'If there is poor electrical wiring in the property, the powerline / homeplugs will not be effective' that applies to all broadband though
I had a good chat with a knowledgeable guy from BT ultrafast repair team a while ago, and i was told that the powerlines would not have any adverse affect on the G.fast bandwidth data track coming from DSLAM, (if there is poor electrical wiring in the property, the powerline / homeplugs will not be effective).
Of course they wouldn't have any affect on speed from the DSLAM, that much is obvious. IIRC there was a thread recently where TP-Link powerline adaptors caused problems with the hub. I'm sure @Keith_Beddoe has something about it on his site. Unfortunately I don't have access but I think he would post a link for you.
Ultimately the best form of connection is via ethernet cable which can be up to 100mtrs in length with no loss of speed.
Link as requested.
@pippincp I forgot you were with another provider. If you have a static IP address, I could add it as an exception to my webserver. Not really practical otherwise, as certain ISPs have individual customers who misbehave, and I do not have enough bandwidth to spare.
G.fast frequencies start at 17Mbs upward, and some Powerline adapters can go up to 30Mbs. It possible the fix for the TP-Link ones described on my web page, would stop those frequencies being used, as it seems to restrict the frequency range to below 17Mbs.
I don’t have any experience on G.Fast as I don’t do it but do a lot of FTTP.
I’ve come across quite a few people who use Home Plugs that worked fine with ADSL/VDSL but don’t seem to work well with FTTP.
Don’t know if it’s the Smart Hub or Plugs, couldn’t say as we’re not paid to fault beyond our demarcation point, which is the ONT.
As my Develo homeplugs are not working properly with newly installed FTTP and BT Smarthub, has anyone experience using Develo Magic 2 kit with FTTP and Smarthub?
