Upgrading Upstream Speed

Are there any services available Anywhere that will give more than 256k Upstream speed?

Apart from these really fancy expensive things or business packages... :lol:

Were BT supposed to be upgrading exchanges or something...?

Cheers!
Dave.

Upgrading Upstream Speed

Hi,

The SDSL services offer faster upload speeds, but they aren't cheap.

For ADSL, faster upload speeds are just around the corner. Next week sees the start of the DSL Max trials which offer faster uploads. The customers in the trial areas are being contacted about this.

The trial is expected to expand in to more exchanges a little way into the trial and we'll contact customers then in the appropriate areas, with availability nationwide expected in the spring.

We also have a couple of LLU trials coming soon, which will also offer both faster download and upload speed. Again nearer the time we'll be contacting the customers in the trial areas.

Sounds good...

What sort of price increases will this mean when these services become available..?

And what increases in ustream speed... would it be up to 512kbps..? Or even higher!

Thanks for the quick response,
Dave.

Upgrading Upstream Speed

It depends on what account type you have, what your phone line stats are and which of the services are available to you.

For DSL Max, the uploads will be up 448kbps for most customers. For some of the business accounts it'll be up to 832kbps upload (those on 20:1 IPStream Office).

I'm not sure about the speeds on the LLU services, I'll have to check up on that.

Upgrading Upstream Speed

LLU from the likes of UKOnline are 512K upload with the down load being whatever your line will take.

Currently running at 512 k bps/5.5 m bps
