I have a very healthy 40/2 product from TT - VDSL2
From install I had over 50 days solid connection almost maxing the 40 down and 2 up (37.9Mbps (4.7KB/s) and 1.8Mbps (229KB/s)
This has now been delivered as we now offer an up to 10mb upload speed for our faster fibre package.
Get more ideas related to:
There is a typo in the second line (37.9Mbps is OBVIOUSLY 4.7MB/s)
and the form does not lik bbcode with html
I think TT are restricted by the packages Openreach offer. The next package up from 38/2 is 38/10. Personally I would prefer TT added the 55/10 package as a boost.
I guess it is just the way the pricing works. You have to pay to enter the next tier no matter how much you can actually use. Openreach wholesale costs:
40/10 £8.80 (+£0.60)
55/10 £10.08 (+£1.80)
80/20 £11.94 (+£3.66)
40/2 is the entry-level service. I agree that 40/10 would be a better entry-level to meet modern use cases. 55/10 is a nice midrange for those that want a little more, but do not need, or cannot achieve the full 80/20.
However, if TT did make changes to the service offering they are most likely to do it alongside a price increase. This enables them to shout about the service improvements, whilst wispering about the price increase.
Hey @digitalsection thanks for the suggestion, we're looking into this with our products team, we'll keep you posted as we get more info.
Hi Michelle, thanks for advising this is beig discussed.
Just to clarify: I am on the 40Mbps package, and receive almost the full 40Mbps (37-39Mbps on average) and my upload is 1.8Mbps
My DL sync to the router is 59Mbps (capped at 40Mbps)
My UL sync to the router is 7Mbps (cappped at 2Mbps)
THis is exactly what I am paying for and have had excellent service since it was sinstallled some 80 days ago.
I think if TT could lift the UL speed cap from 2Mbps to say 3 or even 4Mbps it would be superb, it would make any uploading of videos (especially HD videos from weddings/birthdays to friends and people who could not attend so much quicker and most users consume more download bandwidth than upload bandwidth..
Hey @digitalsection, Thanks for your suggestion, this is something that we are looking into in the future, however we don't have any specific dates/product information as yet. As soon as we have more info then we'll keep you updated.
Woohoo! Good news.
Latest update: AcceptedHey @digitalsection, Thanks for your suggestion, this is something that we are looking into in the future, however we don't have any specific dates/product information as yet. As soon as we have more info then we'll keep you updated.
I know you don't have any specific dates but can you give a rough timescale? People have to commit to contract lengths of 1-2 years and so some indication would help when considering contract terms and renewals. Are we likely to see this within 6 months, in 6-12 months time, or could we be waiting more than a year?
