Re: Long line (10.32km)


[re: WWWombat] [link to this post]
 
Had a look at that, and the houses on that postcode all start to move closer to my parents house, so there was only be 1 more house after that one on that part of the line and the rest would be on the same part as my parents.

as for the house 300m past my parents house, I was with them last night and got some stats of their line they only get 160kb, I know its poor, but its still better than dialup.

Noise Margin (down/up) 6.3dB / 6.0dB
line Attenuation (down/Up) 63.5dB / 31.5dB

Didn't get anything else though

I'd say thats a Netgear router misreporting the line attenuation. I'm getting about 0.5mb down with an att of 72db. Did you try ringing North West Electronics?

Most routers tail off the reporting of attenuation at 63 or 63.5 dB, so these values can represent any attn. above. This is for display purposes only; they still calculate using the true attn.

I haven't rang them yet as i'm waiting to see if I can get it sorted through the phone line as its only working out at £7.50 a month for them.

As for the modem it was a BT home hub 2

My Mum gets 2Mbps on her 10.62KM line. loss at 300khz is 70db ... so it is possible to get a connection on a ~10KM line.

Modem used is a Speedtouch 585 and I have actually set it back to default SNRM (used to use 3dB SNRM to get the best speed).

Do any of you get 3G mobile signal?

I've looked at coverage maps for o2, vodafone, orange and 3.
They all showed that 3G Might be possible but it would be a stretch apart from orange, t mobile & EE.

So o2 / vodafone / 3 might be worth a shot at trying.

I wondered if you had tried out different networks to see if any gave 3G?
In my old area it shows no coverage but I somehow get 3 bars of 3G on vodafone.

I can easily pull 1-3 Mbps on 3g with poor signal.

The best way to tell would be to test out all sim cards for all networks in an unlocked phone. See if any phone network gives some 3G signal. If it does this might be worth looking into. You can get sims delivered for free for each network to test with. You don't need to topup you just need to see if it gets 3G or not.

You can get routers that turn 3G signal into WiFi & you can place them in optimal places e.g. in a window facing towards the mast.

In reply to a post by 5km:

But only if the attenuation is favourably low. In general the attenuation is at least 10 dB per km. Distance in itself isn't an issue. Less than 1M at 7km is another data point.

BT have BET to combine two lines to make 1 or 2M available at long distances.

Any ADSL capable lines can be coupled together to increase speed with a variety of methods.
