    How fast is your broadband connection? No matter how quick it may be, we doubt you recorded anything on Speedtest.net that's close to what BT claims to have achieved in a recent trail using an existing fiber connection that connected two locations about 80 miles apart. In their press release, BT said that in October and November of 2013, the UK broadband provider worked with Alcatel-Lucent on their super high speed broadband research project, which used a fiber connection that went from BT's Adastral Park research campus in Ipswich to the BT Tower in London. The trial used what BT called the 'flexible grid' infrastructure that allowed the fiber connection to bundle seven 200 Gbps channels into one channel with speeds up to 1.4 Tbps.

    Ditto that one John, it'll never happen though where I live, in fact the exchange we connect too is wholly owned by BT and the usual copper wires, nobody else gets a look in.

    Our exchange was supposedly upgraded, wonderful news you would think? Our speed has gone from 5 to 6 - it was an upgrade to allow us 'up to 24' 'nuff said!

    BT needs a swift kick up its backside.

    Wow you've gone to 6, on a good day I'll get about 3 but if things are busy it will be under 3.
