FTTC Availability Checker


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys/gals,

Quick question about the BT availability checker, has everyone elses figures dropped from what they were before? as mine were


Clean (high) 59.3 (low) 43.7 (high) 16.2 (low) 10
Impacted (high) 49.7 (low) 26.7 (high) 16.2 (low) 7.4

but it now shows up as

Clean (high) 41 (low) 32.3 (high) 8.3 (low) 6.3
Impacted (high) 35.2 (low) 19.3 (high) 8.3 (low) 5

I thought it maybe due to cross talk as I the first one connected on my cabinet (first synced at 53meg down 15up but 2months later I'm down to 33meg down and 10up) BUT the reason I ask is because a friend on mine is waiting for his exchange to become enabled (keeps getting pushed back because of blocked ducts) and his dropped between 10-15 meg and so asked me to look at mine and I was mine had done the above.
So wondered if anyone knew or had any ideas why it's suddenly dropped?, like I said his exchange isn't even live yet

Possibly the estimates were wrong previously. Remember they have only just started to give out the ranges and they may be slowly building in more feedback from live connections, and also lowering expectations now as self-installs start to take effect.

The variations due to crosstalk effects on VDSL2 are expected to be a LOT more than anyone say on ADSL2+

Vectoring should solve this. But, no idea of when is BT start to roll out VDSL Vectoring?

What about if Openreach roll out vectoring? It's all a question of cost...

There are other technologies like G.fast that are being looked at/tested. I think it requires even more advanced vectoring due to the higher frequencies used to transmit the data.

I think mine are higher than they've ever been, I certainly don't recall seeing 79.6 before:

FTTC Range A (Clean) 79.6 59.9 20 19.6
FTTC Range B (Impacted) 70.3 41.3 20 13.9

I'm about 450m from the cabinet and typically sync at between 65 and 70Mbps.

My estimate dropped the other day, I'll still have page watcher setup so every time something changes i get an email.

My clean range high value is now 42 and i'm only getting that at 450 meters.

Hmmm.

My predictions are *identical* to yours. In every category.

I am between 350 and 400 metres, and sync at 80/20 with an attainable of 82/25.

Do you mind if I ask which page watcher using?
