BT Reveals UK FTTC Self Installation and Vectoring Broadband Trials

"BTWholesale has revealed the seemingly imminent launch of a new ISP trial to test the operators first wires-only self install superfast broadband service (no engineer required), which could dramatically cut the setup cost and contract length of UK FTTC lines. A trial of VDSL Vectoring (faster FTTC speeds) is also on the cards."

Re: BT Reveals UK FTTC Self Installation and Vectoring Broadband Trials

The self install has been known for a while, also the vectoring will only really have a noticeable affect on short - medium lines. You're less likely to see change on longer lines...

That's untrue, quite the opposite in fact.

Except you can't post external links but just type VDSL2 17a profile Vectoring Graphs, then read and look through some PDFs and you will see it clearly benefits people with short - medium lines.

External links are fine as long as they aren't advertising/promoting other ISP's products/services or for external e-commerce websites.

External links are perfectly acceptable. See Dean's post for clarification. Some of those graphs show a 10Mb/s boost for 1000m line, not bad at all.

Re: BT Reveals UK FTTC Self Installation and Vectoring Broadband Trials

Though short - medium lines gaining more of the benefits... also I wouldn't really count 1000m as long.

Point is, there's always something to be gained. BT's choice and implementation of vectoring is unknown at this time. It would be silly to pluck the result from a random graph and apply it to BT's predicament.
