The only question now is do we splash out an extra £5 a month to go 80/20 ?


YES. Upstream at 28Mbps - fine. Downstream at 73Mbps - far enough above 40 to justify it. Also, remember that is a reasonably accurate predicted figure that is based around a 6dB margin so you will be around there to start. You may then find the margin drops to 5, 4, 3 dB at which point you will be getting a lot closer to 80.


Its very unlikely he'll see sub-6dB SNR due to being on an ECI cabinet but as you said should see around 70MBit for sure and if g.inp was enabled on it may get close to 80.

sub 6dB is possible on ECI cabinets unless the update that provided it has been removed or not rolled out to that cabinet.

In light of your comments, thought you might be interested to see the equivalent Draytek 130 stats from MY old (i.e. Not my mothers) now terminated FTTC connection that ran reliably at 80/20 for a number of years.

Again it was an ECI box.

I think we shall sit on the fence for a week or two to see how her line settles down and whether there are any potential speed improvements ie margin drops further (increased upload speed is particularly appealing)

It isn't.

It has only ever been available on Huawei cabinets. It requires G.INP.
ECI cabinets have not got beyond trials of G.INP and none of the trials have used XdB targets.

You'll see plenty ECI lines with current SNRM below 6dB, but the target is always 6dB.
