Does poor quality dial-up line equal poor quality broadband connection?

Discussion in 'Broadband' started by Rab C, Nov 7, 2005.

  1. True, I'd forgotten about fallback mode. But I had half-remembered, hence
    my statement about the more stringent line requirement for HH to allow for
    "proper" ringing and adequate d.c. feed in fallback mode.

    Sorry once again I must disagree with you, there have been occaisions
    conversions from HH to PSTN & ADSL have failed. You've got to remember
    that they are 2 different technologies working at 2 different
    frequencies so what may work for one doesn't neccesarily mean it will
    work for the other...

    That's more like it! Plugging the modem directly into the test socket
    behind the face plate gives me a connection speed of 44k. That's what I
    was used at my previous address. I can live with that until broadband
    comes along next month.

    Many thanks for all the assistance here, it's appreciated.

    Remember to get BT in to remove the offending article (should be free of
    charge)..
