Re: FTTPoD quotes, prices and general chat thread Part 5

Partly due to the conditions I was doing the test on I think. A better result, still not 330 on the TBB test although this same PC gives 350 at fast.com which I am not sure I believe. This PC is upstairs on a satellite Netgear Orbi (but they have ethernet backhaul between them).

Clearly wireless and even a low powered MacBook connected by a USB ethernet adapter don't fair as well. I've never really had a connection where the internal state of my network mattered because it was always better than the speed to the outside world.

Ah ok.

It just seems weird as one would think you would get the full 330 as this is what i assumed full fibre meant.

No losses, crosstalk etc.

Like with DSL, full fibre still has overheads so a 330 Mbps connection won't give you more than ~ 310 Mbps in actual throughput. On a 1 Gig FTTP line, you'll get around 900 Mbps in throughput. But of course the beauty of FTTP is that you get the speed you pay for, after overheads are taken into account (excluding contention).

Is that why Cerberus only advertise 300/30?

Yep. Similar to BT Retail advertising their Ultrafast Fibre 2 Plus (FTTP) service as 300/49, despite having a connection or 'sync' rate of 330/50.

I got a call from an Openreach surveyor today, he's coming on Saturday to do my survey and wanted me to be home. Any questions i should ask him apart from where the aggregation node is?

Make sure you're totally happy with the proposed cable routing, both external & internal. Don't agree to anything you're not comfortable with.

You'll most likely be given the the newer single port ONT but if you plan on having multiple FTTP services in the future then try to request a 4 lan port ONT - it could save you hassle in the future.

Oh and offer plenty of tea/coffee & snacks to the Openreach employee smile

We will soon have to stop calling it the newer single port ONT (aka the 1+1 ONT) once they start to ship the even newer single port ONT (aka 1+0 ONT). Hopefully someone will post details/pics of it once they start to get installed.

I believe it will be identical to the single port ONT that currently hides alongside the BBU in the housing....
