How's Dad taking all this?

Is he finding his Net experience much better?

Ironically he hasn't used it much as he's been at work, but he managed to watch some iplayer on TV without any buffering over wifi tongue I think he's just glad to be getting better value for money

P.S. Now seeing a few more upstream CRC, HEC and Error Seconds, assuming it's because upstream sync has never experienced it's full potential before

I'm also hoping that what happened to my upstream sync will also happen to my downstream sync in time smile

lol I'd be on LLU given the choice too tongue

It looks like the increase in my upload speeds has resulted in a lower ping too smile my ping to google used to be around 30ms, it's now gone down to 20ms (over ethernet) laugh


I don't think LLU is any better or worst than 21CN in the long term - certainly I would never take full LLU though!

20ms is pretty good on an interleaved line smile

Despite what the router reports, I believe you are now on Fast Path. Hence the faster pings. WBC usually give no more than 888K Up on Interleaved but well over 1 Meg Up on Fast Path.

Yes, I've heard that 1.2Mbps is the upper limit

You may be right my ping to BT's Gateway server is only 17-18ms

I'm starting to get lost and misreading things yet again in this thread.

Think I might be getting information overload wink

Haha, the long and the short of it is, I am still on interleaved, judging by other people's pings, if I was on fast path I would be seeing pings of 10-14ms
