Line stats, any good?


[link to this post]
 
Came back home this morning to see the nice shiny silver lock on the front of the cab, so I guessed my fibre had been provisioned this morning. These are the stats from the sr102, I'll leave playing around with hg612 until my "training period" is over with

Connection Speed 39998 kbps 9999 kbps
Line Attenuation 13.0 dB 0.0 dB
Noise Margin 32.3 dB 31.31 dB

Not familiar enough with fibre yet to know if these are any good lol

Sky broadband MAX

The force may be with them, but it won't prevent their assimilation

If you are on a 40/10 profile (which is what you have been provisioned at) they are perfect. If you are on 80/20 you might have been provisioned at the wrong speed. FTTC takes 2 days to train and usually goes down (sometimes up) . but DLM on the line is constant and changes are usually instant.

So you need to tell us what product you have ordered before we can tell you more!

Sorry, yes I'm on sky's 40/10 product
I did consider the pro version but after being stuck on slow speeds for so long I thought 40 would be enough improvement for now lol

In which case yes you are synced at the full speed for 40/10 service

Thanks, I'd realise did synced at max speed but I haven't got a clue if the noise and attenuation figures are any good. I knew what to expect from ADSL but FTTC is a completely different beast

What is this silver lock that you speak of? Can't say I have noticed anything other than the standard circular locks on cabinets. Is is like a padlock or something?

I am waiting for my cabinet to be activated and and some kind of sign would be good!

People have been saying that when the cab is finished a silver lock is put on them, I hadn't noticed any of these around here either, just the normal utility cabinet type locks.
my cab went AO about 10 days ago and it looks like I'm the first to get it provisioned and when I passed it this morning there was a new silver lock in the very centre of the cabinet, you can't miss them as they're very distinctive

No additional locks on any cabs round London - a lot of which have been live for a long time now.

If you can take a photo.
