      Hi, All the data is accurate and live customer data. The fluctuations you are identifying is the line quality having an affect on the speeds.

      Hope this helps.

      Re: Origin shows what speeds VDSL2 can achieve

      I need to pop out in a minute and take my wife to work. On the way home I think I'll detour to where my fibre cabinet is and reset my cars trip computer to 0.0 and see how far it is from my house (looking at where all the houses are in relation to the cabinet I suspect it is straight line)

      EDIT: It's just over 0.3 miles, so I make that ~500 metres give or take some margin of error, could be around the 76mbps mark according to the table in the OP. Seems consistent with the reading of 70mbps I was getting on that "odd day" when the BT Wholesale checker was giving me lovely big numbers to drool over.

      is that a straight line? as with my cab, is <100m going the shortest route to my flat but looking at my max attainable sync (about 96Mbps) this would suggest that my line actually goes like a big U shape instead of ~. If that makes any sense

      Sorry but isn't that just a little OTT!? :/

      In my last house our CAB was right outside the house - 5 meters from the PC

      Why is it OTT?

      Why not know these things?

      Car Odometers are not really that accurate.

      If you really must know, use the Google Earth program. It has a 'Ruler' tool which allows you to place multiple points and work out your actual distance that way.

      However, please remember that if the wiring between your old cabinet and you home is old, subject to electrical interference or aluminium, then I would suggest that you won't get as good a signal as in the table.
