@cbdeakin 

The answer is no.

 

PlusNet are not running a Trial as such - they put a few lines (about 19 I believe) up just to get an idea of what's what. Nobody else is being added.

Re: ECI Cabinets

What just 19 people? That seems a little low for a trial 🤔

Re: ECI Cabinets

That’s 19 that we in this thread know that’s on it.
As you can see in the first post Openreach are testing it on 100,000 circuits so there will be customers out there not knowing they are on the trial.

Re: ECI Cabinets

Plusnet are not running the trial as such they don't have the manpower etc to do so, Bob Pullen was able to pull some strings and get a Select few (19 in total compared to hundreds with other ISPs) on to it, He thought it was worth seeing how it would go as it would be of benefit if successful.

Re: ECI Cabinets

Just had a power cut, after re sync my upstream stats have taken quite a jump

u/s snr was 7.0 speed 13.5Mbps it's now showing snr 10.2 speed 15.9Mbps

Could G.INP have been applied to the u/s as well as d/s? Any ideas...

Re: ECI Cabinets

Its not unusual to get a faster sync initially after a power cut, as not all your neighbours will necessarily come online at the same time.

I do not believe they would have enabled g.INP on upstream as I believe that is what broke the last trial as things like the Home Hub 5 don't like it, which is effectively the standard Plusnet router and likely still heavily used on BT.

I was in fact using the Plusnet Hub with OpenWRT initially but had to switch to a Broadcom based modem as I was losing sync randomly with no obvious reason why.

Re: ECI Cabinets

ECI doesn't support G.INP on the upstream it's download only so the increase wouldn't be in relation to that, most likely just a lucky time that the Sync took place with no interference etc causing it to be lower.

8 days into the trials.

The maximum downstream mrate has increased by a further 2 Mbps,  3.6 in total.

No other changes. Current stats can be seen Here
