I was sorry to leave PN, but the ongoing issues with BTW's vlan management, and the lack of workable VDSL2 here means that LLU is the only sensible option at this location. I had hoped that the switch from Max to 21CN at this rural exchange would have fixed the issues, but sadly not. So it's back to LLU I go...
My line has always been a bit of an outlier (in a good way): It's dead-on 3km of copper, a fair chunk of which is overhead, but d/s attenuation is only 35 dB. I can get a solid 15 or 16 Mb/s at a 2 dB target.
Throughput on TTR has so far been at sync speed, allowing for overheads, barring the occasional blip. I'm not seeing peak-time slowdowns.Packet loss is minimal. Latency is nominal and stable.
DLM seems to be working intelligently, reducing the d/s target to 3 dB already (starting at 6) and not overdoing it with the interleaving depth/delay/INP. It wasn't phased by an unexpected router reboot yesterday. It's been resyncing every day at 3:30 am.
So far, so good. I'll try to remember to update this once DLM has finished.
