Just ordered Ghost Broadband, moving from Vodafone. I assume it is a BTw connection from AAISP and likely will just show as AAISP on the speed test/IP ranges?


What makes you think they are linked in any way to AAISP? I can't find anything that would indicate that.


They used to get backhaul from AAISP, but have since got their own infrastructure.

Where did you get that info from?

AAISP don't have their own backhaul AFAIK.
They use BT Wholesale or Talktalk Business for backhaul.

They jumped on a thread before about them saying that they used to be involved with AAISP, but then got their own backhaul. #dontshootthemessenger.

GhostBB don't have their own backhaul, and neither do AAISP.

Afternoon j0hn83 / Bryer

Just to clarify this and resolve any confusion. We use the Firebrick FB6202`s in our network which is where the AAISP involvement would have come from.

The hardware and support has been amazing which is why we continue to use them.

So I’m due to switch over to Ghost from Vodafone on Wednesday.. strangely and likely not related my sync speed has started to dive. When I left Uno for Vodafone I was syncing in the high 40’s (9up) using an old HG612. Then I got Vodafone which sync’d in the low 40’s with their older router (it died) and with their newest router/modem VOX3, but say a month after using that it started to tame the sync till now I’m syncing at 32mb, with a high SnR and interleaving of 16.
Now it is an old drop wire being the old white/grey double (figure of 8) cable but has been fine until now. I am aware Vodafone puts lines into stable and BTw usually have them on Speed.

Do we think when I switch we will see any difference and after C-19 engineering restrictions reduce I should ask nicely for a new cable into my house? Seems the previous owner was abroad when they replaced all my neighbours cables!

I was getting rid of Vodafone for shoddy customer service and locally several of us on the same exchange noticing Vodafone slowing at peak times, despite my other Vodafone connection a Gigafast FTTH one at another location, not seeing the same.

Sync, SNR, Errors, Cable and BT checker details can be seen here.

Ghost website offers little info on packages, looks like a budget isp.

The low sync and high SNRM is because your line has been banded/capped at 32.4Mb.
It will never sync above this figure unless DLM removes the cap.

During your switch to Ghost the cap should be removed.

Banding/capping is put on lines that resync too often.
Don't reboot the modem repeatedly and report any fault that causes the line to resync over and over.

The gaming packages offered by Structured Communications are under the Ghost gaming brand. They're not a separate ISP and neither are they a budget outfit. As good as the likes of A&A, Trunk Networks, Fluidone et al if not better.
