It's odd though as every othe rprovider can't give us more than Plusnet on the copper cables, all I can assume is that BT will use the FTTP cable to supply us a faster FTTC type package? (which noone else can do)
Nope, all FTTC providers will use the same copper cables and the same DSLAM in the cabinet and will give the same speeds.
Ok thanks, I thought that would be the case, so on that basis then BT are gving false information in the sign up pages.
Other providers say they estimate 15-17meg (up to 23max sync) and 0.5 up.
BT say 80 down and 20 up for superfast which is a lie. If I was to sign up, they would have to explain why they can only supply 17!! (we know why)
Yeah, that says the same as me. 23 sync (17 usable) on FTTC, 100+ on FTTP.
So they should not be stating they can offer 80 down on the order pages for superfast! That's an error in their ordering.
Err, no. You can get 80/20 via FTTP. That is why only BT are offering it to you, nobody else has decided to sell it.
I think you will find that 80/20 is the same price regardless of how it is delivered. Superfast/Ultrafast doesn't determine delivery medium it is just different speeds regardless of delivery. Ultrafast can be delivered by either fibre or copper, so can Superfast.

BT do not offer Ultrafast 2 to me, this is probably due to the speed as mentioned in the FAQ. However, what numbers are they looking at? They seem to be close to 300Mbps on the dslchecker website so I'm not sure why faster speeds cannot be offered. Is ultrafast 1 capped at 152Mbps or does it go higher?
