      According to the BT site my cabinet is active from the 25th Jan but the 'checker' says that I should get 3mbps . That's what I get now on Sky's LLU service from the exchange 3 miles away.

      I know they are a bit conservative with the estimates but....really???

      Everyone should get aleast 15Mb as this is the point that BT have set, not sure what is called, something like the fault level anything under this is investigated.
      Connected at 17Mbps on sky unlimited
