      Bradwell Abbey (Milton Keynes) - Performance issues?

      Hi

      Just wondering if anyone with Sky Fibre in MK on the Bradwell Abbey has noticed a drop in performance in the last two weeks (slower download speeds/packet loss/increased pings)?

      There is an issue for FTTP/H users with the small number of ISPs offering the product aware of the issue - which has been reported to BT. We are interested if it is affecting any FTTC users too as we believe there are possible capacity issues (which is worrying as Bradwell Abbey is a node for BT).

      Thanks

      I live in Bradwell Village, my fiber has been fine I think, and my connection speed at my eci modem (hacked) has remained constant. That being said, I think I might be connected to Wolverton.

      Edit: Can confirm attached to Wolverton, Specifically to cabinet 28. (Any idea how I can find out where this cabinet is?)

      Hi

      You should be able to check on https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/pls/ad...hecker.welcome (hopefully) which exchange you are connected to.

      The connection speed may remain constant, but the actual download speed (via BT speed test/speedtest.net) etc has dropped for FTTP/H users on Bradwell Abbey during peak times - which it should not be doing.

      Which estates around here have FTTP? Will be good to bare in mind when I next move house!

      It will largely depend where the congestion is as to if it will affect sky users or not

      If its in the OPenreach access network it may do but if its BTWholesales connectivity out of the exchange to the rest of the network that's the problem then it shouldn't affect sky
