      I hope that you have extended to include the matching shoes or boots as well.

      I was out of contract. I had to enter a new 12 month agreement for SBUF

      Perhaps what may be confusing many people is the speeds that FTTC has been delivered at and what it is now being delivered at.

      Take last year, for example, the maximum connection speed was 40mb/s, but in fairness it was an 'up to' 40mb/s product (i.e. BT Infinity, PlusNet Fibre) that was offered. If you lived a long distance from the green street cabinet, then your speed would drop off and you might get 25mb/s or less.

      With the recent changes incorporated, the potential FTTC connection speeds are now 'up to' 80mb/s. Like ADSL1 uses a small frequency bandwidth, compared with ADSL2+, the faster connection actually uses a wider bandwidth than previously. This means that if you went to BT Infinity right now, you could get a connection speed at up to 80mb/s down & 20mb/s up.

      Many ISPs have not agreed to go up to this speed yet and instead they are being capped at 40mb/s.

      Currently Sky are offering a capped 40mb/s connection as part of the trial. This is likely to stay the same for a period of time after the product is launched in April. There are various rumours circulating about when Sky will offer an increase in the connection speed. Currently no one can be 100% certain of this.

      When Sky do offer the 'up to' 80mb/s speed, then we shall see a lot more variety in connection speeds. Until then, most people are going to get 40mb/s.
      Oh I know that there is a difference. What I meant was, how will distance affect what my line is capable of compared to the maximum. So if max is 80, would I get 80 at a distance of say 300m from fibre cab. For 40 like you say they can just use the maximum available and simply cap it at 40 so wouldn't know.

      I'm just thinking ahead. Don't want to end up with another 'upto' situation where I'm far off the maximum some time soon. Speeds are being doubled by one or two ISPs this year and the next, wouldn't want to get left behind as they get doubled lol

      Re: Sky Fibre connection

      I all honesty, I personally have no idea what the speeds will increase to and how that will relate to distance. This is for both the 'up to 40' and 'up to 80' connection speeds. My guess has been that most people will receive a connection speed of 40mb/s or above with this recent change, but I haven't been studying the details.

      After a very quick search, I have found the following graph:



      Hopefully this will help some people, but do remember that ADSL1, 2 & 2+ distances are from the telephone exchange, whilst vDSL & vDSL2 are from the cabinet. This graph was copied from this page: FTTC Technology | Technologies | LineBroker

      Please do read the article, it will explain things in more depth.

      Long time lurker on here so I thought it was about time to contribute

      Whilst searching for line length vs speed I found this pdf. The graph on page 5 appears a lot more optimistic than that graph. BT use profile 8c apparently.

      Edited: BT are now using 17a, so the graph is on page 6
