fttc here at last


[link to this post]
 
I've finally got fttc after a two and half year wait.
I was on asdl2+ 20 down and 2 up.
I was predicted to get 54.3 down.
Does this look right for 700mtrs from the cabinet using a Billion 8800NL router ?

Downstream Upstream
Line Coding (Trellis) On On
SNR Margin (dB) 6.7 6.1
Attenuation (dB) 24.9 0.0
Output Power (dBm) 12.9 6.9
Attainable Rate (Kbps) 26171 5959
Rate (Kbps) 25162 5900

Cheers.

Mike.

Looks low. Are you connected to the master socket or an extension? Can you connect to the test socket?

Makes no difference in test socket and no extensions.

Then you need an engineer visit. With that attenuation you should be getting double that speed.

the engineer who fitted it told me if the speed hasnt doubled in a couple of days you need a broadband boost engineer.
I cannot get an enigeer visit now without a £165 +vat fee as the line speed is with in their acceptable range 47.6 to 18.8, when I ordered it, it was 54.3 down.

Is that an A range or B range? Did your product come with an engineer install? A prediction of 19-48 down is quite a wide spread.

An old line of mine of 650m (so long ago that the modem firmware had a bug reporting attenuation, so I can't compare) currently has an A range prediction of 45-60 down, 10-16 up. The B range is 22-44 down, 6-12 up.

It was also so long ago that you could only get 40/10 packages, but it could achieve those speeds, and reported achievable of 60/16.

A speed of 25 is very much at the boundary of being considered "superfast", and would normally be expected to be 1.2km away from the cabinet, using standard 0.5mm copper.

they use the full details

FTTC Range A (Clean) down 47.6 - 35 up 8.5 - 6.3
FTTC Range B (Impacted) down 34.5 - 18.8 up 7.8 - 3.9

And say anywhere in between 18.8 and 47.6, using both I know but they will not budge.

If you're in the test socket and below 35 meg you need an engineer visit and the ISP cannot refuse.

a daft question ?
how do they know whether your line is clean or impacted ? and what does it start on an engineer install, clean or impacted ?

Cheers.

Clean is based on your line length and conditions to the master socket I believe.

No idea how they work out the impacted...
