Today, the theoretical line length for a 512k
xDSL service was increased from 5.5km to 6km. This may have meant
that the number of registrations would have increased. Unfortunately
this didn't happen
probably because the Lhanbryde exchange doesn't extend out further
than about 5km... Never mind.
However, what this does mean that almost everyone
on the Lhanbryde exchange will be able to get ADSL Broadband. Being
right at the end of the wire heading out to Garmouth (line length
4.9km) the basic test for xDSL Broadband on my line now shows as
a definate for a 512k service whereas before it was a maybe.. Woohoo!
So for anyone who hasn't registered because they
believe they are too far away, then register now! There is every
chance you will be able to recieve Broadband!
P.s. Latest news on triggers is at 'least' another
month but hopefulyl by the end of the year.. Argh!
