Re: FTTP 330/30

You could always be sneaky and buy a Homehub 5.

Looks like it could give you a surprising speed form other comments, ask on here for someone to hack it or get your own experts to, that would give you access to all the features . Or even ask the manufacturer to supply unlocked versions to you.

Likely to be the cheapest high speed device if you can get them unlocked.

There's a good chance the Homehub 4 would also be ok, and that IS available unlocked

For what it's worth the TL-WDR4300 is listed as doing 935Mb/s PPPoE.

Back on 15 Jan I posted my experience of using 330/30 where I mentioned I'd found the Asus RT-N66U couldn't handle the speeds but was monitoring developments in the firmware.

Since then I installed version 3.0.0.4.374.38_2-em of the Asuswrt-Merlin firmware which has enabled (re-enabled?) Hardware Acceleration and the router has now successfully been running at over 300Mbps, and the SamKnows white box monitoring shows it's consistent (compared to other routers I've tested).

I've now upgraded to the 374.39_0-em version of the Asuswrt-Merlin firmware and the speeds are still as high.

So after over 12 months of trying the Asus RT-N66U on and off it's now finally working to maximise the 330Mpbs speeds and I'm going to stick with it for the foreseeable future.

But my original comment was about the 330/30 experience, as was asked for in the opening post. And my experience over the past 20 months has been that not all gigabit routers can handle it, and that firmware updates possibly haven't been tested for the faster internet speeds because the developers and most of the wider community don't have these speeds.

I fitted a native FTTP today, 330/30 from BT retail. Hub 5 on the end of it, it's the first 330 one I have had a chance to play with, got 312Mbps on the Thinkbroadband tester hard wired using a Panasonic CFC1. It actually showed a full 30Mbps upstream too, very nice !

The interesting bit, for me, was that I usually use www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk as a cheap and dirty speed test, and for the 2nd time, a 330 line has only shown 15/16 meg on the download, but 30 upload. The test seems fine on an 80/20 FTTC ...... I wonder, could you try it with yours please and see if it does the same for you ?

We have 10Gig direct to our speed server and have run it at over 1Gig to a single machine (in data centre)

Plus control of network so if people moan we can see where issue was

Well it seems just fine and dandy ! smile
Was hoping the OP could try that (cough) other site and see if he saw the same issue ?
