Vectoring


[link to this post]
 
It appears that vectoring has just been enabled on my FTTC broadband (Talk Talk) I am on the faster fibre (not 76meg) option.
Prior to being enabled I typically synced down at between 34 and 37meg with a noise margin of around 6dB.
Now my modem shows sync of exactly 35,000kb and a noise margin of around 12 so looks like they are managing the sync speed rather than giving me the up to 38meg I was on. I am no worse off than I was but it would have been nice to get the benefit of the vectoring to take me to the max speed I am paying for.
Anyone have any experience of this and know how it works?

May I ask how you know vectoring is enabled?

Are you in Wales or Cumbria by chance?

Ok, thanks.

It looks like your downstream rate is banded, that would need to be unbanded in order for the line to benefit from vectoring.

You may well be right but it's only been banded since vectoring was enabled, prior to that sync speed was always to a level where noise margin was around 6dB

Interesting. Do you have access to line stats?

Several hundred cabs were recently upgraded in Wales and a few in Cumbria to support vectoring

Interesting, I thought the vectoring roll-out was dead in the water thanks to G.fast.
