Re: Would a new line improve my speed?

In reply to a post by cheesemp:
Andrew,

The range is 20 to 35 based on this.

BT are only quoting a minimum of 14mbps for switching but vodaphone are promising 20mbps on the new line so at least I know I'm getting no worse if I take the new line.

Phil

Here is my speedtest results: Here


Your dsl router is connected at 22Meg sync - what are your router full stats?

The "guarantee" from Vodaphone is just that if they don't get that speed they will let you out of the contract. The actual sync speed you get will likely be the same whether it is BT or Vodaphone - there isn't that much an ISP can do to influence your sync speed, what they can do is influence the amount of bandwidth through their network to avoid contention and I suspect BT may be better on that than Vodaphone are.

Vodafone may promise, but what you need to know is what will they do if the promise is not met...

Chances are speeds will be the same, but could be worse.

The EE smarthub I'm using is rebadged BT smarthub (With slightly different internal webpage). All it gives me is Downstream 20.00mbps and Upstream 6.06mbps. Not seen a way of getting more stats out of it. I was getting 22mbps about 3 or 4 months ago before the lock down.

Thanks Ian and Andrew. I was afraid that would be the case, but I guess this confirms it. When you're on 20mbps, an extra 5 seems tempting!

I think it might just be your line.

My last property had on the BT checker:
High = 30.2 / Low = 18.0. Actual sync speed ranged from: 19.8 - 20.2
Late 1970's line on busy ECI cabinet line length approx. 980m

My current property (just around the corner:
High = 34.4 / Low = 22.0. Actual sync is 39.0 - 39.4
Mid 1990's line on new Huawei cabinet line length approx. 1060m

On the Hub <Home>, <Advanced Settings., <Technical Log>, <Information> That should take you to a page where max rates, attenuation, noise margins and other details are shown.

This is from a BT Consumer Hub, so should not be too different for you.

Well spotted MHC. That interface is dire and I'm use to dealing with interfaces. Stats are: stats

Yes that could well be the case. 1970s estate. It is Huawei cabinet but has 500+ properties on it.

Huawei should try target SNR 3dB but can't known if your FTTC already got G.INP enabled?
