How to find out when 80/20 will be available to me ?

Go to solution

Hi folks

 

I was wondering if there is any way of finding out when my cabinet will be going to the 80/20 circuit ?

 

Just a quick background on my BB, I've recently ( 27th April ) had infinity installed and the engineer from openreach told me that my circuit is still on the 40/10 system, and he wasn't sure when the circuit would be upgraded.

 

I'm more than happy with my new speeds of 22mb and 3 mb up, but would be nice to get even faster speeds for the same price.Smiley Happy

 

Many thanks in advance.

What does it say when you put our number into the Infinity checkerhttp://www.productsandservices.bt.com/consumerProducts/displayTopic.do?topicId=29017&s_cid=con_FURL_infinit...

The new 80MB is already available to everyone, but considering your download speeds at the moment, i would stay put, since the new 80Mb uses higher frequencies, over a longer distance of copper wire would cause DLM a software on your line to work hard, which may cause decreased speeds for stabilisation.

The speed checker, says that I should receive 15.7mb , the same speed as it did when I first ordered infinity.

 

I take it that with my speeds being near the lower end of the Numb range, the 80/20 product wouldn't really benefit me, but would prob make the speeds slower? According the the openreach engineer we are about half a mile away from our cabinet.

 

Like I said before I'm more than happy with the new speeds, we was only getting 2.5mb previously from sky so its all happy days Smiley Very Happy

Yea i would definitely stay put, since your receiving more than predicted which is great! half a mile away is quite far!

Agree with Aaron, you'll not see an improvement by moving to the 80/20 service as it's effectively just an increase in the maximum rate you can connect at. As you're not hitting 40 you obviously can't go above that.
