Re: FTTP 330/30


[re: MartinS] [link to this post]
 
Now all the fuss has died down, I'll give my comments!

Snash, snash, snash!!!! wink

I'm going to have a "Terrible-two" type tantrum!! tongue

It is so unfair!!

My Exchange is NOT on any list/scheme to be upgraded to Fibre & there are these guys getting 330/30 - I believe that there are even some suppliers who are able to deliver 1G!!

Stamp, stamp, stamp (that is my feet having a good go)!

Am I green with envy? Too right I am!!

\now goes off to have a good sulk! laugh wink tongue

Regards,
John

Though if someone has FTTP the interference that can or may affect VDSL2 is not an issue at all.

Is that because you are stuck on a "Terrible Two" - fixed 2Mbps ADSL?

So 60 meg over wireless at the top of the house isn't good enough ???

I have to mirror these comments with the caveat that my connection is a (soon to be killed) Bonded BE connection of 7Mb/1.6Mb and a neighbours house I back onto less that 30m away have the option of 330/30 FTTP.

My main comment on the experience of using this is that you guys must be very frustrated if you have to use a <10Mb service after getting used to >100Mb!

On the cost front, I pay £64/month for my bonded connection plus line rental for two phone lines at £30/month. So by my count £50 + £16/month for 300Mb fibre is the bargain of the century!

P.S. My sig is the best case connection I'm getting back unless I part with over £100/month for a bonded connection plus 2x line rental. The gap between BB haves and have nots is mental!

Could you not do some deal with your neighbour?

All the OP would need is the FTTP terminated at the neighbouring house and some external Cat6 to deliver service. Up it to 8 pair Cat6 and power could be supplied in the spare cores so there will not even be a need for the neighbour to supply that.

Powerline is convenient, and I get a pretty reliable 100mb over mine (Homeplug AV based Technika PLAW10). You are right that GigE over Cat5/6 etc is far more preferable for speed, reliability, latency etc, but the challenge is getting wires around the house without them being noticed but not spending a fortune to have it done really properly.

My current tactic is to use Apple Airport Express devices in the rooms we want audio in, and also have them act as an wifi access point. The performance of that over Homeplug AV is good enough for me, and I'm pretty fussy!

Trying a new router now (a Draytek 2860n) and getting some interesting results:

Anyone seen this before? The 6 x test appears to be putting the router under some stress while the 1 x test is completely clean?
