Speeds expected 1.5 Miles from a All-In One Cabinet


[link to this post]
 
Roadworks are planned in january to swap my existing cabinet with a All-In-One Cabinet, but I live 1.5 Miles away from it, and currently only get 2Mbps speeds, with a total line length of 3 miles. Any idea what sort of speed bump I will get?

It really is hard to say, It could be good quality line, Im just over a mile from my cabinet with about 1.5mile length and get 21mbps, if its any gauge on ADSL used to get around 6.5mbps. Are you getting 2mbps due to the length or due to your package being capped at that? smile

An All-in-One will not significantly change the ADSL speeds you are getting. It would be interesting to see what your line stats are to see if there is any room for improvement though.

For FTTC (VDSL) - at around 5km it really is at the extreme boundary where speeds of 1Mbps might just be available, if BT want to even risk trying to supply it, so do not bank on it.

Need the coffee before I start!

Even at 1.5 miles - 2.5km the prospects are not good and certainly variable. Two people know, served by the same cabinet and same cable for 80% of the route. One at 2.4km gets about 4Mbps, the other, at 2.45 cannot even anything! Even the 4Mbps sped varies and is often very error prone.

Yeap could be zero or could be 4 Mbps, only way to know for sure is to try.

Is that a 2wire 2700?

There should be a little more speed available on that given the 9dB SNR, unless the line sees frequent noise burst or the day-night variation is several dB.

Try a power off, reboot and resync tomorrow morning at around 7:00 or 8:00 AM. Power off, leave for a minute, disconnect line. Wait 5 minutes, reboot modem, wait 2 minutes then reconnect line.

Yeah, a 2 wire 2700 smile BTHub 4/5 only manages a sync of 1mb! Line used to have a SNR of 6dB and ran at 3200kbps, but kept dropping at night.

Thought I recognised the stats format ...

From quite a bit of experimenting and testing a few years back I found that re-sync about an hour after sunrise gave the best results that would also allow it to hold up permanently. Mine would actually go right down to 0dB SNR at times and sometimes lower.
