Tips & advice for new Billion/SSE user w/ 41.0att & 12.1snr?

Post by gingerbeardman » Tue Jun 30, 2015 12:08 am

Hi all,

Thanks for this forum - a real knowledge base!

I am new to Billion and am an SSE customer. I'm on their £12.50pcm 18 month deal.
Signup was slow (one month) but I am now connected and happy.

Attenuation is 41.0 here beside the Regent's Canal in King's Cross, London. (no fibre or cable on my street)

SSE router (Technicolor TG582n, not as bad as its reputation would have you believe) was getting ~9000 sync rate plug and play.
Web GUI spells out that the SSE router has had some tweaking done whilst they set it up for the customer.

Billion by default was getting ~8000 with a 12.1 SNR :?

I manually adjusted the Billion with value 65535 for target SNR of 6.1 and a now sync rate of ~10000 :)
A far cry from my 38Mb infinity line that I just moved away from, but such is life.

Max sync rate currently showing ~12000

We'll see how it goes over the coming week :)

Any tips or advice appreciated.

Thanks,
matt
