ECI Cabinets and G.INP


[link to this post]
 
Is there any news on whether ECI cabinets will ever get G.INP?

I'm unfortunately on an ECI cabinet and my speed has download decreased over the years from 58 download to (now) 36Mbps. I know with a line attenuation of around 20 I'm not going to get really fast download speed with the current FTTC set up. I'm pretty sure I'll never get vectoring or other improvements until FTTP is available at an affordable cost.

Even a small improvement in my FTTC line speed would be helpful!!

The update suggests the rollout magically jumped from 30,000 to 600,000 users.
From my source, the rollout resumes at the end of this month.

Still yet to come across anyone on the initial rollout pre Xmas.

Speed tests don't show a slight up turn for ECI cabinets in Feb 2018, but within usual variance so need a few more months

The 4 Mbps difference on median speed between ECI and Huawei continues, and given Huawei was the dominant type in BDUK deployments where line lengths were longer overall, its even more surprising.

I've had my existing pair switched between the 2 cabinet types.
My line on the ECI DSLAM could not hold on to fastpath.
With Interleaving on ECI my sync is 36Mb.

My pair was then swapped to the new Huawei DSLAM.
Initially with interleaving the downstream sync was almost identical.
With G.INP, and a 3dB noise margin I'm now synced at 50.5Mb.

So I'm not surprised that Huawei lines (even though longer in general) outperform ECI lines.

Not surprising really, many BDUK cabs with long lines have vectoring enabled.

Do we know if the rollout will still resume end of this of month or if ECI cabs will even get G.INP? Pretty much cannot go above 18mbps anymore as the line keeps doing occasional patterns of around 30-50 ES errors and 10 -30 SES errors then 10-30 UAS at the same time if above 18mbps. Hopefully G.INP will fix it as it is intermittent and i have an attainable of 29-30mbps which would be nice to have, if Openreach and ECI ever sort it out which I hope they do.

MYSEL Cabinet 6

TalkTalk 40/10 FTTC estimated 21-33mb - Currently getting 18Mbps/5Mbps on an ECI FTTC line.

Hmm

UAS (unavailable seconds) of that amount usually means a resync happened.

I'm not sure that G.INP can fix that.

This tweet is from an author of an ISP news website that reported late last year on the current G.INP rollout schedule status. Seems we're still in for a wait.

I'm honestly expecting another delay, I hope not but at the same time I'm not getting my hopes up or getting excited at the prospect that those on the vaunted ECI DSLAM's will finally see G.INP and 3/4/5 dB.

Same here.

I'm wondering what priority G.INP on ECI cabinets is being given in light of G.fast pods and FTTP technologies.
