Two buildings next to each other:
1. A (6 flats).
2. B (house).
Cellar/basement has a shared portion in which there is a new Distribution Point installed by BT and from where all 7 lines go to the street.
I've had BT Infinity installed for House B and was told that I could not get Infinity 2.
Entering the new phone number on the DSL Checker was recently showing max clean speads of circa 40-50 down and 6-10 up. I am actually getting the top end of these speeds - great!
Now, however, checking the line phone number that I was given (I haven't tested the phone as I do not use the phone), the DSL checker for some reason shows the following very low numbers:
Yet, when I check the address of B, it shows numbers similar to what I am actually getting:
HOWEVER, when I check ANY of the flats in A, it shows much higher numbers:
So what the hell is happening?
Why is House B getting a lower speed than all the flats on A when they are on the same DP??
My theory is.. there used to a be a line in House B many years ago and it was disconnected (i.e. not used for over a decade), yet the address for B still remains on the system as it is a property and is what has been used for the DSL look-up and Infinity install. However, B is ACTUALLY on the new DP as all the flats which are all new addresses.
What do you guys think? I basically want to get on the fastest possible fibre if it is available to me!
On another forum this user has posted a screenshot from his router which shows him syncing at 54995/9995. He is syncing at the maximum for Infinity 1. It's 99.9% certain that he could sync higher so this definitely looks like a database error.
the dslchecker results are odd in that your phone number with cab 10 shows available yet the others 2 using address also on cab 10 show a waiting list
you really need to get a cheap about £5 corded phone and check your line and your phone number by dialing 17070 it is also a great investment as it is first check if you have broadband problems and make sure problem is outside you hope so you do not incur the callout fee of £129.99
a better check would be to try and get a phone number of one of flats and see if that is same as your results
Does this help? I just put on a new VDSL face plate (using the original RJ11 cable that came with the HH ) and plugged it back in logged in:
I don't see why the maxdatarate is necessary.
They are synced at the maximum, with a 7dB SNRM.
With a 6dB SNRM target they have an attainable about 3Mb higher than current sync if it's just for your curiosity.
If BT do what they should and allow an upgrade to Infinity 2 then DLM may allow the line to lower to a 3dB SNRM which would give a max attainable nearer 66-67Mb (Huawei cabinets only)
The upstream should get around 12-13Mb, maybe a little higher.
The OP's screenshot shows the BT Wholesale checker estimates for their address are a little low showing a clean/high of 48/8.
They are synced at the full 55/10.
The BT Wholesale checker estimates for their number are way way way off.
They show a maximum of 6/1Mb.
This needs corrected or it will forever prevent the OP ordering certain FTTC products that involve the telephone number.
