The intention is for them to have a Router within the apartment which will give them their wireless access. Remember, the modem and router can be 90 metres apart!

There will be nothing too stop them having a full hub in the apartment; however what has been seen so far along with gut feel on noise from shared risers with alarms, entry phones, video links and power immediate adjacent then running through ceiling voids with large numbers of LEDs and CFLs ... there will be a significant reduction in attainable speed.

Oh this is going to be fun when mass-market providers get involved.

Makes sense to deliver the best broadband speed you can to each apartment.

In event of a hung modem and given BTOR modems as supplied by them locked down with no UI, how will end users reboot them (assuming they have no access to secure comms cabinet/room)?

Easy, through the building management/facilities team.

How often do the OR modems actually hang? Very, very infrequently in my experience.

The owners of the apartments will not have a choice - BT only for the infrastructure and then free to choose whichever ISP they want. Similarly - they cannot have their own Sky TV dishes or terrestrial TV aerial - these are managed and served to each apartment. And Virgin Media is ruled out as they will want to run coax to each apartment and the building management say NO.

That was the point, VDSL modems are no longer supplied as standard.

However, they have agreed to provide them for this set of installations.

ECIs I bet wink.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Re: Update - Crosstalk


[re: Chrysalis] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by Chrysalis:
yeah not unexpected really, I had the same experience.

110mbit attainable when I first unlocked modem (within 2 weeks of service live)
Then within a week of unlocking it, it dropped to circa 90mbit in one go probably an install.
Then not long after the attainable was down to the low 70s.


Well I'm hoping that the connection don't get much worse, the crosstalk issue is more than likely accuring at the DP in the building or in the 50/100 pair back to the PCP...

I just hope that the new development next door (180+ apartments) which will exceed the wee 96/128 port hauwei's capability won't have too much more of an issue causing further crosstalk at NGA level.
