After all these years I finally have VDSL!
« on: October 22, 2016, 10:23:37 AM »

Needless to say, after countless years on a slow ADSL connection, it has changed my life.
And considering the distance, the speed and stability has been very impressive indeed!

Estimated D-Side Length: 1.2km

BT Wholesale Estimate:
VDSL Range A (Clean)    26.7    18    5.8    3.8    --    Available    --    --
VDSL Range B (Impacted)    21.5    10.2    4.7    1.4    --    Available    --    --

Actual sync speed:
33.41 Mbps

Because of a glitch in the checker when I initially ordered (it was estimating 10Mbps max!), I am on the long distance "Unlimited Faster Broadband" product with BT and upload is capped at 2Mbps.

Speed test over LAN:

The upload speed on the unlimited faster broadband product is not limited to 2MB if your line can support more - have a look at https://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Infinity-Speed-Connection/Unlimited-Faster-Broadband-Max-Upload-speed/td-p/1605310/page/4 - and contact the BT forum moderators to get it changed

Excellent, thanks that's good to know. I'll get it checked out.

Maximum data rate: 7656 / 32810
Noise margin: 5.7 / 6.1
Line attenuation: 27.5
Signal attenuation:
VPI / VCI: 0/38
