Re: Cincinnati Bell IPTV

addendum...

The day after I posted the above my DSL service went down...
then came back up with some AWESOME signal levels. Walked
down the street and sure enough a couple techs were working
at the box; said they were moving ~150 DSL users over.

Took CBT a day or so to shake everything out, but I now
have the full 5M service with the following signal levels:

Transceiver Information   Downstream Path    Upstream Path
DSL Speed (Kbits/Sec)     5051               764
Margin (dB)               31.0               13.0
Line Attenuation (dB)     10.0               5.5
Transmit Power (dBm)      10.9               9.7

I called CBT customer service...

Given the new hardware, I can upgrade to 10Mb service for $5/mo more,
but I will have to give up my (now grandfathered) 'Priced for Life' guarantee.

hmmm...

Do it. The speed increase will be worth it. I don't see the pricing going up in any significant way anytime in the near future where the "Priced For Life" would be something worth keeping over doubling your speed.

Glad to see they're rolling out more FTTN (fiber to the node) so DSL customers receive faster and more reliable service. CBT has really been aggressive with fiber as of late.
