Just got a VDSL2 service at an address that the checker for the company (Phone Coop) predicted would have a speed between 35-40 mbits. Max speed 70ish.
Service was activated just after Christmas and the modem reports a speed of 28 MbPS - poor, thatís also the fastest itís done since it was put in, normally itís about 24. Sustained download speeds are worse, around 21-23 MbPS.
The router reports line attenuation as 6 numbers. I donít really understand what all the different numbers mean. I noticed most people get one figure for upload, one for download? I have 3 for each. *shoulder shrug*
They are (line attenuation):
18.1, 49.3, 76.2 DB
4.2, 40.6, 58.2 DB
I found an attenuation to sync speed calculator for VDSL2, but due to my 3 figures for upload/download, I canít work out how/where to put all these numbers in, to calculate the sync speed based on these attenuation figures. Apparently they are called D1,D2, and D3, and are something to do with an 8C profile. I couldnít find a coherent answer on turning that into one number to do a sync speed calculation.
Screenshots of technical info from my router:
I plan on replacing the NTE5 box for a new one with a mk4 VDSL filter built in, and Iím hoping I can dredge some dregs of extra speed from a new twisted pair RJ45 to modem connector wire.
Unless a RJ11 twisted pair cable would be better? I know the VDSL port on the new Mk4 can take a RJ45. Iíve seen cables that are designed for this on amazon. Not sure where the biggest speed boost is to be had.
