Broadband Noise Levels?!

  Bombjester 20:03 09 Jun 2004

Hi folks,

I have just moved into a brand new home in a non-NTL area so had to sign up with BT. I was on Broadband with NTL and wanted to go on Broadband again. I contacted Wanadoo who seemed to have the best package available and they signed me up right away. A fortnight later they said I could not have BB because the "noise level on my BT line was over 60." Whatever this means. I contacted BT who said they could see no problems on their side.

Has anyone had this problem before? Does anyone know what it all means? Does anyone know if I will be able to get Broadband again, and if so, from who?

Thanks for your help in advance.

60 is too high. I strongly suggest you try with Nildram who appear to have mayor "clout" with BT. click here for my experiences earlier this year now fully sorted.

BT are carrying out a experiment in the Milton Keynes area to test the practical maximum range for radsl. They are testing up to 10km line length, this bodes well for people just over the current 60db limit.
