FTTC Finally here–thanks to BT and Plusnet

Well, it’s been a long time coming, but we finally got our Fibre-To-The-Cabinet hooked up yesterday. After some technical issues, chats with Plusnet and two very, very helpful BT engineers, we finally got connected. The different in speed was apparent immediately.

I used www.speedtest.net to take two speed checks. One before the upgrade and one after.

Before

Current Broadband Speed

After

This is more than 10x faster, which makes me very happy indeed. The speed has actually gone down since yesterday, but Plusnet said it would take 48 hours for the speed to settle so by the weekend it should be fully speed!
