Re: Not the best advert for G.Fast


[re: PaulKirby] [link to this post]
 
The way I see it, they should be working on ways to increase the speeds of lines that are slow, not to increase speeds of lines close to the cabinet that may already have a good speed.
The two aren't mutually eclusive and see no reason why Openreach shouldn't do both. Remember that BT is a business and should be free to invest its resources where it thinks it will get the best return.

Thanks for the replies. Using Google maps I'm about 140 meters from the cabinet. No idea if the wires take the most direct route as I live in a tower block (1st floor) and they are underground.

I'd have guessed at least double - you're on the borderline of 80mbit.

Still, I'd have thought any line that could manage 80 with fttc would do better with gfast. Anyone got an up to date speed/distance chart?

g.fast uses higher tones which are weaker. It has much more tones available but those tones drop off quicker over distance,

for a 67 low estimate on 'clean' you dont need to be on top of the cabinet, a line around 300-400m should get that estimate for FTTC.

Given openreach I think set a limit of 350m for g.fast I am surprised the line has g.fast marked as available as I am guessing its a bit over 350m. Have openreach decided to push it to longer distances?

It might show it as available, but may not be able to order it because of the 350m limit (also below 100Mb limit).
