Knowing if you are on ECI or Huawei cab will determine if G.INP will be possibly activated in near future giving speed boost

Whilst I'm waiting for the DLM Reset speeds to change, here is the other curious thing I know.
When the Openreach Engineer was here. The test on the line passed. However, there was a problem with the Broadband Circuit Service ID (not entirely sure if that's correct).
I believe the DSLAM was not correctly reporting my circuit ID to BT's servers. He went away to look at the DSLAM for quite a while and then came back and said don't worry about it? - it was a Friday afternoon haha!!
These are the problems it presents:
When an automated fault test is run remotely by BT it shows a fault with the "BT Retail Servers" (see pic below)
Another problem is when you run a speed test from http://speedtest.btwholesale.com/ and click through to further diagnostics it says:
Your speed test has completed and the results are shown above, however during the test an error occurred while trying to retrieve additional details regarding your service. As a result we are unable to determine if the speed you received during the test is acceptable for your service. Please re-run the test if you require this additional information.
This might be a cosmetic problem, the broadband might still be working fine, but doesn't seem right
The automated test systems cannot obtain the correct information about the line.
The engineer said this was an issue with the DSLAM not with my broadband and had never seen that problem before
Anyone else seen that issue before?
that is a common report from btspeedtester - basically btspeedtester didn't work. it could work the next time you try or try with different browser
did you check the link I posted to see your estimated speed range and exchange and cabinet
Sorry, I did thank. Its a Hauwei Cabinet and here are the line details:
|Featured Products||Downstream Line Rate(Mbps)||Upstream Line Rate(Mbps)||Downstream Handback Threshold(Mbps)||WBC FTTC Availability Date||WBC SOGEA Availability Date||Left in Jumper|
|VDSL Range A (Clean)||80||77.4||20||19||72.8||Available||--||--|
|VDSL Range B (Impacted)||80||76.1||20||19||71||Available||--||--|
that's good so given a stable connection the DLM should activate G.INP in 7/10 days giving a boost to your conenction speed and lower noise margin
Reporting back as promised, after roughly 1.5 days of uptime ... a re-sync occured last night at midnight.
Re-synced at 79,998kbps and speed has returned to what it was before the copper fault 71Mbps
|Connection Speed||79998 kbps||19999 kbps|
|Line Attenuation||7.5 db||7.7 db|
|Noise Margin||6.3 db||15.3 db|
Here is what you might be able to help with, the SNR has gone up!? from 6.0db to 6.3db but speed has increased?
Is this the G.INP turning back on?
Very happy if this stays at 71Mbps wondering if any other changes will happen now or this is it?
a minor fluctuation in noise margin is normal and could just as easily go back down again the next day as long as connection stable at max speed then no problems
