I have a 40/10 VDSL2 line (Nowtv) wich I have connected via a HG612 modem, to a Ubiquity Edgerouter-x. configured to run Cake for QOS.
Performance is good, my internet is stable with reasonable speeds and grade A/A+ for buffer bloat (depending on load). All tests are run via wired connection.
Monitoring my latency graphs, I see the following for a quiet day: Normal
And this id steaming 4K: Heavy Streaming
The graphs are pretty good, with low latency, but the blue areas does expand under the heavy downloads.
My Modem starts are :

SNR was 8.7 / 5.9 in August, I think the increase might be due to the seasnoal change?
My sppeds are limited by my QOS and set at (64/65)*Connection speed for Upload and 85% of (64/65)*Connection speed for download.
I am connected with an ECI modem to connected to a huawei cab approximate 1,877m from the exchange.
I guess I am looking to understand the performace of my grapshs, and wheather the latency changes are due to a limitation of my hard ware, the length of my line or local congestion ?
I understand the at congestion and distance can affect the graphs and am happy to acept that as an answer, I just want ot make sure it is not anything under my controll and that what I am seeing is normal.
