Re: I can finally get FTTP/FTTC, question?


[re: robertcrowther] [link to this post]
 
No offence taken, I was replying to your reply to Robert which was in response to something I'd posted, so related to what id installed. But yes the main topic had shifted to what to install today, which is why I said if I was starting fresh I would install cat6.

so 60 a month with a 125 reward card, including line rental.. so really only 45 a month, not bad I suppose


Worth checking the cashback sites too.

When I signed up to BT I got £110 cash back on top of the £150 reward card they were offering at the time.

is FTTP 1:1 or is there some sort of sharing between the neighbourhood?

It says 300mb, but the bt checker says 330, which one is it?

WBC FTTP is a GPON architecture so the resources are shared between properties. It's a bit like a tree with a trunk and branches coming off as the light is split.

The 300mbps advertised speed is due to advertisement regulations.

There is some trials of 1Gbps over GPON

From your home to the exchange its shared by 32 people (via the Splitter Node) and then you get the sharing when you get onto the network.

And where each fibre going into the Splitter node is 2.5Gbps down and I think 1.2Gbps up, so if all 32 homes on the same split fibre hammers their connection and has the 300Mbps connection it will drop down to 78.125Mbps down, the upload will stay at 30Mbps.

that sounds good, Is there anyway I can blag the engineer to give me more than 300mbps or is it not technically possible?

Nope. The Openreach product BT Consumer will order is 330/30 sync.

Anyway, smile. I wonder if you've really thought about this? I see:-

I've been used to 5mb/s a sec since 2004, so I will definitely be going for the 300mb product, definitely want to make most of it smile I deserve it
How many people are going to use this FTTP, and at what times of day?

100Mbps is huge, 300Mbps far more than most households could possibly use after they have downloaded three-years-worth of films. If they have space to store them.

Unless you have extraordinarily high requirements, you will not "make the most of it", as you simply won't be able to use anything like all of it smile.

I accept that if you and your partner and (say) five kids are going to be streaming and gaming 20 hours a day I could be mistaken, but coming from 5Mbps surely it would take a while to develop a complete lifestyle from what you have now to that?

tongue wink smile smile tongue

Oh - and!!!

The guaranteed speed at peak times is something under 80Mbps throughput.

I think I'm the only person on estate with FTTP, I live in a old community really

I have thought about it

PC games to download from stream, are around 40-60GB

Youtube HD 1080/144p, big file sizes

Streaming Sky Go / BT sport for football matches

Downloading films or watching NETFLIX at 4k

I think the real question is, how have I managed with 5meg all this time ? tongue

If it was just me here I might of gone with Infinity 2 or maybe Infinity 3.
