My name is Ryan and while rooting around for information about 3rd party VDSL routers for my grandfather I happened upon this site and remembered an acquaintance suggested I should join.
I live in the rural village of Ockley in Surrey and in the part of the village in which I reside has recently been 'enabled' for FTTP. If permitted I would like to post in the FTTC/FTTP sub forum with a diary of sorts of the installation. If anyone has any suggestions as to how I might begin I would appreciate it.
Until then I can tell you that when I first moved here we had ADSL and a few years ago we got upgraded if you will to ADSL2 and now enjoy speeds of around 5.5Mbps down and 0.5Mbps up. On a good day with the wind in the right direction it can reach up to 6Mbps down. Not bad for a 5km line! I get a better sync speed than BT Home Hubs and for that matter the JDSU (I think it's called) equipment Openreach engineers use. Current equipment is an Asus DSL-N55U which I am also after getting some assistance with at some point.
Anyway hope to learn a few things and maybe even dispense some things I have learned
