Re: which fttc router.


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
Having studied my own & other users' connections for a number of months now, I have seen that IP Profile (BRAS Rate) is 96.79% of Sync speed & that at "quiet times" speedtest.net usually returns a throughput speed of around 97% of IP Profile.

EDIT:
The above speeds are only relevant when using wired ethernet connections as wireless connections can be/are affected by many "other" factors.

Hi zadeks

The link you put on here is it a router for vdsl2. Because it looks really good and has a brilliant price. If it is for vdsl2 I'll buy it........smile


Cheers

Its just a standard wireless router (alebit high spec) so you still need the Openreach modem

From the spec it appears to be just a router, not a modem, so VDSL doesn't really enter into it, i.e. it would work but you'd need the Openreach modem as well.

The Openreach modem is a router anyway.

I've once got 97.9% of IP profile, and that was at peak time no less. Though on average, with IP throughput at basically 100% of profile, Speedtest.net results usually linger at about 96.5-97.5% as you say.

I've also had a single file download go at 9.4MB/sec, aka also 97% of IP profile.

Ok, as long as you realise you are comparing a combined router and modem with a router.

Only if you unlock it and obviously not wireless.
