New FTTC 80/20 speeds.


[link to this post]
 
Hi all

Just had a new FTTC (80/20) service installed on Monday 1st Aug, so still early days yet. On the isp website the estimate was 76Mbps Down and 20Mbps Up.

According to my router (TP-Link Archer VR900) I get the following stats:

Current rate(kbps): 19999 Upstream and 68423 Downstream

Max Rate(kbps): 27776 Upstream and 68766 Downstream

SNR Margin (dB): 14.9 Upstream/ 6.2 Downstream

Line Attenuation (dB): 0 Upstream/ 11.2 Downstream

It also shows packet errors as 139 Upstream and 71 Downstream


The Router is connected to a dangly filter and then it plugs into an old style LJU2 master socket. The connection from the router to pc is wired via a cat5e cable.

Would a new NTE5 master socket and filtered faceplate be worth the outlay ? I am pretty happy with the speeds, but if I can get up to the 76Mbps then even better.

cheers

Do you know if your cabinet is a Huawei, in which case you should get G.INP enabled?

It definitely is a master - with the yellow cylindrical capacitor?

Are there any extensions in the house - used or not? If there are, how many connections are there to the master faceplate? A connection is two or three wires - always T2 and T5, and often T3.

Please tell us the number on each of those and their colours.

Note! Best to check this well inside daylight hours unless you can do it without disconnecting. It's 7pm now and I would say that's a bit late. It can make a difference to the connection speed just like it could on ADSLx.

Those stats don't look like interleaving is on, so AIUI G.INP is not going to be activated on the line.

It's presumably on an open profile at the moment. G.INP should come on in a couple of weeks if it's a Huawei cabinet.

Most of us would vote for Jeremy Corbin if you gave us these speeds.

Not sure to be honest. I have found out the cabinet number I am connected to from the link below:

https://www.telecom-tariffs.co.uk/codelook.htm

Which says I am connected to Cabinet P18 (0161 320) which according to the map is on Hillside view.

Google maps only shows a single green cabinet in that location:

Not sure if that helps any wink

So best just to wait a couple of weeks and see if it improves ?
