Maximum Fibre 1 speed

Go to solution

I'm currently with Plusnet and at end of contract and thinking of switching back to BT, the question I have is that the website is only offering Fibre 1 as an option saying I will get up to 50Mbps whereas on Plusnet I'm getting 55Mbps and my sync speed is currently 66171/17214 so I would have thought that I should be able to get around 60Mbps (Plusnet seem unable to deliver this).

If I can only sign up to Fibre 1 will I be limited to 50Mbps or will the line run at the highest rate it can achieve? When I was with BT 18 months ago I managed around 62-64Mbps so hoping I can get better than 50 if I come back.

If you select the fibre 1 package then the maximum connection speed is 55mb down and 10mb up  to get a faster  connection speed you need fibre 2 and line capable of faster than 55mb

That's what I was afraid of - the website doesn't offer Fibre 2 when I enter my details only Fibre 1, I guess I'll have to talk directly to BT to find out if they can offer Fibre 2 or not as the router stats imply that I can do better than 50Mbps.

your faster speed is due to the activation of G.INP

Your Plusnet service is syncing at around 65Mb, so you must be on whatever they call their upper tier package 80/20, I don’t know why you are only being offered Fibre 1 ( 55Mb ) with BT , but if you are only seeing 55Mb throughput from your 65Mb sync, perhaps the real world difference between a ‘Fibre 1’, 55Mb service wouldn’t be that noticeable ( although the upload would be 10Mb compared to the 17Mb with PN ), I don’t know why you think fibre 1 is 50Mb, it’s 55Mb, but IMHO the BT site isn’t the clearest , and seems to offer what it thinks you want rather than all products available, perhaps the easiest thing to do is call and ask for Fibre 2, you may even get an inducement to chose BT .

BT changed the estimate speed checker, so your line might be able to do more but BT are being cautious, if you do switch and the line is stable, you'd be able to upgrade later.
