Hi I have found this site and ran its checker ... I live in a Town in West Lothian that has around a 10,000 population ...
here is the result:-....
Results for exchange: Whitburn Congestion Congestion status on this exchange is RED.
Your telephone line has been identified as being on a congested exchange. If you are receiving varying speeds between 400kbs - 2000kbs at different times of the day this is likely to be a result of the congestion issue.
A provisional date of Oct 7, 2006 has been set for upgrading this exchange. Major Service Outages There are no Major Service Outages on your line at this present time"
so , does anyone know what this means "A provisional date of Oct 7, 2006 has been set for upgrading this exchange." im wondering if my broadband will be affected ??
I would expect it means that your exchange will have more equipment installed to allow more people to enjoy the broadband at more reasonable speeds. My exchange says it will be done on the 12th using that site however I am dubious about the accuracy.
