Annex M


Annex M is a new type of ADSL which enhances the upload speed to 2.5Mbps and 24Mbps download under ideal conditions. Users need a special router often denoted with an 'M' in the model number. As with all ADSL products the speed is dependant on the distance from the exchange and the quality of the line.

BT ADSL 2+


BT ADSL 2+ is a new technology delivered over the famed '21st Century Network' (21CN) with download speeds of up to 24Mbps for customers living close to the exchange. Almost three quarters of customers are able to obtain 16Mbps. Upload speeds depend of whether customers choose the 'ADSL2+ Business' offering or the 'ADSL2+ Home' product. ADSL2+ is also available from our LLU providers (see below).

BT ADSL Max


This variation of ADSL appeared after the introduction of Classic ADSL. Download speeds vary, but can be up to 8Mbps if your site is near to the exchange. Customers can choose 'Home ADSL Max' with upload speeds limited to 442 kbps 'Business ADSL Max' where the upload speed is as high as 832 kbps. Like the maximum download speed, the upload speed is dependant on distance from the exchange and the quality of the line. These products are delivered over BT's ATM network (IP Stream). ADSL Max can also be purchased from our LLU providers (see below).

BT Classic ADSL


This is the type of ADSL that has been around for many years. All the accounts have an upload speed of 256 kbps and the download can be one of 512 kbps, 1 Mbps or 2 Mbps. There is no speed difference between the Business and the Home accounts, there is just a committed rate difference in the BT network and the other differences are added by the provider. Gconnect give priority to Business ADSL within our network. These products are delivered over BT's ATM network (IP Stream).

LLU ADSL


BT are not the only provider of broadband services to ISP's. LLU (Local Loop Unbundled) providers take ownership of the line, sometimes data services only, and sometimes phone and data services. Using their own back haul and core networks they can deliver the ADSL products to Gconnect and allow us to terminate them into our own network. the upshot of this is that we can provide ADSL2+ and ADSL Max products at a more competitive rate and in the case of ADSL2+, to locations that BT's 21CN is not deployed to currently. Gconnect currenty offer O2 for LLU services.

Enhanced Care


Business ADSL users that require high levels of uptime should consider using BT's Enhanced Care service. Enhanced Care gives the customer a guaranteed initial response time (4 hours) with BT committing to clearing the fault within 20 hours of it being reported. Out of hours engineering visits may be arranged during this period. It also allows faults to be reported during evenings and weekends. In order to use Enhanced Care, customers should also sign up to BT's Total Care to get a similar response to PSTN faults.
