Legibility of diagrams
« on: August 21, 2020, 01:27:37 PM »

Apologies for moaning/whinging etc  ;)

Regarding the diagram at https://kitz.co.uk/adsl/fibre-optic-broadband.htm#fttrn, looking at the text labels surrounding the section ‘Exchange’ on the far left, I can’t read the majority of them because they are a bit fuzzy low-res and with one or two the contrast against the white background isn’t great - pale yellow on white.

Could anyone help me/us out and spruce up the diagram a bit in these areas? I don’t have the tools or the expertise in using them. I’m thinking though that I might know some people who do though.

A second diagram, at https://kitz.co.uk/adsl/fttp.htm#fttp_home_environment has black on white text that is extremely fuzzy and I can’t read some of it at all. Sorry. ???  :-[


While I’m on the subject of that page as a whole, at the very end of the page there’s a chart entitled ‘Distribution of speeds by connection technology’. A question: are those speeds upstream/downstream or what? and also, what year are we talking about?

According to the end of the page, the graph was added in 2016

Using data from OFCOMs Infrastructure Report published December 2014, which states:

The chart above shows the distribution of all connections by technology in June 2014

I believe the speeds referred to are downstream sync speeds.
