But don't forget that using cabling in a curve causes higher attenuation. This is because, given what we all know that electrons travel along the outside of a wire not down the centre, when they go round a bend some inevitably fly off at a tangent.

Perhaps we should be tightening up those catenary curves between phone poles, as well, to straighten the cable runs.

And what about the zig-zags on railway overhead wiring, to spread and reduce wear on the pick-ups? Short but tight turns at the end of every length.

The other problem with the downhill hypothesis is that whilst data may travel faster downhill it had to get to the height in the first place so would have been travelling slower uphill - overall it's going to even out. Ideally you need the Internet to be hosted in space so that downloading it has the benefit of gravity. Move data centres to the ISS and we can all benefit from gravity when downloading.

I did wonder about that Ian, but realised that the higher voltage supplied on the downsream covers that possibility, given that the power supplied to the line is controlled by the DSLAM and varies according to the situation.

Morning Bob.

What voltage range can the DSLAM produce?
