The Bt exchange in Amlwch has been upgraded to provide ADSL+2. In theory this should enable local users to get an “up to” 24Mb service as opposed to the “up to” 8MB service that they have been able to receive up to now.
The upgrade in speed which you are able to get depends on the copper line distance and quality from the exchange. One way of looking at this is to log into your router and find the attenuation level. For me this was 62.9 db. The lower the attenuation level the higher broadband speed you can expect.
So on ADSL I was getting about 1.4 Mbps speed
After the upgrade to ADLS yesterday my attenuation has dropped to around 58 and my speed has increased to around 2.4 Mbps.
Ok 2.4 is not blistering fast but it is a 70% increase in speed.
I will see how the increased speed pans out in the following few days as it can take up to 10 days for the line to re tune itself to the best possible speed.
if anyone else in Amlwch has seen an increase in there speed I would also like to know.
