Zilo LLU


[link to this post]
 
I am on a TTB llu package with goscomb at the moment and am finding the 50GB limit a hindrance. I Use DG firmware to lower the noise margin from 9 to 6dB and get a speed of 4200Kbps
I have decided to go for one of the unlimited LLU packages from Xilo. My question is, Do I go for the C&W LLU or do I stick with the TTB package which is a fiver more. Is the C&W package likely to be the same speed and reliable?

I have been on C&W LLU for around two years now with Vivaciti and the connection has been reliable and stable with only one period of downtime, which was resolved quickly. I have no experience of TTB so cannot comment on that service.

I moved from a Xilo O2W package to TTB (still with Xilo) a few months ago. No complaints about upload speed and latency. My upload speed is a little on the low side (router only syncs at 0.7 meg, lower than stated 1 meg) but I haven't found that an issue

Well I have decided to go for the TTB pro package as apparently the C&W llu has its own form of DLM and I want to avoid line management.
The upload I have now with the TTB from Goscomb is 751 kbps so that will be no different

I have to say I'm more than happy with my connection and Xilo in particular. I have found them extremely responsive to the few tickets I have submitted, even on a Sunday evening which is amazing.

I wonder why TTB are so mean with their upload speed though?

A 1022Kbps sync with an upstream SNRM of 9dB should be possible with uno "Pro" TTB - I've consistently had that speed with "Pro" for the past 2 years...

Yes indeed and I don't know why mine doesn't, other than TTB (via Xilo) say my current sync of 730 Kbps is all there is. No biggie though

What I have noticed since FTTC was activated locally is that my ADSL2+ downstream sync has decreased a little - high frequency tones seem to have been clipped possibly to reduce crosstalk - no affect on the upstream sync though smile
