Copper Distance from PCP


[link to this post]
 
Hey guys - i am trying to determine the distance from the cab to my house, i live in an estate where the houses circle themselves, if i take shorter route its 100 meters and the longer route its 300 meters,

Anyway to determine which way the copper is running ?

Not really, unless you ask an engineer

Why does it matter?

Possibly to estimate G.fast speeds

Any other clues such as is overhead from a pole; or is it underground and manhole covers may help.

Absolutely - correct, would be nice to know if G.FAST is on the horizon,
if it helps, the cable is underground

My router reads attenuation of 8.1

Easier to look at www.dslchecker.bt.com

The attenuation is a good guide as well. Looks like you have a short line. Is that VDSL attenuation?

Great to know this really - hopefully g.fast will be near the advertised speeds
