I was going to to say ‘those were the days’, but in my case the tense would be wrong; it would need to be something like ‘those will hopefully be the days one day’. I wish I could get something like >5 Mbps per line, I’m not at the ‘good old days’ yet; my english language breaks down  ??? :)

I could only push 3.5Mbit max once I moved onto Openreach (as no forcing 3dB SNRm) and the estimates now are 2Mbit.

Did you ever figure out of you can get any better off a different 4G network to what AAISP use?

We have EE and Three here; O2 is not so good. I am seriously thinking about the 4G plus AA L2TP VPN solution that was described by another AA using kitizen elsewhere. However I am concerned about the reliability and the speed. Our Three 4G is not very fast and I need to measure EE. I did a test just now in bed on my iPad using AA / AQL / Three 3G and it seems that 4G wasn’t available; this measured 8 Mbps downstream / 0.88 Mbps upstream. This is slower than DSL but if tested in a window the results ought to be much better and 4G should be available. It is a line-of-sight location so there’s no excuse for 4G in a window not being really fast. There are times when 3G/4G simply goes out to lunch, yet combined bonded DSL for all practical purposes never ever fails even though individual lines go down occasionally.

@RealAleMadrid - Why only 8.128 Mbps down on such a short line ? I realise that’s the limit for G.992.1, but why isn’t it selecting G.992.5 ?

@Weaver. Simple answer, ADSL2+ was not available at the small village exchange. I think it did get upgraded but at about the same time as FTTC arrived so I moved to 80Mbps down 20Mbps up, quite a good result. ;D

I was in that same boat until about five years ago. I should have remembered.
