GEA line test


Could someone from the plusnet team rune a GEA line test and post the results please

Interested in estimated line length.
On the fibre checker the line speed has increased from 38ish to 47mb over the years.
Wondering if my line has done a tour of the estate before it was rerouted and that’s why I can’t get anywhere near 70+mb

Originally on my new build we were meant to be connected to the cabinet very close to us (this cabinet still not got fibre (6 years now) but rest of the estate now is having FTTP installed over the past couple of months) but due to delays on the Openreach ground work our line was connected with some others houses to another cabinet (FTTC ENABALED) down the road. Did ask Openreach if they plan to put FTTP on my street but no plans to only the rest of the estate.
