I have no idea what your line length is Max .... it would need accurate measurement.

As someone else suggests .... you’ll never know unless you order .... but it isn’t worth fretting over.

In reply to a post by Zarjaz:
It was, but knocked off 30m as the copper pair doesn’t have to travel to the DSLAM cab now .
Makes sense, hope the family enjoy the extra speed whenever its needed smile

Next door has kindly let me run the line check as I find it hard to believe it. It's was recorded closer to 215Mbps down and 37Mbps up. Their G.fast 330/50 with Zen Internet.

I think it time to drag myself to order G.fast 160/30 and see what happen? If it less, tough luck, if it more, then upgraded to 330/50 if I am lucky!

That must be one of te latest BT SMartHubs given the attenuation.

I am around 450m with mid 70s (one neighbour causes 6-8 Mbps drop) and an attenuation of 30.2 dB!

I staying and stick with FTTC. If G.fast estimate are 330/50 in Range A and B with high and low then I will upgraded to G.fast. But on my estimate below seem bit risky to upgrade. Anyway happy to stay with full 80/20 FTTC until full fibre come along one day.

I have to forget about G.fast for now.

G.fast Range A (Clean) 224.1 168.8 32.8 14.1 146.4 Green Green --
G.fast Range B (Impacted) 180.3 124.7 22.2 10.7 112.9 Green Green --

I got the feeling it won't be 224/32 (probably 131/17 on my line)

I don't understand the logic of that.
Either you need faster speeds or you don't.

If 80/20 isn't enough then surely ordering 160/30 would be a considerable improvement.
Double the downstream and 50% increase in upstream.

Don't buy a package for bragging rights. Buy what you need.
The fact 80/20 is fast enough for you is a good enough reason not to order a 2nd line at a faster speed at considerable extra cost.

Also, you don't have to comment on your G.Fast estimates on every single G.Fast thread created by someone else.
You could allow the thread to focus on the OP once in a while. smile

What about UHD 4K streaming online for two TV's at the same time, might need faster than 80/20?
