Fibre rollout


[link to this post]
 
My exchange on the where and when site is now in a planned area for fibre but not in the roll out lists so probably some 18 months away.

If the exchange is enabled for fibre how does it work. I was thinking with staying with ADSL 2+ because from what I have seen its half the price of fibre and its fast enough for me as I mainly do email and browsing and the odd download of for example windows 10 iso. Its fast enough to be done quick enough for me.

If the exchange is made fibre to the cabinet can I stay on ADSL2+ at least until it is withdrawn?

Yes, it won't affect you unless you want to move to fibre.

I do miss the old good ADSL2+ (DLM is far better on ADSL2+ than FTTC. Can turn off interleaving, plus you can tweak SNR too)

But the DLM slams you to 88.2% of sync, where the FTTC one is 96.79% of sync.

And if the WBC one puts you on interleaving it doesn't take you off again!

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 56.6/14.1Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Those are not really anything to to do with DLM itself, it is purely due to the difference in overheads of the data encoding and encapsulation (ATM for ADSL services and PTM for VDSL, aka FTTC, services) - the DLM only manages the line sync speed, the IP profile is then set to a fraction under the theoretical maximum IP throughput taking the encoding and encapsulation into account.

That's not true! I've seen it change both ways; very occasionally admittedly.

I believe the WBC one only changes back to Fast Path via a BTW reset.
