Does FTTC profiling usually start very low?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

This week I migrated to FTTC. The cabinet is 200 metres away and low-contention, the BTO engineer stated that I had a full 40 / 10 sync ( that being the product I selected ).

I understand that DLM can be quite aggressive but does it seem right that I'm starting with 10 / 1 throughput, per various spee dtesters including the BTW one?

That's just the same as my ADSL throughput. Very disappointing as the prospect of a 10 Mbps uplink is why I migrated.

I had thought that FTTC profiling started at the max and then worked its way down on errors? TBB monitoring chart shows a little bit of 'red blood' loss but still much better than ADSL.

Thanks!

No

It starts off at maximum speed and only intervenes if it feels the need.

If same speed as old service and you are on PlusNet suggests they need to update their mirror of the IP Profile

Thanks!

Not with Plusnet but I'll pass that info to my ISP.

On the previous LLU ADSL I could log-in and change my line profile, but can't do that with FTTC so I'm at their mercy.

Always worth checking to see what your current IP Profile is:
