I think he's just duplicated the advert and only changed the title, not the 5M in the description so chances are it's 2M.

That's what I was thinking. No reply as yet might hear tomorrow.

I too found the Tandy cable synced slower than a bog standard ADSL cable. I have a hardwired VDSL extension through Cat5e and to that I have plugged in a Billion 8800NL cable and no issues.

So got a Cat 6 cable today and suitable quick testing has been done.

Cat6 RJ45-RJ11 76/17
Old Billion Flat cable 78/17

Hmm.

Hmm.

I found a similar thing, the cable included with the Smart Hub was the best syncing cable.

I have my router connected to a hardwired Cat5e extension with a Billion cable plugged into it now and the speed is the same as directly plugged in, as far as I recall.

Are the extra, unconnected, wires in the Cat 6 acting as an aerial and picking up interference?

Could be, I have a BT cable to come to test with twisted pair but after my experiments so far I am not expecting great things.

Hmm.

I'd also suggest comparing the rate of CRC errors and error seconds. Better quality cables don't always give better speeds but they often can give fewer errors.

Currently I have 0 DS ES and about 23 US ES on the flat cable. No difference in US sync with both cables so maybe I can reduce US ES?

the cables are more about reliability than speed in my opinion

So I have ordered a RJ11 to RJ45 flat cable to see if that is as good as the billion.
