Sync and new 2V modems


[link to this post]
 
Just going to throw this out there for discussion.

I lent a friend of mine my spare BT 2V modem to see if it increased his sync speed.

He's been on FTTC since last year, about 400 to 500m from the cab with an IP profile of about 33000 or so.

Everything seemed the same after connecting up the new modem but suddenly after almost 2 weeks he ran the BT speedtest, now his IP profile is 38717 / 10000!

I'm not drawing any conclusions but the facts are interesting.

What is the "new 2V" modem? Is that the new version of the Huawei, with the "2B" sticker (and that has less overheating problem) that has been mentioned on here?

Or is this some other beast?

I've not seen a 2B or any pics of one. The 2V is meant to fix the overheating and comes with newer firmware.

Just checked mine and it's a 2B.

The engineer did say it was "the newer model as older one's suffered from overheating"

Not if your pic is accurate - yours says "Firmware Version: V100R001C01B028SP10" which is exactly what I have on the "original" HG612 that I've had from April.

Edit: Of course that assumes that the label on the back has some bearing with what's actually on the thing smile

There's an SP08 firmware out there on older models.

Ah, OK.

The updated firmware can obviously be had without having a "2B/V" modem - I wonder whether that helped the overheating issue as I've never had problems with mine.
