Default Re: My new DSL

Nice speeds & ping, unfortunately I'm out of the CO range at this apartment and so far I've heard no word of them enabling the RT they have in my area (yeah it's sitting there collecting dust). I loved using my DSL for gaming & Cable for downloads at the same time.

It's mostly the first hop into qwest or level3. Nothing I can do about that.

you can call your service provider or flip off an email to those backbone providers and show them what you are seeing and provide a detailed log of what your seeing.

I've tried this before, they are useless to say the least.

You probably know this already, but just for the record: Plain ADSL2 with 12/1 Mb/s would suffice here, as ADSL2+ gives 24 Mb/s downstream. For better upsteam (~3.5 Mb/s) you'd have to use Annex-M.

alot of providers are using adsl2+ not so much for the speed improvements but for the distance improvements.

Annex-M
there is also talk of aggrigating two or more dsl lines for faster throughput..ive never heard of Annex-M but from the wiki i did find on it sounds like the providers should just stick to implementing adsl2+ just for the reason of stearing clear of a propriatary or niche market.

True, but the nitpicker I am, I just had to say that.

Aggregating existing physical media is an option if there's enough copper (or whatever the media would be) laid down already, but personally I don't see a problem in taking advantage of more efficient standards such as Annex-M. However, the problem with Annex-M is distance. For example, IIRC, I'm living ~1200 metres from the DSLAM, and my ISP considers anything over 1000 metres not to match their quality standard. As also stated in Wikipedia, Annex-M is an international standard which has already been deployed in number of places, so at worst it will be "niche market". It won't be the next big thing for sparsely populated areas, but I already know a couple of fellows who are quite glad such technology is available.

I'm reasonably sure my ISP would reconsider selling me ADSL2+M if I made it clear that I understood the limitations and consequences of the distance. Fortunately for me I'm quite happy with 12/1 Mb/s for time being -- especially now that they have finally announced IPv6-connectivity by the end of the year (until now they provided IPv6 only for customers who paid for public subnet). :-) IPv6-tunnel was a nice thing to have, but I won't miss it.

Well, good news (kinda) and bad news. After a few days of having the DSL I noticed random disconnects. I called support and they sent someone out to test the lines, etc.. The tech said the distance limit is 10,000 feet and I'm 10,500 feet away. They did some testing and set it at 8mbps. The DSL provider is CenturyTel, they by FAR have the best techs/support I have ever had to deal with. I called them on Friday and they said it would take 24-48 hours to process the work order. The tech showed up at noon on saturday. He also told me that at almost all of the new subdivisions around here, CenturyTel wired with fiber and they provide TV service also.

Charter finally fixed the cable, no more packetloss and speeds/pings have improved a bit.

I'm living with my parents while saving up for a house but now I have to be picky about where I buy one.

Default Re: My new DSL

That would be my first mistake when i bought my house.

I had cable (comcast) which was nice for Downloads 4100/768 with a 100ms latency (weak sauce)

But after they charged me $150 to come and fix THEIR equipment not only once but THREE DIFFERENT TIMES I told them to shove their internet and Cable up their ass sideways.

Now I am stuck with 256k dsl

If i would have moved 4 blocks west I would get teh 7mb from qwest.

Or I could have moved 40 miles south and got Qwest Fiber ( a lot like Verizons FiOS) 10mb/10mb stupid neighborhood.


The biggest complaint of mine is that through the wasatch valley in utah about 3 years ago the government proposed a "community network" all fiber based to hubs then to 10/100/1000 to homes.

They would allow ISPs to use this network as their backbone, but also allow those whom didnt want internet to have access to all Govt. like library utilities ect.. through a intranet.

I look at it as more competitive prices for me in the end. Well the great asshole mayor of SLC spoke up saying that it would just be a great system for people who pirate software/movies... and that our current systems were more than enough for the avg user. So it failed govt funding and the contracter went under. I=still pissed......
