Re: Full Fibre 900


[re: PaulKirby] [link to this post]
 
Pleased with my install today. Part of the rural fibre program announced in Dec 2019. Work started in my area in Feb 2020. Continued through covid. Came up for order late may. Order placed, fibre pulled externally the next day and 3-4 week wait for install.

Engineer turned up without the external housing for splicing from what I recall. After a small delay all up and working.

Initially upload was capped at 50Mbps. A manual disconnect and reconnect solved that.

Wire
920Mbps / 108Mbps

Wireless
511Mbps / 109Mbps

Surprised by the wireless result. This is using my TP-Link AP's I had hardwired earlier in the year. I have 4 on separate channels. However that speed roughly halves with multiple transmissions.

Ping times to 1.1.1.1 have reduced by 2ms.

What spec are your access points, WiFi 5 (AC) or 6 (AX) and what channel bandwidth at 5 GHz?

Very impressive the iPhone 11 is capable of showing 511 Mbps !

Thanks guys, delighted with the speed and consistency of the speeds. I honestly didn't expect to maintain peak speeds like I'm doing so far.

Wifi wise, I have 3x TP-Link EAP 245's and 1x EAP 225-Outdoor - managed via the Omada cloud controller

The indoor AP's are hardwired into the ceiling of each floor and centrally located in the hall/landing areas, no obstructions. They use WIFI 5 (AC) with good channel separation and transmit power as to not interfere.

Floor 1 - 36
Floor 2 - 100
Floor 3 - 52
Outdoor - 52 - which is furthest from floor 3

Airtime fairness is enabled but no QOS - I do run 2.4GHz on Floor 2 and Outdoor at 1 and 11 but haven't tested that speed yet. Virtually everything connects at 5Ghz

I have 16 wireless devices connected at the moment and 80% of them have a link speed of >=866.0Mbps

As I knew FTTP was due this year, I wanted a good distribution, hence 3 indoor and reduce multiple transmissions so placement was important.

Really good detail, thanks. My iPhone XS is only AC capable and it easily handles my 200 Mbps WAN speed (Virgin cable) but I was unsure how much the 11’s support for AX would improve things.

If you ever get an AX access point, would be an interesting test!

You’re welcome.

I did consider AX points but they are so expensive and I wouldn’t get use out of it. I hadn’t even realised the iPhone 11 was ax compatible.

All the stuff I have is all AC. I’m unlikely to change my iMac or MBP for another 2 years until Apple silicon is mainstream. So I think AX APs are at least 2 if not 4 years away for me. Easy swap however, on the ceilings with cat6 wiring.

Funny to get this speed on my lawn Via the outdoor AP

>300Mbps

P.s. incase you were interested in a laptop speed test over wifi - MBP, old, from 2013
https://www.speedtest.net/result/9687705635.png

But as I say, this is more like 350-450Mbps with multiple other devices transmitting.

Getting FTTP installed this Friday myself, I am mildy excited and these speedtests are making me more impatient laugh

Does anyone know if the Fibre 900 is over provisioned so if you have a card above 1G you can actually achieve 1000Mbps?

The ONT's ethernet port is only 1Gbps, so you won't be able to exceed that.

Ah... yeah, never thought of that. Don't the new Nokia ONT's have 10G ports?

Nope. Definitely 1G Ethernet port.

It's provisioned at 1000/115 anyway.
