Re: Cabinet information please- exchange live in September.

I would not class it as similar. THe copper BT twisted pais has very poor bansdwidth and is very subcect to noise. Coaxial cable that is feeding only one property has more than enough bandwith to meet any possible needs at least for the next 10 years. Coaxial also has much better noise immunity

Twenty years ago, Ethernet came at 10Mbps in 2 flavours - one on twisted pair, and one on coax.

Nowadays we see ethernet at gigabit speeds on twisted pair only, and the coax variant has died a death.

While I agree with you that Coax does indeed have better noise immunity, there must be something else in the equation that means twisted pair has won *that* race.

The big cabs are 288 connections with multiple GigE backhaul links to the handover node

If the smaller cab it is 128 connections.

Ah right okay, anyway we are on o2 at the mo, paying about 20 quid a month for 3meg.

Is there any other ISP that does fttc, that has unlimited usage for about 20-30 per month?

I'm sure there is also a 256 connection version of the smaller ECI cabinet.

The two main reasons are:

1. Twisted pair ethernet cable is considerably cheaper than RG58 coax that is used with thin-wire ethernet.
2. Coax cable is only good up to about 350Mbps.

Hi there

Can someone advise me if LS10 3BS is showing up as when we will get upgraded. Currently with Sky and get about 5mb but sky have just recently put prices up so thinking of moving to orange as can get out of the contract.

Used an old netgear router with cracked firmware so could adjust the SNR level, managed to get about 6mb/s perfectly but overnight the connection slowed back to the sync speed that the Sagem always synced at.

Wondering when will get fibre in my area.

Can't help you with your cabinet, but the exchange has been put back to December now. I emailed OpenReach for a definitive answer on ours, which has gone from December 2012 to December 2013 now frown

Hope you get the answer you're looking for.
