How many people here are connected to a ECI cabinet?
« on: March 18, 2017, 11:51:16 AM »

As the good news comes in for the Huawei cabinet people, we ECI people are like the outcast child who gets no presents from uncle BT/OR. "No G.INP or 3dB SNR for you today" we hear :(

So how many people are there on ECI cabinets? We know that ECI cabinets were stopped being installed quite a while ago, so I'm assuming ECI cabinets will be less than 50%. But I wonder if there is an actual figure for the number of ECI's compared to Huawei cabinets?

If you're not sure then you can use Kitz page: http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/cabinet-lookup.htm and follow the instructions to see which cabinet type your on.

Hi Bowdon,

ECI Cabinet here, in sunny Weston-super-Mare, Somerset. I was told by a REAL BTOR engineer that my property is approximately 700 metres from that cabinet. Not looking good for me, methinks

ECI (approx 750 metres)

People tell me that I ought to get out more. But in the words of the great Homer J Simpson, "Yeah, but what ya gonna do ?"

Eci cab in Frome. Its been repaired recently with new cables and cards after it was suggested it was going to be replaced but sadly in the end it was not. All of Frome are ECI cabs bar 2 huawei funded ones.

Its simply not fair that we pay the same yet we currently dont get the same benefits as huawei users. Lets hope OR come good eventually with ECI cabs......

Me and probably most others in Thanet as we have ECI cabinets, so Ronski is likely another one.

I have always believed it to be about 1/3 of, with 100% of BDUK been hauwei.

The rollout started as hauwei, then moved to ECI after a while, when openreach announced they were considering vectoring it then shifted back to hauwei for the final 3rd.

"We know that ECI cabinets were stopped being installed quite a while ago" - mine is a new ECI cabinet, installed early January this year.

I was the first connection to it.  Am suffering from extremely poor upstream bandwidth (old 0xd086 firmware), but otherwise ok.

Thinkbroadband recently estimated that ECI cabinets account for 6.3% of those installed under BDUK and 42% of commercial cabinets

That is interesting. So based on that nearly half of BT/OR's network can't support the upgrades they are doing.

I think they need to figure out some kind of solution for the ECI situation. I know my area is all ECI's until the most recent cabinet from BDUK was a Huawei. So if other towns are similar to mine that means whole areas are covered by ECI cabinets, i.e. not even an equal mix.

I think BT/OR are going to run in to a marketing issue if they start broadcasting about 3dB and G.INP at any major point because large numbers of customers won't benefit at all.

We need G.INP resolved first then hopefully we can have lower snr profiles. Its all gone very quiet on G.INP though, originally April was supposed to be the re-introduction so we will have to wait and see what happens...

Unfortunately large numbers don't have a clue, it's a very small minority of us that know what the difference is, or even care.

Pretty much all the cabinets around Thanet are ECI, except the BDUK one's and the very recent second cab additions.

On an ECI in Marple, Stockport.  Fortunately it's located the other side of our front garden wall, so no real negative impact for us.

Mostly ECI cabinets here in Grays, Essex, including some that were only installed in 2016.
However, in Dec 2016 I lost my broadband, a peek across the road showed my ECI box's innards laid out neatly on the pavement.
I asked the Openreach guy what the problem was and he said he was 'updating' the box which required a board change.
On completion my down speed DROPPED by 4Mbps with the same S/N of 6.2db, it's never recovered.

There's never an out-of-control, steam-powered, road-roller nearby when one wants one . . .  :D
