MaxDSL Upgrade

Sorry if this has been asked before but I was just checking my exchange for home and work and noticed that my home exchange is shown as amber and my work exchange is shown as red. Does this mean anything?

MaxDSL Upgrade

I assume you mean that your vp capacity or port capacity is red/amber

It means that you may experience some speed issues or disconnections, especially during peak times

No I'm reffering to the MAX ugrade information provided by Plusnet in the exchange status checker.

It says:

"BT has published DSL Max upgrade information for this exchange
Click here for further details"

If I click in to it, i get the following message:

Upgrade Status
Status: Amber
BT have started enabling this exchange for Max DSL products.
Currently, there is an estimated completion date of 31/03/06.

I was reffering to the word amber as some exchanges are red.

This is from another exchange near me:

Upgrade Status
Status: Red
BT are planning on enabling this exchange for Max DSL products.
Currently, they have given an estimated date of 31/03/06 for this.
Please note: This is the default date from BT and may change

Does this mean. Does this mean my exchange is ready to go live as it says "BT have started enabling this exchange for Max DSL products."

ah right i apologise, I assumed the maxDSL was either red or green, The amber will mean that BT have begun work on your exchange which should hopefull be done in the next few days

The red exchange will be upgraded in the next few weeks

Hi strathbungo1, thank you for the info.

Does this mean my exchange will be ready once the work is complete? I assume once it is ready it will be then down to the ISP to move me on to 8MB?
