When do I get 2mb

I am amazed that my local area do not have 2mb connection as a minimum. I live in Lower Earley which is one of the biggest housing complexes in the UK. I know that others around Reading have up to 8mb connection and certainly 2mb. Yet here I am after as couple of years still on 1MB

Why is this and how can it be!!!!

When do I get 2mb

Hi there,

There are a couple of possible reasons. Either BT havent gotten around to upgrading your line or your line is not capable of supporting a speed faster than 1mb at present.

If its the former, then BT are in the process of a final mop of of customers who were missed out in the original upgrade.

If your modem or router can provide your line stats, we might get an idea of what your line will support.

If you can, post those details and we'll see what we can determine.

I will take a look when I get home and see if the router provides any information. It is a Netgear 834G.

It does tell me that the connection is 1mb and upload is 256kb on the main screen. I will see if there are any other stats. What in particular am I looking for?
