Sorry I didn't notice this post at the time. I saw something that I thought was relevant here.
Oddly however, I also found this Nov 3 2017 ISPreview article. I wonder if we are both right? A reset gives interleaving as you say, but if a new (intial FTTC on that line) connection is made perhaps it starts on an open profile?
Yes, I have seen this quite a bit too where some new lines (on Huawei cabinets) were wide open (fastpath). I still see DLM resets on Huawei Cabinets put the line fastpath. The default is old style INP/Interleaving.
ECI cabinets have always been growth from provision or after a DLM reset.
It looks like that ISPReview article you linked has started.
That's the 1st case I've seen of an ECI line being interleaved at provision and
after a DLM reset.
Given that OpenReach's way of deploying interleaving takes roughly 10% off the sync I wonder how many lines this will make start below the MGAL.
Just like the OP on my linked post.
