Hi @bobpullen my bt ip is 64.16Mbps but my Plusnet profile is wrong at 63.8Mbps?

Should be aligned now. You'll need to disconnect/reconnect.

@Ensor & @Dodger21, I'm not really in a position to oversee DLM resets, and neither do I believe such a thing is straightforward on FTTC. Would suggest starting a new thread if it's something you'd like one of the support guys to pick up. That said, in your case @Dodger21 it might be worth holding fire to see if the cap get's lifted on it's own accord as part of the trial.

The normal snrm is 6db for VDSL2 so if it is higher than this the sync speed has been artificilally capped or banded by DLM.

Another give away is your attainable sync rate being above your actual sync rate (but within your product cap).

Re: ECI Cabinets

Could someone advise me on my BT IP-p

The results from the speed checker

 Download speedachieved during the test was - 48.48 Mbps
 For your connection, the acceptable range of speedsis 40 Mbps-51.7 Mbps .
 Additional Information:
 IP Profile for your line is - 51.7 Mbps


Before this trial my sync was 50,877, highest really, it was anywhere from 48-51Mbps. 


Since the trial started I've gained a higher rate, synced at 56Mbps with 57Mbps max rate. Does that suggest my IP Profile is stuck and I should reboot? Or what is the best course of action. 

I generally try not to interfere and just let it do it's thing.

Re: ECI Cabinets





I have been on to support and asked for a reset but I will have to wait until later to restart the router as it is in use for home working at present.

Just a note to your last line Bob I’m on Unlimited Fibre Extra at my request.

Re: ECI Cabinets

I'd gladly have this enabled on my line. If i'm too late for this round please count me in for next time.

BiPAC 8900X R3 router/modem. Can switch back to ECI modem if needed. ECI cabinet. Interleaving enabled since approx Summer 2019.

>>>Can switch back to ECI modem if needed

If you do ever get g.inp, I'd recommend you don't bother.   The f/w is outdated and only supports downstream g.inp - not that this alone makes much difference on an ECI cab, but to be honest we've found that on most lines the BCM based modems outperform the ECI modems unless you are on a long line.    Also unless the ECI modem is hacked you wont have access to any linestats.  I'd stick with your Billion.

Re: ECI Cabinets

Everything seems good my end so far, after 1.5 days up since a reboot to fix stuck IP profile 😀

my INP went from 47 to 48 on the reboot, tried downloads etc will stream on netflix a bit tonight seems fast though

do see reed-solomon at 9210 not sure why. ping is 16ms to since INP of 48, which increased by 2ms.

no errors ES or SES at all, were reported on the reboot. the upstream is fine also

also not sure why bearer 1 has inp 3 and actual inp 4.01, i dont think bearer one is used.

No worries, I'll get onto tech support when they open later on.

Re: ECI Cabinets

A few days ago I noticed the increase of about 3Mbps in my sync speed but am not sure I am seeing an increase in my actual throughput, is it worth rebooting the router at all and therefore risk it syncing at. slower speed, or just leave things as they are?

Re: ECI Cabinets

Me too, I posted a few posts above about how my sync went from 50Mbps to 56Mbps with G.INP 

But my BT IP Profile is 51.7Mbps 


I don't know wether this is a stuck IP Profile or wether this is a G.INP feature where the SyncRate*0.91 high ReTx or SyncRate*0.96 low ReTx


If so I'd rather not reboot for no reason if this is intended and not a stuck profile. Just looking for advice too. Maybe this is feedback so the engineers can look at the control and make a change to the system to ensure a resync changes the speed profile too. 


P.s. anyone know if G.INP for ECI cabs on this trial will attempt a 5/4/3dB target or is it just for stability at 6dB to keep it on fast path and the associated fast path speed gain?

Re: ECI Cabinets

2 days into the trials.

The maximum rate has increased by 1.6 Mbps, modem connection speed has increased by 1.6 Mbps.

SNR increased from 5.8 Mbps to 6.3 , the ES/hour now reduced to 0

IP profile increased from 60.35 Mbps to  61.72 but the speed reported by devices has dropped from 59 Mbps to 57, like others I’m tempted to re-boot the modem but I won’t unless advised.

Overall very impressed with the very solid connection and lack of errors.

Current stats can be seen here

Re: ECI Cabinets

This is just a trial for G.INP and that alone as ECI currently doesn't support it and would be required for the 3db profile to even be considered, The trial is expected to last until August, when if successful G.INP should be rolled out to all ECI cabs & lines, I'm sure further monitoring would take place then maybe the 3db profile introduced.

With all that said I wouldn't expect to see it any time soon I would be very surprised if it were this year and that's if G.INP is a success with all previous attempts Openreach has failed on ECI cabs but this trial so far is looking more promising.

Re: ECI Cabinets

Please add me too. Snr dropped too 3 in 2018 trial on my ECI cabinet. Down stream went from 60 too 72. Been stuck on 6dB since.

Re: ECI Cabinets

I would leave the routers alone at the moment because I’m guessing Openreach will be all over seeing our lines checking the errors and performance and if we start rebooting that will show as a fault.
I’m just letting the DLM do what it needs to do.
