Re: Is Three’s network struggling at the moment or is it jus


[re: andynormancx] [link to this post]
 
My speed varies but I never go below 40mb even if I speed test at 6pm to 9pm which I am guessing is peak volume. Normally I get 50mb, this morning is was 70mb.

My ping to 1.1.1.1 is taken every 10 secs and graphed by my router, in the last 24 hrs its been 40 to 60m/s. The voda mast ping is more erratic 30 to 60 m/s with a 210m/s spike for a couple of minutes this morning which could have been when I moved the antenna.

Just ordered one of these Poynting XPOL-2-5G V3 Directional Cross Polarised LTE MIMO Antenna.

Says its better than the version 2, didnt even know the v3 was out.

If it doesn't make much difference , its going back.

Key Highlights
2-3dB higher over all the bands compared to XPOL-2
New 3400MHz-3800MHz, 5G band with 11dBi gain
Broadband, including the latest 3.5GHz bands
X-Polarised 2x2 MIMO Antenna
Wall or pole mountable
Lightweight & Rugged
Weatherproof & waterproof (IP65)
High pattern consistency across bands for 4G/5G carrier aggregation

In reply to a post by kommando:
Mine is a rural mast and sparsely populated but the local exchange is Fibre with only 500 properties connected to exchange of which 300+ must be close to the exchange to get FTTC, ….
Distance from the exchange is completely irrelevant to the availability of FTTC. In fact from what you have said about your area, with a 500ish number of subscribers it is 99.999% certain the fibre feed comes from a much larger exchange quite a way away. smile

For FTTC it is distance from the phone cabinet (PCP), plus the underground cooper distance between the PCP and its associated fibre cabinet. The two are normally within 50 metres of each other with the copper link less than 80 metres.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests normally 35-45Mpbs down, 65Mbps off-peak, 9-24 up.

I'm beginning to think that Three hasn't got the infrastructure in place to even offer a solid viable 4g broadband platform to the masses, let alone the 5g that they seem so keen to roll out.

Whilst they may be able to provide a solid mobile phone connection people tend to use it in short bursts which isn't anywhere near as bandwidth heavy as home broadband users, I think this is the issue Three is having with its broadband service right now.

There is a fibre cabinet in the village next to the exchange, BT installed but paid for by local authority. FTTP is also available but at price !!!

Presumably the exchange was mainly exchange-only lines, which is the exception to the rule with FTTC where distance to the exchange is key (as there is no cabinet that the customers connect to and the BT solution is to install a cabinet next to the exchange and then tie the lines into that).

No FTTC as too far from cabinet at 4km line length, closer to the exchange postcodes get FTTC offered.

Ive found something funny about Netflix, when im signed into my account i get speed tests of 2-3mbps . I thought 3 were throttling me.

I logged out, and did Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, Up, Up. Select Sign out, Start Over, Deactivate, or Reset. , and you can do a speed test from that , i get 30+mbps

Data usage is set to high in my account as well.

So not sure whats going off!

Service has been diabolical yesterday and today for me. Oddly the signal is even stronger than normal, the throughput however is disgusting: 0.1mb. Some cells are giving no throughput at all, others are giving fractions a meg.

Three CS says issue effecting lots of people all over the country.
