BT OpenReach FTTC Modem


[link to this post]
 
I have the ECI version so without physically altering the box I can't get my stats. All I want is the line sync speed for up and down. As this is reported to the ISP router (in my case sky) is there away that I could detect the sync speed??

If you get your IP profile from the BT speed tester (diagnostic version), your downstream sync speed can be obtained by multiplying the IP profile by 1.033 and the upstream sync will be the same as the reported maximum. I suggest disconnecting and reconnecting your session (or rebooting your router) before doing this to ensure that the IP profile has been updated.

Cheers Kevin, wondered that myself too.

Down: 38.72 x 1.033 = 39.99776

Up: 10Mbps

As both of those figures are only to 4 significant digits, you should round the answer as well, which gives you 40.00 - sounds better!

I prefer to divide the IP Profile by 0.9679, which loses the rounding down introduced by the 1.033 figure, which I think you got by dividing 1 by 0.9679.

That gives the correct answer of 40.

Bear in mind that the highest IP Profile is actually 38717kbps on 40Mbps products.

But given that the displayed IP profile is now rounded anyway and you can't get at the exact figure it doesn't make a lot of a difference how you do it as long as you round the answer!

As for the 96.79% figure, I think the real number is somewhere between 96.79% and 96.8% but it all gets a bit silly over the odd kbps.

Not really, currently you have to solder on a serial port and access it that way...

There looking to develop a soft method for accessing stats
