Re: Who will offer 330Mbit packages?


[re: izools] [link to this post]
 
The max upload on FTTP is 30Mb/s - not exactly a massive improvement on the 20Mb/s available on FTTC.

Maybe BT will increase the upload later, we can hope. On a 330Mb/s download I wouldn't settle for anything less than 100Mb/s upload.

I only got 290M-300M testing my 1G ethernet link in loopback mode. So having a 330M line would not be fully saturated by existing networking hardware.

Until the Openreach product is used by someone other than BT Wholesale they're the best to look at and according to BT Wholesale the uplift they're charging ISPs over the 100/15 FTTP product is 13GBP/month, not including VAT.

Add the extra strain on interconnects and transit and you soon end up with a product significantly more expensive. The vast majority won't bother; the uptake for Virgin's 50Mb product when it was 52GBP/month, and frankly a 330/20 product will have to be shaped senseless to come in that cheap, was tiny.


I ask because I want as decent an upstream as possible.

Now 100/20 or even 110/30, that'd make for a very appealing product to me!


Openreach are quite intentionally keeping the FTTP products highly asymmetrical.

I've heard a couple of price points from BT Infinity for the 330/20 product which are relatively cheap but come with restrictions over and above the existing ones.

You have an issue somewhere. I can transfer files @ 110MB/s between two machines using onboard NICs and a cheap gigabit TP-Link switch.

will retest at the weekend. What I did was run a test program in receiver and transmit mode on the same PC, using the PC's IP address. Thus assuming I would get the fastest speed possible.

The PC is quite fast......

It may be a limitation of the hard drive in the PCs.

Most can't sustain that sort of throughput.
