If that is what I think it is, an Openreach engineer told me they have an active trial of new software around Martlesham and so far it has been working well.

They also have a trial to a block of flats at 1Gb.

There are a couple that are sort-of combined. First is G.INP, which is a way of dealing with the short error bursts on lines that usually led to a line being 'banded' or "managed" down to stability by reducing sync speed (done by a system called DLM).

The second is Vectoring that's being tested and rolled out eventually that deals with crosstalk on the lines. Basically the more lines that are activated on a cabinet, the more the lines interfere with each other which leads to line sync speed being reduced (think of it like lots of people being in a room together talking away - gets harder to hear each other so you have to repeat stuff a lot).

Vectoring fixes that.

Those that HAD their full speed get it back. Those that are at top profile speed potentially have the ability to upgrade or be upgraded to faster speeds (100/110/120/130).

I've been thinking of upgrading to infinity as our main box (big green thing?)has been upgraded about 2-300 yards away. The cables coming from the pole in my bag garden are still the same so do they need upgraded or do they just remain?
We have brilliant 4g where I stay and wish I could just get a dongle that plugged in and used instead of having bt at all as we never use the house phone so the 16.99 rental is just a waste.

We've been on Infinity for a while now. It's fibre to the green cabinet then just the normal phone line to your house. Can't you use your phone as a wifi hub? I've used my galaxy s3 for the internet on my laptop when staying away, either connected by usb lead or wifi.

Sweet. Doesn't affect me as I'm well above my profile anyhow, but it would benefit my in-laws and own family greatly.

Hope they sort it out! The downer is most people can't see what sync they get or details about the line with FTTC connection. I got a modem off ebay and flashed it with a custom software that unlocks it - it's shown an interesting set of stats over the last year and it's mega when it comes to troubleshooting problems.
