IPTV Booster


[link to this post]
 
What do you all make of this?

I cant find much information on this or ADSL Loop extenders but I was wondering would they improve the speeds for people around the 30db attenuation mark?

30dB attenuation is a short line that should manage 8 Meg or more already

Potentially yes and Openreach is looking at boosters to improve speeds to ensure the 2 Mbps USC can be met.

For people with a 30dB attenuation line who want to boost speeds the immediate solution would be to purchase a bonded solution if FTTC and other solutions do not appear likely within the next 12 months.

As a solution to boosting line speeds for large areas boosters are an inefficient way of doing it, as a second pair is needed to power the booster, plus the cost of the device. Any deployed in the UK would also have to satisfy the ANFP.
