  1. I am not sure this is as good as thought at first glance. Single thread performance does not seem great, eg if I have a have a single connection to a server and am downloading a single file the connection seems capped to less that half of the theoretical maximum speed. I can work around this using a download manager however which can split the download up. Speedtest.net gives a good result because it uses multiple threads / connections. The speedtest at thinkbroadband shows single thread performance. Still very good for torrenting those Linux ditros however.
  2. looks like the extra monthly price it costs for the 100 mb optimal over the 100 mb landline option is oh, about the rental cost of a landline.
  3. @Smeagle It was this, obviously MT were enforcing the limit until they officially released upto 100 which the Sure helpdesk were unaware of. Seeing 94 down now which is nice.
  4. Thanks, yes I saw that I am synced at over 100 now as well but on throughput tests on speedtest (yes not scientific) performed at various times of the day and night I hit a definite ceiling of 80 hence the question. I see MT say the 4th of December, but Sure say its live now,
  5. Sure are advertising their superfast package as 100+ now, up from 80, and I was wondering if any sure users on this package had seen over 81 on speedtest.net? (It will only be people fairly close to a green fibre cabinet that will be able to get this)
  6. Thanks Don, hopefully someone else who is can respond.
  7. I think this means vectoring is not enabled on your line as there is no data.but I am not sure. Are you connected to a green cabinet and do you know if it has been upgraded to support vectoring? I would be interested to know if anyone who has this router sees any data in that section.
  8. Thanks for that, but can you click show advanced at the top right, then scroll down to the vectoring section and screen shot that bit please.
  9. Can someone with the device who is on ultima / vdsl please copy and paste the vectoring stats from the router admin page , diagnostics > xDSL > show advanced, scroll down Do you get any data in those stats?
  10. Hi Joe, glad you got it sorted. Do your vectoring stats show a vce mac address, are you able to run a xdscmd/xdslctl info --vectoring on your router ?
  11. Great! What is that up from? I have tried two vectoring capable modems now, both of which report vectoring is off here. (Huawei and Technicolor)
  12. Do your modems actually show vectoring is enabled? Mine is saying it isn't and I have had no speed change after the maintenance window in which it was supposed enabled on my cabinet. In the couple of weeks leading up to that I also noticed that G.inp had been disabled but in my case it has increased my ping and lost me about 4 -5 mbps on throughput with it off.
  13. I am with sure and have a openreach huawei hg612 3b purchased from ebay currently syncing between 60 and 70. I think vectoring is being enabled tonight on my line so it will be interesting to see what happens as crosstalk has lost me about 40% over the last few years. I thought the installation of a vdsl faceplate prevented telephone interference?
