      Quick help

      Hi, im waiting for my broadband to be activated on my new line as i have just moved houses. I called up my ISP to ask for an estimation and they say that BT estimate for my line is 16mb. However, the advisor also stated that my line would most probably sync a meg or two lower. I know that line attenuation would give more accuracy but i have yet to be activated- using mobile broadband incase you're wondering.

      So how accurate are BT estimates? My old line was estimated 4mb and i got 8mb but generally are the estimates higher than actual speed or lower?

      Thanks

      It is just that, an estimate, it could be miles off one way or the other or spot on, there is no way to tell.

      On the plus side the estimate is quite good.
