
