Thanks, yes I know where the cabinet is. As I said, I've followed the cables from it to the two properties. It'll take me a few days to get the phone number, but when I have it I'll post the pages from adslchecker, but they'll be exactly as they are in my original post. Won't you then just doubt that his house is further down the road than mine? Short of giving you the numbers and the postcode (so you can confirm the locations e.g., on google maps) I'm not sure how we can move this discussion onto the helpful bit from the current doubtful comments. Would anyone be willing to offer comments or advice, assuming my original post to be true?
Thanks in advance.
Sorry, I didn't understand the last post. I do have an HH6, but the technical log doesn't say anything about the distance to the cabinet. ADSL checker says max speed 19 and current speed 16. Technical log on HH6 says current speed 16 so they agree as you'd expect. There is just a single run of cables all the way down the road from the cabinet. The cable definitely doesn't go past my house, up to my neighbour and then back down again. It's an overhead cable so you can see exactly how it runs.
