Re: No more development of ADSL technology?


[re: TDD] [link to this post]
 
Interestingly, about 2 months ago my connection went up to almost 6Mbps and the SNR Margin dropped to 1-2dB smile

I thought at first it was a fluke, but it stayed at that until yesterday when it plummeted to 2.8Mpbs and the SNR Margin went to 16-18dB frown

Fingers crossed the latter is a fluke and I'll be back to 5+Mbps soon!

As you say, interesting and entertaining link. However, reading around on BDUK project sites (eg South Gloucestershire) I see they are describing alternative technologies for the more distant premises as satellite and Broadband Enabling Technology (BET). Do you think that's a likely solution across the country for > 6km non-FTTC premises to get the 2MB USC?

Bet dead end tech
Sat a good stop gap but limited takeup possible

All depends on goal and willingness to spend e.g satellite is available now if you need a connection anywhere

Are we likely to see extra satellite capacity to cope with an influx of satellite users. Also the cost is prohibitive to some.
The Welsh Government change of funding for broadband has not changed the attitude of some Wimax suppliers, such as Exwavia, still wanting the £1000 to connect in existing enclaves.
Whilst 96$ may have access to decent broadband. The other 4% wills always struggle.

Bonded ADSL to the Cabinet, even if a cabinet has to be built to support EO lines, and then VDSL from the Cabinet to the Home at least gets the VDSL connection in place so that when the means to get Fibre or something else to the Cabinet is viable the user can benefit too. Is this ideal no, but neither is BET.

The VDSL connection is made and the upstream separated in the FTTC cabinet. Not in the PCP. It needs a DSLAM and line/modem cards.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 58.7/14.6Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Aside from the simple fact of how many copper pairs would need to be bonded to get a decent VDSL2 type speed

Judging from the Essex Phase2 documentation
http://www.essexinsight.org.uk/Resource.aspx?Resourc...
compared to http://www.superfastessex.org/maps.aspx
it looks as if a lot of areas that were marked as Alternative Technologies are now back to "Basic White" - ie there are now no plans to deploy those technologies after all.
They'll just be left to take their chances with Phase2 funding instead.

The Phase2 maps also show just how much projected commercial coverage from the Initial Modelling Map has been abandoned, as well.

Precisely why the EU was slow with State Aid approval, i.e. market led roll-outs were not complete so you could not be 100% sure where they would go.

Now that roll-out is pretty much complete should be easier to figure out the various areas.

The over lapping of all the commercial and gap funded schemes is part of the response to the pressure from campaigners to be seen to be doing something.
