Kevin provides a couple useful tools

One day I came home from work to discover a massive pole sitting just to the right of my front door. On it was a memo from BT saying that if we had problems with this new pole, to let them know and they would address our concerns within 90 days. For some reason their ability to plant a massive structure, put a poster on it and then make a token concilliatory gesture made me laugh. Shortly after I discovered that my phone line had exceeded 512kbps and could now handle 1MB. Amazing! The pole was good for something after all.

Kevin of Yesit.co.uk commented with some useful links for checking your exchange and potential line speed.

To see how fast your line should be see http://www.bt.com/broadband/bb_info.jsp?s_cid=FURL-broadband

Enter your phone number in the “See how fast you can go” box in the bottom right hand corner of the page.
