As I'm connected to a BDUK (Huawei) cabinet I decided to get Zen's FRITZ!Box 3490 to replace my R7000+ECI combo. (The R7000 does not support multiple WAN IPs nor IPv6 if I need it. Which is a pity as its pretty good otherwise..)
I've steadily been seeing a decline in the sync speeds on Zen's portal and was curious to see if the FRITZ!Box and g.inp would improve this and as far as I can tell the ECI does not fully support g.inp and FRITZ!Box allowed me to consolidate everything into one box.
Since connecting the FRITZ!Box the sync is more or less equal to the ECI and speed tests are close, but slower by 1-2Mb/s.
These are the line stats the FRITZ!Box is reporting:
Huawei Broadcom Cab
Sync Stats & Errors
Receive Direction Send Direction
Max. DSLAM throughput kbit/s 80000 20000
Min. DSLAM throughput kbit/s 128 128
Attainable throughput kbit/s 73694 24048
Current throughput kbit/s 73579 19999
Seamless rate adaptation off off

Impulse Noise Protection (INP) 0 0
G.INP off off
Signal-to-noise ratio dB 6 8
Bitswap on off
Line attenuation dB 8 6
G.Vector off off
Carrier record A43 A43
1.) Would I be correct in assuming there is a possibility that G.INP will at some point activate now that the modem on my line supports it, or would this require a DLM Rest? Also is there anyway of telling if this would increase the sync speed or is it more a wait and see what happens if/when g.inp is activated?
2.) Lastly I've heard mention that G.vectoring is only active on some BDUK (Huawei) cabinets where its inclusion would bring speeds up to the 24Mb "Superfast" targets for enough residents. Obviously I'm syncing well above that but can't comment on other residents who are further from the cab. What I'm interested in, is hypothetically if G.Vector was active on my cabinet would DLM simply have had my line set to not use it as I was originally on an ECI modem? (I'm not sure if the ECI supported G.Vectoring)
