Yes, that is a spare pair that the engineer would most likely use for a "new" line.


Ok so the estimate for G.fast will be much the same then? But more likely FTTC line might reduced VDSL sync rate?


I would suggest waiting until the line gets installed and if the speed falls below the advertised speed, cancel the line. G.fast uses different spectrum so you shouldn't have issues on the VDSL service.

ISP: BT - FTTP 930Mb/110Mb
ISP: PlusNet - FTTC - 80Mb/20Mb

Birmingham Fibre First Program: FTTP - BT Full fibre 900 Halo 1 package - 930Mb down 110Mb up.

Is that below Downstream handback threshold only?

Will post back soon with new TBB BQM, TBB Speedtest, G.fast stats etc.

Please don't - we really don't need your endless spamming posts of your line stats.


Can you even unlock the Huawei G.fast modems to get the stats?

Edit: Ah it's a BT Hub, so the (limited) stats are built into the router.

I think so, BT Hub or openreach modem as BT ISP told me engineer will come to change master socket to G.fast socket and bring his openreach modem with him.

Whatever it says in the contract you signed.

If the contract guarantees 100M downstream and makes no claim on upstream, then you will be able to cancel it only if you get less than 100M downstream.

The link above me start to worry me now. Cos my G.fast estimate much similiar to it and line length 267m much similiar to those 303m. Engineer could say to me sorry your line is too far from DP 320m away.

Just stop fretting... it will be what it will be. Find something else to focus on.

You have nothing to lose only something to gain by ordering G.fast, you've lived without G.fast until now so try not to worry as you don't want to make yourself ill and be in hospital when they come to install it.

You've posted about G.fast for so long now so be excited, I would smile
