I have just been connected to fibre broadband with a BT engineer fitting a BT Modem.
Everything works but my download speed is now 56Kb - is it possible that I still have standard broadband and not fibre on my line?
I have checked with the modem direct to the laptop and via wireless.
I do not bother with speed testers, I start an iPlayer download and within a couple of minutes it tells me my actual download speed, which is what I am interested in.
Main question is - would I get an internet connection if standard broadband was still on my line with a fibre modem?
If you want positive data then do an independent speed check as advised above. That is the only way to resolve the position. If this is the best you can achieve with a fibre connection then a call to BT is in order.
How have you connected the output of the BT Modem. It is normal to connect it to the WAN port of your router not a LAN port.
