FTTC Headline Speed


[link to this post]
 
I wish ISP's stop advertising FTTC 80/20. As no ones will get full speed 80/20 because after IP Profile capped by both BT & ISP's and the real speed of FTTC if u live closer to cabinet are no more than 77.44Mbps down and 19.02Mbps up. Throughput speed are around 74-76Mbps down and 17-19Mbps up.

So FTTC are really 76/19 not 80/20.

Report those adverts to the ASA then, as fails the 10% rule.

I get better than the speeds you quote on my 80/20 service. I'd suggest the issue is settings/mtu/router/isp and not "actual possible"

Although unless it's changed the BT modem out of the box has QoS enabled and seems unable to go above 16.5Mb/s. I unlocked mine and turned off QoS so I get 18.5Mb/s.

Yep QoS is enabled set by openreach (BT) modem by default. As QoS is pointless in my view.

This is from an ECI modem - straight out of the box! 18.65 Mbps upstream
