Opinion on these FTTC stats please


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

May I please have an opinion on these FTTC stats from an HG612 modem. The reason why I'm asking, when I first switched from 6Mbit ADSL2+ to FTTC I got a max download speed around 120Mbit, with SNR of some 26dB. I was almost certainly one of the first people to go FTTC in the area. I've paced out distance to the cabinet at 120 meters. I know the route as I've had 3 REIN issues over the past 5 years (dodgy sat RX power supply, dodgy Sky+ box & a very dodgy ADSL modem/router wall-wart PSU all causing lots of stress to their owners and to me trying to track it down)

I don't have any stability problems, line up for months at a time, but I'm toying with going 80/20 rather than 40/10 and as it currently stands it doesn't look like I'd get the 80...and being so close I'm curious why.

Thanks,

Kevin

PS: Modem got rebooted this morning after a firmware upgrade, the stats so far look very typical of the before upgrade stats.

Hello Kevin

That "max download speed around 120Mbit" I think is the maximum obtainable speed that you could get on your line at that time, not that you would get it.

But looking now its Max: Upstream rate = 26328 Kbps, Downstream rate = 76256 Kbps.
So upgrading should get you close to these new speeds, apart from your upstream will drop to around 19999 Kbps (20Mbps)
The reason your max obtainable speeds has decreased is more people on your cabinet getting fibre.

The current Upstream is only 9999 - capped. 26328 in the Max Attainable so moving to an 80/20 product would give 76xxx & 19999 Sync rates.

Wasn't that what I said?

I wasn't referring to his current sync speed.

No, how could his upstream drop to 19999 from 9999? It will rise to and be capped at 19999.

Who said anything about 9999Kbps?

I said Max: Upstream rate = 26328 Kbps, Downstream rate = 76256 Kbps so that upstream of 26328 Kbps will be reduced to 19999Kbps.

So the considered opinion so far is that a drop from max 120Mbit 26db SNR (and presumably very few FTTC neighbours) to 76Mbit 18dB SNR is down to crosstalk rather than any low level line fault?

The OP stated his Upstream is currently 9999

No you actually posted: upstream will drop to around 19999 Kbps (20Mbps)

Well the OP said that they was getting a speed of 120Mbps where I said that was the max obtainable speed for their line, and I was still referring to that max obtainable speed that they are still getting (not their sync speed) i.e.
But looking now its Max: Upstream rate = 26328 Kbps, Downstream rate = 76256 Kbps.
I was never referring to their current sync speed.
And the OP never said anything about the upstream, their sync upstream granted is in their posted stats, but they never spoke about that, it was more about their downstream.

If I was referring to they current sync speed I would of said it would of gone up.

Maybe I should of said if upgrading to the 80/20 option their upload speed would drop from 26328 Kbps (max obtainable speed) to 19999 Kbps (i.e. capped), I assumed people would of realised that I was still referring to the max obtainable speed that they can get from their connection to the fibre cabinet and not their current sync speed.
