      Download speed 5.5Mb max so what product

      I've just been told by someone at BT that for my postcode the max I can expect is 5.5 Mb (Upminster exchange) so is it still worth me ordering the Max package or would I be better of with the Mid.
      I live about 1.35 km from the exchange so has anyone got any idea of the max speed I am likely to get .

      Thanks for any advice

      Have a look at this THREAD it will give you an indication of what you should expect. If your distance is line length and not 'crow flies' you will do much better that 5.5.

      It's all down to how much you download then, Mid will give a 40gb download limit, My brother hammers the hell out out of mine and I think he has only downloaded about 28gb in a month.
