LLU or not?
Hi, I was wondering if anybody could help with this query. Iím singed up to Connect and after checking the BT order page it shows up as Items in this order as I understand all ADSL connections now appear as LLU but Iíve not seen the Provide SMPF before. Easynet have their own equipment in the exchange however itís only upto 8MBs is it possible Iíve been moved over to that DSLAM?
Description Product name
PROVIDE LLU LINE SHARE PSTN
PROVIDE PROVIDE SMPF

SMPF and Line Share are for LLU products. It might be worth while contacting accounts and check your billing.

Thanks for the reply, Iíve now done a line test and it confirms Iím LLU although Sky say my package is Connect as thatís the only package available and that leaves me confused how can I be LLU and not on Skyís network?

However, your line is currently unbundled by an LLU operator such as Be, Bulldog or Easynet (SMPF LLU). Moving to another provider may require a cease and re-provide, which may result in loss of service for up to two weeks.Ē
I know for certain the line has been LLUíd as BT have confirmed this but canít understand how if Sky/Easynet arenít apparently there.

Been doing a bit of reading and I think you might have answered your own question.
Easynet have been in the game for quite some time.Is it possible your exchange was an early installation and is ADSL only?
SMPF=Shared Metallic Path Facility to allow the BT voice and the broadband signal to share the same line --part of the unbundling process.
BT have a similar splitting process for their ADSL.
Is it possible that Sky use the term 'Connect' to mean Easynet ADSL rather than BT ADSL in the case of your exchange.
It seems most other providers have used ADSL2 from the start.Is it possible that LLU has become a poor description for ADSL2?
I'm afraid I haven't explained this very well and am happy to be shot down/corrected if the theory is not correct.
I did find this checker Prodigy Networks from,I think,somewhere on this forum which gives more information about the exchange.

Odd, Are you 100% sure you're on the THFJ exchange?
