      LLU Speeds v. ADSL2 Speeds

      Probably one for the techies.

      My understanding is that the MAX product uses LLU and implements ADSL2+ and the others use ADLS2.

      The theoretical maximum speed which the ISP support is 8mb for standard ADSL2 and 16mb for LLU / ADSL2+.

      Obiously this will be because of different technologies, compression alogrithms, etc.

      Bearing in mind that they are different technologies, would I be right in assuming that on the same line - say 1.9km from the exchange, the MAX product with LLU would support higher real life speeds than a non LLU connection?

      I receive the same speeds on ADSL2+ that I do on ADSL... strange that. Apparently because my SNR is 6db at 8mb on both technologies.

      the max sky product (16mb) uses llu and adsl2+

      standard adsl is 8mb (maximum speed)

      on the same line, the llu adsl2+ product should provide faster speed due to the technology used.


      hope that makes it clearer,.

      I was told by Sky That I would be able to get upto 3.1Mbps on my line.

      Are you suggesting that if I opted for the LLU ADSL2+ (MAX) package, I would be able to get the full 3.1Mpbs OR higher than 3.1
      Mbps (I don't think it would be higher but not shure)
      What I'm getting at is, Does the 3.1Mbps figure that my line is capbale of not apply to the LLU ADSL2+ ? so therefore LLU ADSL+ would have its own higher estimated speed (well above 3.1Mbps in my case)

      I wanted to go for the MAX package, but thought there wasn't any point if my line is cable of around 3.1Mbps..
      Went for MID

      @ Ronnie

      I'm not sure how they gave you an estimated figure of 3.1mb and me 6.3mb when we only live 50 mtrs apart.

      MAX was better for me anyway because of download limits on the other packages, and I figure I should get better speeds than the 2.3 that the BT site estimates for ADSL2.

      There's a good chart on this page which shows the theoretical maximum speeds based upon distances from your exchange. Obviously this is reliant on line quality too, but this gives a decent idea.

      You can get a rough idea of your distances from your exchange by checking on Sam Knows. Click on the Availability Checker button, then search by postcode. Then click the Locality button to see your distance from the exchange.

      Yeah I have been wondering the same thing, I also have the BT BB Mastersocket etc.. similar to yours, so I don't think there should be anything to do with wiring on my end.

      The one advantage that ADSL2+ on an LLU connection is the abbility for long liners to get faster speeds that they would ever be able to get on ISP Stream Max Adsl.

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      The web page that Kansalis indicated shows the difference between ADSL2 and ADSL2+as being almost double at 1.9km which is the distance from the exchance for both myself and Ronnie.

      Ronnie, when she gave you the estimated speed, were you talking about the mid package or did you start by saying you wanted MAX - could it be that she did the estimate for the wrong product....?

      Oh, and while we're here, the woman I spoke to didn't know what I meant by activation. When should you find out about the activation date?
