Latest TalkTalk modem/router connects at twice the speed!


[link to this post]
 
As per title, I've had the latest TT router for a few weeks now so it's had plenty of time to settle down, here are the figures I've managed to get from it.
Status
UP
Connection Time
4d 02h12m14s
Link Status
UP
Standard
VDSL2 (G_993_2_ANNEX_ B)
Line Encoding
DMT
Link Encapsulation
ATM (G_992_3_ANNEX_ K_ATM)

Line 1

Downstream
Upstream
Actual Rate [Kbps]
11310
1130
Maximum Rate [Kbps]
11228
1130
Noise Margin [dB]
7.00
6.30
Attenuation [dB]
32.50
0.00
Power [dBm]
9.90
10.40

My line has been subject to a lot of attention from OR over the years and when running OK has normally run at 5/0.7 , I had a bad line for a while(3/0.3?) and a visit from TT manager who checked out line and left the latest router and a note that somewhere outside was a bridge tap, then the latest visit from OR was the usual "nothing wrong with your set up", but the line was reprofiled. Of late several other houses down my road have gone FTTP so maybe removing cross talk, but prior to the reprofile this made no differance.
Now I'm getting faster than ever before, I 'm puzzled as to why.

Different router which will almost certainly have a different modem front end.

Better matched to line impedance, better demod, impoved firmware, all can contribute. It is not unknown for large differences to occur although yours is extreme. I did a change a few years back, took out te supplied hub, installed a 2-wire and suddenly a 50-60% increase. A couple of years later a new hub supplied and that increased it by around 10% - switching back to the original dropped it right down, thus dmonstrating that the new unit was much improved.

I have the latest TalkTalk modem/router and have found it faster than the HG630 and D-link they supplied before this one.

I'm not sure how many types of TalkTalk VDSL routers I've had, I know the last one was a HG633, this one is a Sagemcom Fast 5364.
