Re: [DSL] Good News - DSL upgrades

I don't need the full 15/10. I just need something with a higher upload speed than 1mbps. Even getting 3-4 mbps up would be great.

But are you sure you can even get VDSL ? Just because the website says 15/10... maybe you area doesn't have VDSL to start off with.

How do I find out? One of my neighbors works for Bell. He mentioned we have FTTN but not FTTH in our area. Does that help?

You should go in the bell direct forum here on DSLR... and ask what you qualify with and if he can do a neighbour check to see what speed they have. You could be on FTTN, but if there's no VDSL2 card then it's useless. In order to have more then 1mbps upload with Bell you need to have at least VDSL2 or FTTH.

Good advice. I asked on the Bell Direct forum as you mentioned and it turns out VDSL2 is not available in my area

I'm a bit surprised. There are million dollar homes in my area (not my own) and all construction is less than 7 years old. You'd figure they'd put out the latest technology...

Anyway, what do I do now? Just sit and wait a couple of years?

Thanks,

It's hard to say without knowing why.. some of the most expensive homes in the US and UK do not have high speed connectivity because the neighborhood residence do not want the remotes in their neighborhood. I wouldn't be surprised if that was not the case for some Canadian neighborhoods too.
