Is aluminium cable worse than copper on VDSL due to the corrosion problem at the joins. Or is the poor performance due to its attenuation properties being worse than copper at high frequencies?

I'm pretty sure mine is 0.5mm, the estate is only 5 years old, but I'm so close to the cab it don't makes much difference.

My parents have 170 meters Alu D-side and they have over 100mbit attainable rate (was as high as 140) they have had 0 crc errors in about a months uptime.

I am connected to LNBAR and can only hope that I am included in the trial. Apparently the way it works is that all people are or BTO gives the ISP a list.

I know to which cab I am connected, but not by uts number. Any way for me to find out?

Thanks

a) The number is painted on the PCP cabinet, so if you know where it physically is located, that'll tell you.

b) Use this checker with your phone number. The first line of the result should tell you the cabinet number.

the barnet cabinets in the trial appear to be one near 'Hadley Wood' station (26), and 2 in Arkley, (41,42) (one opposite the Arkley pub, and the other at the top of Quinta drive)
I did see something suggesting they were also testing about interference from radio stations, and the arkley ones are very close to the 'Saffron Green' transmitter.
