You won't need to be connected to an LLU exchange to get 8Mbps unless you are with an LLU ISP. PlusNet is not one. PlusNet's 8Mbps products will be delivered by BTs hardware.

Exchange upgrade List

BT are currently trialling 8Mb (with Plusnet) on a small number of exchanges. The participants have already been selected (by BT).

Once this trial is completed, we can expect a full launch across the network towards late Q3-Q4 this year. This is when Plusnet will be able to offer speeds of up to 8Mb to anyone with a BT line.

Does anyone know of a list to show maximum speeds available from exchanges?

Which ones are doing the 8Mbps trials for example? Is there a list of exchanges which will be rolled out after the trials ?

Is there an online list of telephone numbers covered by each exchange?

TIA

I think this page tells you everything PlusNET knows about the 8Mb trials at the moment.

What sort of list of telephone numbers are you refering to?

I have lots of information available in the exchange check, with only tiny ammounts of its potential used.

I suppose I'm particularly interested in which exchange my telephone number is associated with and when it will be upgraded and, once it is upgraded, what is the maximum speed I'll be able to achieve given my location compared to that of the exchange.

The sort of information that would stop me asking questions for a while.

Input your phone number into the usertools exchange checker. It should tell you which exchange you are connected to and provide the shortcode (4 to 6 characters long, by the exchange activation date).

You can then search the PDF for this code. Make sure you click find again, as it may be listed multiple times.

If it is listed multiple times, your exchange has more than one DSLAM. It is unknown if you can find out which DSLAM ID you are on, though we are trying to see if this information is obtainable.
