Thanks for the info.

When i was in initial talks with them about joining, one of the guys said they only use BTW backhaul as most of the others are LLU?

Strange, seeing as not too long ago they started using Zen at exchanges where Zen link to their own PsOP and backhaul.

Hence the comment(s) earlier in the thread about being moved from that to BTW.

Yes, although admittedly, when enquiring i asked if i would be on CPW backhaul as Zen are not present in my exchange. and i was told no as they were LLU.

I could, of course, be understanding everything completely wrong.

Wouldn't be the first time.

No. I must have been confused by your previous post.

The Zen method isn't actually LLU however as they don't have their own MSANs in exchanges. AIUI they take a feed from the BTW ones there to their own backhaul rather than the BTW backhaul.

They’ve been mucking about with going to https.

This works for now:- http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome

More detail, and maybe a (better) link to the current version in this thread.

Came home today to find i had a resync onto fastpath, and speeds back up to around 69, from interleaved at 60.

Errors seem to be a reasonable amount more, (approx 15/hr vs 0.13/hr) and strangely, general browsing feels a little 'clunky'.

Almost makes you wonder if interleaving creates a more stable (snappier?) connection at a lower rate, with very few errors than fastpath.

I might have a look at adjusting my SNR up a bit to see if that smooths things out a bit with a slightly lower sync.
