    ive just checked what im getting and its accurate for the moment (8mb) but at the end of the month be are coming online according to the checker im 700m from the exchange and (after using google maps to workout the line distance) im 0.8km from the exchange so fingers crossed i could be making the leap from 8mb to 24mb

    same here. i'm 0.9km away from the exchange but 3km line length.

    i get 9mb on a 16mb service which is pretty shitty to say i got 8mb on an 8mb service.

    but 9mb unlimited download for £10 a month... i'm not compalining!

    According to BT Wholesale, your phone line should be able to support a 6.5Mbps or greater ADSL connection via ADSL Max.

    You are approximately 224 metres from the exchange. Note that this is the straight line distance - the actual cable length will be longer!

    I get @ 7mbps

    According to BT Wholesale, your phone line should be able to support a 6Mbps or greater ADSL connection via ADSL Max.
    That's all the standard ADSL users in my street do manage to get, ADSL2+ on the other hand gives me 17Mbit downstream (and 1.4Mbit upstream).

    ISP = O2 (Be)

    Cost = £15 per month inc VAT

    SamKnows distance = 769 metres

    Actual distance = just over 1KM (according to BT engineer).
    Understeer is when you hit a wall with the front of your car
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of your car
    Horsepower is how fast your car hits the wall
    Torque is how far your car sends the wall across the field once you've hit it

    You are approximately 297 metres from the exchange. Note that this is the straight line distance - the actual cable length will be longer!

    I am on Be, and get 20mb from a 24mb connection.
