[DSL] Can Bell Move You Off FTTN Remotes?

I currently have a 6MB/s connection. If I switch to 15/1 or 25/10 FTTN, can Bell decide to move me from the FTTN remote to a remote that's further away 3-6 months down the road the way they can now?

When you subscribe to a FTTN tier, you're guaranteed that spot once you have it.

Thanks. I wasn't sure if Bell was allowed to pull the same stunts with FTTN.

The why are the FFTN plans still "up to"?
Gas can do 15/1 no problem.

Because you are still at the mercy of distance and line quality... You can have a remote thats still far enough from you not to be able to get full 15meg, but can do 10 quite nicely and reliably...

from a wiring perspective is there any different between "legacy 6 mbit" and ADSL2+ 15mbit? Aren't they both FTTN, technically, and both using the ATM protocol?

Both are ATM unless you're on a VDSL2 15/10 profile.

Also, you could be plug at the CO or FTTN.

Legacy = ADSL1 profile and no guarantee that you will be on any sort of remote whatsoever.
FTTN 7/1 = ADSL2+ profile and guarantee that you will be on a remote if one is necessary to get the speed.

ADSL1 uses ~1.2MHz of spectrum for baseband signaling with a maximum theoretical bandwidth of 8Mbps while ADSL2+ uses ~2.2MHz with 24Mbps max theoretical bandwidth.

VDSL2 still uses DMTM signaling and the biggest difference aside from no longer requiring ATM encapsulation is that baseband bandwidth is extended to 8/13/17/30MHz.
