Re: Post Your Line Stats!

That is the thing lots do have Type A`s but no one except me has posted on here with a Type A and I feel like the odd one out lol.

 

Yup it would be nice if they could lift the cap, perhaps they could allow us to get it lifted for us with short lines then again I doubt they would.

I wish the G.Fast trials came to Sunderland. A friend in Newcastle is in the trial in Gosforth. And I am jealous but still I should feel lucky from what I am getting on Infinity 2.

 

Still going nicely. 🙂

I did post an overview of stats for the hh5a.

Notice that you have a connection time of 2 days+.

Would be interested to see see how long you keep that connection for, in the North East.

Mine reboots every 14 days, with occasional reboots in between, ( presumably for noise margin adjustments).

The 14 day reboots are are a known problem for Openreach. Wonder if it's specific to HH5a?

 

Also noted that you have the firmware forg.inp.

Is this what you mean by g.fast?

I have same firmware version, but there's no g.inp enabled, and I,m still ignorant about these things.

Re: Post Your Line Stats!

The every 14 days thing is an odd one. The poster imjolly found out that it is to do with DLM and nothing can be done about it. Well the thing is all through 2013 mine did not reboot every 14 days until January 21st 2014 when people were complaining about the 1.6 update on the HH5A at the time. I had a HH4A and ECI modem then and it was affecting all sorts of BT and openreach equipment. I do think BT/openreach changed something then.

One thing I noticed when I got my HH5A at my old place is my noise margin would be changing freqently and the max data rate would change rapidly also, unlike here where the noise margin would only change 0.1 or 0.2db throughout the day from time to time and would only last 3 days max at my old place before rebooting itself - Using the HH5A with my ECI modem would allow me to stay connected for 14 days then reboot. The reboots would not affect my speeds but my line attenuation would change up or down on each reboot with the HH5A alone.

 

Perhaps my line had underlying issues and the inbuilt modem was more sensitive to these imperfections on my line. Not sure it is strange.

 

G.Fast is referring to even more faster speeds over FTTC I think the fastest possible is 800 down and 200 up again all depends on distance from the cabinet, the closer the better - Bringing fibre a bit closer to homes and how they do this I am not too sure as it all goes over my head I just remember bits here and there I did understand so not quite FTTP. I believe people further away, not sure of the exact distance wont benefit from this. It is best to google it as I am not good at explaining it but blimey it is fast! 

I think G.INP is Impulse Noise Protection right?

 

I am not sure I have G.INP enabled yet on my line. As it was only activated 2 days ago so I shall see how it goes with that. I think I will only get it if DLM thinks I need it.

Yes, I think g.inp activation shows in the modulation, in the hub statistics.

Mine is set at G 993.2 Annex B, hence g.inp is not active----even though the cabinet type allows it .

 

IMJ has suggested a factory reset, to see if it changes....but prefer to wait, as it's not urgent.

 

You may see a reset / reboot after the initial 14 days or so, if it's a new install.

The max data rate will show a value to be within the capped level.

Re: Post Your Line Stats!

I never noticed the HH5 would change its modulation in the hub stats based on G.INP being enabled or not. Then again when I was in the trial I had it hooked up to my ECI for stability so could not see this change.

 

I myself am leaving things alone too and let it do its thing too plus its a new install so dont want to mess with anything really.

 

The thing is this every 14 day reboot has been happening since last year in January. I am just hoping what I had in my previous place wont happen here based on my HH5 reporting what it did in the line stats and the like. So far *touch wood*all seems way better here. Even the wireless seems way more quicker and snappier. Using wireless N. Getting 75/18 in my bedroom with the doors closed and the thick walls here. YouTube on the stats for nerds menu that shows the speeds whilst watching videos are always over 50Mbps. Highest I seen was on a 4K video and the speed was peaking at 76Mbps! 

 Latency over wireless is a little hit and miss but via cmd seems more consistent lowest I seen was 12ms. I use ethernet for gaming. Wireless is more for convenience anyway.

 

Time will only tell - Saying that I have a friend who has a HH5A and is near his cabinet and has an uptime of over 90 or so days with the same speeds as me. Perhaps the HH5A is way more harsher on lines with little problems here and there. Again just assumption of course.

Nice stats, duncansby! Looks like you are currently achieveing a higher download data rate than possible for your line. Interesting.

Re: Post Your Line Stats!

I was hoping more people would be interested in this type of thread. I was always curious of how other peoples lines performed to mine. 😛

 

Nice to see you got an increase there. 

 

I noticed on line 6 on your data rate you get the full 40. I think you have G.INP enabled on your line which is good. Unless it has always been like that then forget what I typed haha.

 

In my old place when I had Infinity 1 I always had 39993, then 40000 and it reverted back to 39993. But I had an upload increase of 7Mbps to just over 9Mbps. Which impressed me back then lol.

 

I have no idea if I have G.INP enabled on my Infinity 2 though. I wish I could find out.

 

Mark.
