Re: Long line (10.32km)


[re: yarwell] [link to this post]
 
But if you can't get an ADSL connection over a single line you have nothing to bond!

If there isnt a second pair available this would also be an issue. If there is I would hope that BT have tried swapping them over to see if ADSL can get sync on the second pair.

Installing a new line could we a way out of this (as would satellite, wireless etc) but cost creeps in!

Mobile signals are out as it seems to be a not spot for them too. I used to work for a mobile phone retailer and have checked them all, and regularly do checks to see whether any 3g can be picked up on any of the networks.

I was looking at the BET comments there and that looks interesting, although is there any updated prices and all I can see is working out at just under £2000.


PS. engineer booked for next Wednesday, so fingers crossed

Re: Long line (10.32km)

the engineer was out today (well, 2 of them), first one done loads of tests, more than what had been done every other year, and couldn't pick up a signal. That's why she called the 2nd guy out saying that he's a lot more experience with the long lines. the only solution that he could come up with was where that our line was in the coil of lines a long the route to the house, that our neighbours is one that has no interference but ours must have. Surely this would then mean that there is a fault if the signal is being blocked??

Has anyone heard of this before?

Sounds like referring to crosstalk and this can be an issue as well as outside interference as at 10km the adsl signal is VERY low.

Is this a fault? No part and parcel of an rf signal sent down copper and thus performance decreases over distance

No worries. Thanks again for you're reply.....i'd say that an email to the ceo again would be pointless then.
