Re: ADSL2+ instead of VDSL

VDSL from the cabinet, which is 3KM away, only gives 0.1M.
Do you have router stats for this?

Re: ADSL2+ instead of VDSL

In reply to a post by yarwell:
yep, it's wrong.

So VDSL2, over a 6km line (back to a cabinet) should be able to connect at more than 4Mbps?

Is there a cut-off point (beyond which ADSL2+ gains a speed advantage) or does OR's implementation of FTTC give ADSL "like" speeds [using VDSL2] over really long lines?
The main reason for doubt [that VDSL2 always equals or betters ADSL performance] is there are plenty of posts from people who've switched, to FTTC, from ADSL (or ADSL2+) only to find their connection speed is a fraction of their old ADSL/ADSL2+ speeds.

It would be good to collect some line stats from these plenty of people.

I said "plenty of posts". I didn't say anything about it being plenty of people wink

The cross talk from ADSL2+ from the cabinet would cause chaos for other ADSL2+ lines. VDSL2 avoids most of this by using different frequencies

Alas if you are one of the 1% with a very very long cabinet to home line then VDSL2 will be less than ideal

Thanks, looks like it.

It was strange that they did the cabinet where they did, there are only about 30 houses within 1.5km of the cabinet and if half of those go for fibre it means they did all that work for 15 connections.

We have a small cabinet in our village that supports some 30 odd properties, this wasn't upgraded to FTTC.

Our cabinet was over a year late being installed. During that time my adsl service did appear to improve. So it may be that you can eek a bit more speed out of the adsl once people start moving over to FTTC services in your area.

I wonder if openreach will offer you a fibre to the premises on demand install next year? Even if it costs ~£1000 if you weren't planning on moving would probably be worth it.

Not likely, as the fibre would have to be laid from the FTTC cabinet to the premises. A lot more than £1000 over that distance.
