      Oh he came in with a huawei modem i sent him back in the van for an eci to match my dslam
      he said sorry he usually matches them but forgot

      and came back with an eci revision b with and 07/12 build date
      I believe the newer revision has a newer binary blob
      and syncs faster but he didnt have any

      The line probably doesn't take a direct route like my parents line. They are about 100m from the exchange by road but their line is 1.2km long.

      The overall attenuation is higher because of the higher frequencies VDSL operates at.

      Re: Install Day

      just testing it out atm
      latency jitter bandwidth tests etc

      oddly my bedroom pc seems to have a wiring issue its maxing out at 10meg upstream
      but 76 down

      even though it can pull 800mbit either way over the lan

      no other pc is having the issue

      Re: Install Day

      I was the first person connected to the dslam in 2013

      I briefly removed the eci openreach modem earlier to check the line stats
      these will be slightly worse than if i was to pull them directly from the eci
      due to being unmatched

      but at worst i have lost 3.3db of margin in 2 years
      the downstream sync isnt actually interleaved (3ms to first external hop)
      I suspect its down to G.INP being deployed
      The ECI Syncs at 79996 and the SR102 79987

      Here's my line stats 2 years later

      Re: Install Day

      Just to close this puppy up my line is going down for g.fast in the next 2 hours

      Here's a comparison of an empty cab in 2013 and a full one in 2019

      2013 12.0db downstream margin
      2015 8.6db downstream margin
      2019 5.9db downstream margin

      Re: Install Day

      For anyone interested in how the G.fast Install went

      I have an attainable of 399 down and 62 up
      Ping to the cabinet went from 3.6ms to 2ms
      Latency to london internet exchange went from 8ms to 6ms
      not bad considering im 150 miles from london and tbh i wasnt expecting better latency than fastpath vdsl2

      C:\Windows\system32>tracert 79.79.79.79

      Tracing route to public-dns-a.as9105.net [79.79.79.79]
      over a maximum of 30 hops:

      1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms aurora.shonk.org [192.168.0.1]
      2 1 ms 2 ms 2 ms public-dns-a.as9105.net [79.79.79.79]
