We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
A bit lower than I usually get for download, and dont let the ping fool ya, its still as bad as ever with slow/not loading pages, pictures missing from pages or fuzzy, etc.
Still not got to the bottom of whats wrong this end, ECI cab (check) ECI modem (check) HH5(B) (check) or HH4(A) still getting lag, with or without the modem. Maybe I shoulda gotten a HH5(A)
The only happy people I know is my mobile phone provider, with all the extra usage I'm using on that just to read the flipping news, or emails from rich saudi lawyers offering me millions, or who has recently poked me on fb
Might take a leaf out of Geek's post and put some really big nails through the ECI cab across the road, lol.
There are many who where using or had access to a unlocked modem such as the HG612 before G.inp was rolled out, and followed by this fix, and as a result now have a lower upstream sync rate, some are fortunate to have a high enough attainable rate so they aren't loosing any sync speed, but some are reporting loosing 2mbps or so,
If you compare using a non g.inp compatible modem ECI prior to the fix/g.inp rollout and after it, of course there will be an improvement in latency and sync speed, although whilst using the ECI you wouldn't be able to confirm this as they are locked down and have no gui for stats
But it isnt a proper solution it's a cop out, BT blundered yet again
Seems some new G.INP profiles are being rolled, (reading the posts on BTretails sister isp plusnet -)
Still think the case bt lost back in November had a bigger impact on their line mangement software than was first thought.
Still no fix for eci's though 😞 Just hope with all these trails - they don't mess up the hg612 3B as well
At this rate it September at the earliest before it anywhere near its fixed[patched} nationally.
Will these g.inp problems impact the new 4K football streaming ??
The fix removes G.inp from the upstream and re enables fast path but with a higher ammount of foward error correction so no inpact on latency but is known to have some impact on upstream sync speeds or could if your max attainable rate /snr is close to the max sync/ target noise margin of 6db on the upstream i lost some snr and attainable dur to this borked fix using an unlocked HG612
So its worse ?
Looks a ducktap , bungee & chewing gum approach untill something better is figured out?
Oh well roll on September, hopefully this 4k streaming football might speed up a solution for a proper fix, rather than front ending the hh5a & swaping eci/r for HG612 3B's.
Is anyone beta testing the hh6 yet to see if that works with these new line settings?
It still looks like I'm defending a broken system they've put in place but its been working better for me than ever before.
I apologise for sounding like a broken record. But I think in hindsight it'd be better when something "proper" is put in place.
This kind of **bleep** up is bad. My HH5A and ECI set up is the best one for me as the HH5A's aren't exactly the best by themselves.
I do hope a real resolution is in place as I do seem to be the only one praising an improvement.
Its just the fact the adsl line checker still says my max upload is 7.5 and I'm getting over 9 now. Plus way better latency.
Hopefully they'll realise they will need to do something proper. It reminds me of Virgin in a way when I used to be with them - They'd patch something up hoping it'd work for awhile until people noticed and kicked up a stink. Perhaps I shouldn't post on the positives and I'm kinda angry with myself praising it but knowing its a patch job really.
