New Limits - will i be able to have 1meg!

I know that the info on adsl gude.org isnt offical yet, but with the planned limits of 512k going up to 75db and 1meg going up to 60db, will i be able to get 1meg?

My current db is spot on 60db.

If so will it be a manual upgrade or just do it via the normal upgrade?

Thanks
Simon

Well, yes. If the limit is going to be 60dB, and your readings are 60dB, then it sounds OK to me.

The leaked figures quoted are still provisional so may still change.

You probably have to wait a couple of months before the new figures are announced by BT. It is unlikely to happen until at least the MK extended reach trials are completed and this is planned for the end of sept 04.

There's hope after all then, I get around 47db at the moment, so I may yet be able to get a 1MB line. Cheesy

Is anyone from PlusNet able to say when the new limits are likely to come into effect?

it's more when BT says they will, probably due to work load as I wouldn't be a BT engineer this autum. As they'll be worked off their under paid rears with all the upgrades that will take place.

So fair warning to PN you will have a lot of people upgrading this Sept/Oct, so make sure you reading from the same script Wink
