Ok I get fttc but I am one mile from cabinet and the cabling from cabinet to my house i think is made from recyled lada's. BT told me I could have fttc but not Infinity as too far away and download would be 14 meg -19 meg and upload about 1.3meg ($hit I know) so I went ahead as I have plex and wanted to give back. they fitted the fttc and actual speeds were 10meg and 0.8 and I went mental.
I went on about miss selling blah blah blah and took it to exec office - they tried to help and got it up to 12meg/1meg but pings about 50ms, anyway they agreed that this was still shy of "minimum advertised" and offered me a free get out of contract as they said that line was "impacted" and nothing further could be done.
I called other internet company who said - if line is "impacted" then simple sollution would be buy new line (which they had on special offer for £25) and then put a cease on old line, seemed to make sense at time. BT rucked up three times and said they had no spare lines to route and gave up twice, third visit they did a "divert" from some other pole up the road to mine and fitted that, however this line has a 5v "battery" on both cables, they say this is below the threshold of where they have to do anything about it but means my "new line" is even worse than the old, I get 9.5meg/0.9meg so I dont want to give up my old line as that is the best one (but has a get out clause on it till end of this month). the new one I am stuck to for 18months. To top it all on new line I was given the telephone number of the local school so until that was resolved I had loads of messages that little bobby wasnt coming to school today as he had the skitters.
Anyway, do I spend £230 on a load balancing duel wan router such as the Draytek 2860n plus, and keep paying two fibre connections - a lot of expense but will it be good?
or can somebody give me any other ideas.
