Fibre 2000m from Exchange - 80/20 or 40/10


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

We've just gone live with Fibre in my village. Unfortunately I'm 2096m from the exchange and therefore only expecting speeds of around 10-15Mbps, even though my line can support 36ish Mbps. First off, is this assumption correct?

Secondly, would 80/20 increase my possible download speeds in this situation, or would I just be better off going with the cheaper 40/10

Any help would be great! Many thanks.

Exchange distance is irrelevant. Distance to the street cabinet is key.

40/10 is your max according to that estimate.

Use the Ginp Formula to determine if your vdsl2 connection is with or without G.INP.
Divide your IP Profile by your Sync Speed and the answer is 0.9669 (with) or 0.9679 (without)

Why are you only expecting 10-15mbps if your line can support 36?

What results do you get for telephone number/address from this checker http://www.dslchecker.bt.com ?

No way would you get 36Mbps at 2km from the cabinet. Agreed, we need to see the results from the checker.

Thanks for the responses all, appreciate it.

I've run the line checker:

Downstream Line Rate Upstream Line Rate
High Low High Low

VDSL RANGE A (Clean) 47.6 ; 35 | 10 ; 6.9
VDSL RANGE B (Impacted) 35 ; 18 | 8.4 ; 4.4

Is 18Mbps referring to the lowest I could expect before the distance from the cabinet takes effect? Or is that suggesting the overall lowest I should expect, regardless of distance, is 18Mbps? I would imagine the former.

I would expect about 30 mbps by those results but you could be lucky and get the 40+ estimate.

You aren't.

The line above the estimate table gives you a cabinet number. If you post that number and the exchange, there are people here that will find it on google maps and give us the link.
