Does anyone have the faintest idea how G.INP fairs on a Aluminium line sadly during my Engineer visit today it turns out my line is Aluminium and not copper hence the issues i was having in the thread i posted in the FTTC FTTH issues section of the forums, looking around online i see no mention of how G.INP or Vectoring ect fair on such a line i'm not surprised given that Broadband isn't fit to run on it but hey that doesn't stop Openreach  allowing ADSL / fibre to run on it knowing full well it can't handle it.

I'm just wondering if i'm likely to see a far more negative outcome if and when my ECI cab becomes enabled because of the Aluminium line it was bad enough to learn I would never get any of my previous speed back without fearing now it could be worse should G.INP come around.

As I "see it" you should not experience any degradation of the VDSL2 based service when G.Inp is enabled. I would expect you to see an improvement but not quite as good as that for someone whose circuit is made up entirely of copper conductors.

Thanks for the reply Burakkucat sounds promising although i guess i wont really know the answer until G.INP gets enabled when ever that happens. :fingers:

Just as Burakkucat says, you will see a very worthwhile improvement when G.INP and vectoring become available, despite the aluminium.

Thanks for the update, b*cat. I'm happy to offer mine as a loan for her to test as she needs to.  I'll have a check through the guides for doing the OpenWrt flash and then I can send it on to here via whatever means is best for her.

Rgds,

Chris

Thank you for the kind offer.   
I have an ECI modem here, unfortunately though I dont do soldering or any of the UART things that is needed to get OpenWrt f/w on to the modem.
