It got changed today as a second line pair was damaged and the ADSL dropped out when it was windy, the previous drop it turns out was aluminium and the new drop is a 4 pair solid copper wire. (apparently BT don't do 2 pair drops anymore, only single pair and if somebody needs more they use a 4 pair...at least according to my engineer).
Anyways, on the new drop with my FTTC the attenuation has come down yet the SNR has worsened and the Pwr value has changed on the upstream.
This doesn't make much sense to me, a new drop which is solid copper and alumium anda shorter run (since the engineer didnt put a loop on at the house like the old wire was) has worse line stats?
Would that be due to an extra joint that is now in there to connect the old drop wire on the house to the new drop wire? Or is it bad termination?
I'm still getting max speed on the FTTC so it isn't too much to worry about at the moment, it's just curious as to why the stats would have dropped somewhat when I expected the opposite.
Currently Plusnet "80/20" FTTC
