Welcome to Fibre!

I'd already run the cabling for him so when the Openreach engineer turned up it took him all of 10 minutes to connect me and demonstrate a maximum possible downstream rate of around 90Mb  Smiley.
Hooked things up and logged on to find I was still capped at around 5.5Mb from the pre-fibre connection.
Phoned PN and James kindly reset my rate on the spot.
37Mb will do nicely thank you  Smiley and BT's speedtester is giving a consistent 36.5Mb.
My goodness haven't things come on since I joined Force9 all those years ago and thought that upgrading to my Sportster Faxmodem 33.6k was fast! (Still got it too just in case .....).

37's OK but why not jump on the 80/20 trial and really see what your line can do?  Smiley

I'll wait a bit and make sure it settles in nice and stably first. So far so good though - rock steady.  Smiley
TBH though 40Mb comfortably exceeds my current needs so it would be more for tecchy interest.
