Hi, I have 3 broadband lines from BT (We work from home) Last year they were upgraded as we now had an improved exchange and FTTC. Our 3 lines which were 1-2 mb were supposed to be upgraded to 22MB.
The lines actually provide 6mb, 9mb and 8mb so they are so much better than before but the upload is only 0.1mb per line or sometimes 0.2mb so Voip doesn't work.
Any ideas how we can get faster upload as I beleibve we should be getting 0.6 at least.
Our Exchange shows as:
ADSL status: ADSL Max status: SDSL status: 21CN WBC status: FTTC status: FTTP status:
Enabled as of 27/08/2003
Enabled as of 31/03/2006
Available in some areas
p.s. Our Cabinet which is shown as FTTC (via http://www.hampshiresuperfastbroadband.com/about-the-project/live-cabinets/) shows as (0.5mile away)
Downstream Line Rate(Mbps)

Had the BT Sales rep out so we could sign up to Ethernet First Mile. FTTC is 400metres away but Ethernet First Mile at £235 pcm is not available. Other option is £7500 pcm for 10up / 10down.
This is because the nearest connection is 6km away (even though FTTC is 400 metres away).
Decided on a 4G EE Home Broadband at 18MB down 12mb up for £44 pcm for 50GB. As saving of almost £600pcm
We work from home so a decent Broadband connection is key.
Anyone else any long term experience with this?
