No, not at all. It is interesting to see how the progress is made . . . be it slowly or ever more slower.

Do you have a date for when your service will be activated?  :)

Or does the computer still say "no"?  :-X

Hehe. Well I ordered the minute Openreach advised me that the batch job had updated to tell SPs they could order. So I am hoping itíll be working 7-10 working days! I may be on fibre before the the end of next week! I must warn you I will then have loads of questions about line stabilisation etc ;)

100m is apparently the max distance, but the closer the better really.

60m is quite long.

It shouldn't make a huge difference to your speeds.

Not quite sure I would agree with that, I agree with ronski where it depends on the overall line length.

if the line is short enough it will make potentially zero affect to speeds, whilst if the line is long enough it can make a large effect (10s of mbits) as at certain distance points the tail off is more rapid.

It also will likely increase the impact of crosstalk as every tie pair between the cabinets on a full cabinet is carrying vdsl signal, vs in a typical pair bundle many will be voice/adsl only and no source of crosstalk.  The longer that distance between the two cabinets, the more chance of crosstalk.

With that said tho, its probably not worth fussing over as in the grand scheme of things this will be a massive improvement over legacy ADSL services.

Absolutely - very much looking forward to it. The screenshot of the wholesale checker is particular to my line and apparently includes the confirmed tie cable length of ...105m!

Having such a stable and fast ADSL service well in excess of any estimates shown on the checker - I received 14 and the checker estimates ďup to 6Ē would hopefully suggest that my copper is nice and shiny and new , so hoping for the higher end of that clean VDSL range!

Personally I think its plausible you will early on exceed the upper estimate, taking into account x DB (3db target) and you been the first install.

However i also expect your lines to crosstalk with each other :(.

But we will see, keep us updated please.  Thanks for the photos etc. :)

No problem I am pleased you have found my photos interesting - after all itís one cabinet of about 600,000 now!

When you say my lines, is this on the basis I am ordering 2 VDSLs? If so, that idea is on hold for the moment for that reason (and also because I am sure I will see such an increase in speed on VDSL that I may be blown away too much to even care about taking myself over the 100mb barrier. If I was to do it, Iíd probably just do it with a little 40/10 service as opposed to 2 x 80/20s. Decisions decisions...
