      G.DMT / ADSL2+ / LLU My Connection/ Exchange

      Hi all,
      Im fairly new to Sky but am learning quickly from some of the great forum users on here!

      Another question i've been wondering is that im currently getting the full 16Mb connection on Sky Max. My exchange according to SamKnows is enabled with:

      ADSL: Yes
      SDSL: Yes
      LLU services: Yes

      21CN WBC status: RFS date set : 31/03/2010
      21CN PSTN switchover target: Q2 2011

      Which of these services am i connected by? i assume its LLU which from what i gather uses G.DMT and ADSL2+?

      Is my exchange ADSL2+ enabled or is that what is being enabled "31/03/2010" with the "Wholesale Broadband Connect"

      If its not ADSL2+ enabled how am i getting the 16Mb speed as i though G.DMT was limited to around 12Mb with sky?

      Sorry if its a daft question but im enjoying learning it and helping out where i can

      Sky use LLU to provide base, Everyday and unlimited.

      WBC is BT's version of LLU and has nothing to do with sky Broadband LLU.

      Your connection will be set to ADSL2+ with a connection of 16Mb, soon to be up to 20Mb.
      Also G.DMT does have a max of 12Mb, but sky limit this to 8Mb on there serivce.


      Hope this info helps.

      thanks for all of that

      So i guess when SamKnows says my exchange is ADSL enabled it also means ADSL2+ enabled too? Or is it that fact that its unbundled for Sky use?

      The ADSL2+ comes from the sky LLU equipment, You can only get ADSL2+ if you exchange is unbundled by sky.

      You can only get ADSL2+ if you exchange is unbundled by sky.
      Or one of the other ISPs who have unbundled exchanges such as O2, BE, Eclipse etc.
