Thread: Sync faster than 10mb?

    They won't put you faster than 10Mb, their infrastructure cant handle the people on 10Mb already. You will just saturate the exchange on a faster sync, as their backhaul links dont support it yet.

    Um, you get this info where?

    Faster sync speeds for everyone means less congestion on the backhaul links.

    Think of it this way, you're travelling on a highway with a speed limit of 100KM/h(10Mbps), it'll take you 2 hours to drive 200KM, now they increase the speed limit to 200KM/h(20Mbps) now it only takes you one hour to complete your journey of 200KM and you're off the highway making space for other users to use the space you were using. The cars piddling along at 3.8KM/h(384k users) and 10KM/h(1Mbps) are the ones that cause congestion not the one flying down at 100KM/h

    Currently there are a lot of users on 384Kbps and 1Mbps lines that sit and download 24/7, congesting the exchanges, to get down a couple of gigs. Give them a 10Mbps line and it'll only take them a few hours, hell I've done 20GB in 6 hours on my 10Mbps line.

    The faster the line is the less time you will spend downloading meaning more time for other users that share the bandwidth to the exchange with you.

    lol. If you give them a faster line they will download more, and the system will stay congested. The rest of your argument is pretty pointless too, do you think they are doing the upgrades to support 20 and 40Mbps just for fun, when all they can do is make you sync faster? Go read some of the posts and see how fast the backhaul links are.

    More what? pr0n?

    Seriously there is only so much you can download.

    They are upgrading the infrastructure to shorten the local loop length and to deploy VDSL equipment that can go up to 40Mbps, the reason why Telkom isn't providing anything faster than 10Mbps ADSL is because the local loop length is too long on average.

    They are upgrading backhaul links all the time, mostly replacing them with fiber cables as copper is slow and gets stolen all the time.

    Most of the upgrades Telkom are doing at the moment revolves around shortening the local loop length to provide higher sync speeds not upgrading the backhual as a single fiber can carry up to 40Gbps depending on your termination equipment.

    I know for a fact that there are at least 4 fiber cables running into my exchange, which is a relatively small exchange compared to some of the other ones around here.

    Backhaul isn't the issue to providing faster sync speeds, local loop length is. Why do you think they are replacing the current 2700 DSLAMs with 3600 MSANs?

    The MSANs will still end up on the same backhaul links as the current DSLAMs.
