So around 1 week ago my area got enabled for BT Infinity, I can get the 39Mb package but not the 76Mb package. I know this is down to the distance of the exchange, my question is will I ever get the BT Infinity 2 76Mb package in my area or will I never get it because how far I am from the exchange?

Exchange SLEAFORD is served by Cabinet 18
the simple answer is that due to the distance from the VDSL cabinet you won't be able to get any faster.
Bear in mind the figures quoted on the checker are estimates and a lot of people do achieve faster speeds than those estimated on the checker.
Hope this helps,
Yes, but BT told me over the phone that the engineer has still yet to fit basicley a booster in the exchange so all the area can get the full 76Mb package. Is this true or just a marketing trick to get people to buy it even if they don't get those speeds in the future.
If you order the up to 76mb package, you will not get anywhere near 76mb, you will still get the 39mb or faster quoted.
What he may be referring to is FTTP which will be launching soon. This works by a fibre optic cable coming up to your house and giving you speeds of up to 330mbps!!!.
The costs are likely to be high for FTTP though, £1500+ for cable installation.
Hope this helps,
wow, I think I'll wait for Sky Fiber or maybe just Virgin. I've been with Sky for past couple of years and they offer me excellent speeds which isn't fiber optic. 10-15Mbps download, so I think I will just wait till Sky offer me the Fiber Optic which should be soon as BT has got theres enabled now. I know they use the same exchange ect but they use different equipment.
