Re: Superfast 2 Vectoring


[re: mrmarktigger] [link to this post]
 
If you are unlucky that is possible, it all depends on the location of your line pair in the cable bundle from the cabinet, if a new VDSL connection in close proximity to your line in the cable is activated then a substantial drop due to crosstalk is likely. I have seen reports of a 50% reduction in speed but that is rare. it would be so much better if vectoring was enabled on all cabinets but it costs money so is not going to happen. frown

Many thanks for the info Realalemadrid.
I'll get a another vdsl line installed from another isp and some load balancing kit.
that way I should be able to compare the two lines too maybe as well.

And if the issue is cross talk getting another line installed for comparison purposes may slow your connection speed even more.

Yes indeed MrSaffron. My thinking is though, please tell me if i'm wrong, going by the impacted handback threshold on my street cabinet of 52.4 Mbit/s. and I'm getting speed quotes for a brand new line of 59.1 to 80. Using this as a guide only of course, 2 x 52.4 is 104.8. Even 2 x 40 is 80.
Much better than 62, which could or is highly likely slow further with more subscribers from whats been said.
Also current vdsl line is with voda, so the throughput is currently rubbish constantly too, no matter what time of day or night too. That should be fixed by switching that one to another provider in November.

yes 2 x 40 is better than what you have now, but load balancing is not going to give you access to 80 Mbps for one download. You need much more expensive line bonding to really get the higher speeds.

Impacted handback does not guarantee the speeds of course, it just means the point at which ISP will listen and let you walk from contract if need be, nothing about them rearranging all the wiring in an area to get your speeds back up to the guarantee.

Many thanks for the info MrSaffron. How much more would that be?

Bonding to work properly needs co-operation from the ISP so looking at someone like AAISP and their Firebrick solution,

Why have BT not enabled vectoring across their cabs?

If it was easy they would have done it.

I've been told for ECI fibre cabinets (currently model M41) they would really need to replace them with ECI model V41 cabinets like what are used in Germany which they are never going to do.
