Mate,

you are obsessed with line stats and figures, every line will be different, only way to know the real speed is to have it enabled.


He's had it installed before!

He hasn't.

He's made a number of G.Fast orders but cancelled it every time, never once getting as far as the line going live to see how high it syncs.

If i recall correctly the last order he tried to place was refused by the ISP because of his previous time wasting.

True, but that's me, not sure if G.fast are worth it ot not in my view? Still on FTTC 80/20.

Next door neighbour told me they are very happy with their G.fast getting 227 down and 32 up and told me I should upgraded FTTC to G.fast as they reckon I should get the same speed as them! Maybe, maybe! His house speed could be much better than mine.

PN FTTC 80/20 since 2014

There's a name for people like you max. Not safe to use it on the forums.

If you're happy with FTTC stay with FTTC, you want more speed, bite the bullet and actually get G.Fast installed and see what you get.

You're in a fortunate position in that you've got the option to have it, and get good FTTC speeds. Some of us aren't as lucky as you, and when I often read your posts, feel you're rubbing salt in people with slow broadband wounds.

It's almost like you've dick measuring with line stats and sync speeds.

approx 150m to cab.
I remember you telling me your pair length was 181 metres (using a very accurate mole) are these stats based on that same pair length.

Edit: corrected my spelling as normal frown

Line attenuation:0.0 / 25.9


Are these the same as ADSL2+ line attenuation? because I believe it much the same as ADSL/ADSL2+ and G.fast using the same pcp cabinet length to the property socket except the Fibre Cabinet (FTTC)

No. ADSL2+ is from exchange to end user. G.fast is just pod to end user. The frequency will be much higher for g.fast .

It was, but knocked off 30m as the copper pair doesn’t have to travel to the DSLAM cab now .

Does this mean my line length 262.7m could be 232.7m ?
