Re: Broadband speed upgrade

ADSL has pretty much hit the limit.  I can't imagine BT spending any money upgrading it when they're rolling out fibre.

 

The speeds they currently offer on FTTC fibre are pretty much what VDSL2 offers.  There are trials underway to increase the speed, but they can only do what the technology allows.

 

FTTP fibre is only available in a very limited number of areas.

Re: Broadband speed upgrade

I have just signed to BT from Virgin Media.  Virgin maybe upping their speeds but they can't provide close to the speed I should be getting right now.  I am on 100mb and sometimes (especially evenings) get LESS than 1mb dl speed.  No equipment issues, no rebooting of the router required as at 6am I will be back to 98mb.  TOTALLY over subscibed

 

It used to be great up until about 12 months ago when the speed plummetted.

Re: Broadband speed upgrade

I was on the upto 38mb package.  Phoned bt and agreed a new 12 month contract to get up to 52mb service.  Actual speeds have not changed,  so feel hard done by. 

 

Now being offered upto 72mb, but what's the point of the bt infrastructure can't deliver it?.  I moved from Virgin Media last year where be speeds were consistently over 50mb.  Even my Vodafone 4G mobile phone can deliver 50mb.

Re: Broadband speed upgrade

I see all these issues raised by scores of people but no answers from BT. Are there ever any answers and if so, where can I find them?
