Do different providers use different gear at exchane?


[link to this post]
 
In past with BT i got 17Mbps real speed
With NowTV it get 11.5Mbps real speed

my question is do different providers use different equipment at the exchange to account for this?

Or different actual connections?

Or some other reason?

This is a consistant difference, regardless of time/congesstion etc

EO line, 1.3km from exchange

Thanks

This is possibly answered in my response to your other post - you could have asked both questions in the same post.

It is possible that the router you are now using does not work so well with the equipment in the cabinet. If you post the cabinet and exchange here then some other clever people will be able to tell you what equipment is in the cab and which routers are likely to work best with it.

Its a EO line so likely hes on Sky LLU moved from BTwholesale, the speed though hes quoting are actual throughput rates no sync rates so it is more likely a capacity problem.

Surely thatís ADSL heís describing ?

So yes, different exchange kit, different back haul, different profiles.... AND a different router.

Oops - sorry, got so buried in VDSL that didn't properly consider the post. Even so, the difference could just be in the router and a different router could hold better speeds.

The exchange im on is Kingsland Green

Exchange code‎: ‎CLKLG Postcode‎: ‎E82LA

im using the latest Now Tv hub - same as Sky I believe. Dual Band, Gigabit ethernet, 2 ports.

EO line so no cabinet.

Yes Now TV is part of Sky. BT previously.

Contract ending soon - so wondering if worth going back to BT if exchange gear is different which seems like it is and worth trying.

Thanks

I'm not sure what equipment sky use in the exchanges and normally their capacity is very good.

BTwholesale use several different makes of MSAN often in the same exchange so it will be pot luck what make you end up on.

Worth a punt by sound of it.

I will also try a different hub - I have my previous BT hub4 so will swap that out

Thanks
