Re: Just Got Turbo 50

It is a soft launch, so I would expect it not to be listed quite yet and yes it may not be available it all areas. If you call up Telus I am sure they would be happy to do a check on your line to see if it is.

I'll do just that! Although, I have an ALU connected to a (TELUS) DLink and my own router. I saw another thread where the ALU doesn't have enough internal memory to fully support 50/10... So I need to figure out how to be able to use my own network equipment w/the Actiontech... or find a new modem that WILL support the higher speeds.

*sigh* Why can't ISPs have a set of equipment for those of us that like to be different?

The ALU will work perfectly fine with QoS on. I installed the modded firmware (has PhyR and SRA enabled) and disabled QoS.

It made a difference of about 0.5 to 0.7 megabits in speed tests using »vancouver.speedtest.telus.com

So even if you leave QoS on, there really isn't too huge of an impact on HS50.

Good to know. I've done one firmware update on my ALU so far, that was last year. Might look for the new one and do it as well. Thanks!

So far, impressed - even switching from 100 Meg Shaw connection... loving the upload speed!

FYI, using my Asus RT-N56U router instead of the Actiontec (which is only being used for TELUS TV via Gigabit Switch). I have GPON service in a MDU.

I had BB100 too for some time. I was nice from 3am to 11am.

I was lucky enough not to have many slow downs with the BB100. I'm going to cross my fingers that TELUS releases a 100 Mbps connection for those with Fibre connections, sooner than later.

It a possibility.

VDSL2 has been great for me. I will definitely upgrade everytime a new profile becomes available in my area.

Finally got things working properly for my new Optik 50.




When I first has QoS issues after the initial install, the Tech said my line was reading over 100Mbps so the signal is very good. I hope that's a sign of things to come.

I'm using the same Actiontec V1000H as before. Running the hacked firmware with Bridge mode on version 31.30L.48

I had to do a factory reset to put the modem back into it's default settings because I have messed around with the ADSL profiles in the modem a bit too much and was getting massive packetloss when they first turned it on.

So according to the estimate on the modem this thing could go up to 140Mbps down and 50Mbps upload with the signal I get. Whoa.

Be happy you have 15....I'm stuck on 6mbit.

I was told by a tech today Optic isn't even going to be in my City until 2014.

OK with upload speeds like that you have my interest as with cloud computing comes a requirement of upload speeds. When will this be available in SE Calgary?

I'll be calling Telus today and see how much to replace my Shaw stuff as that is killer performance.

i havent found a way to max out the 50 Mb connection yet. The highest I have hit (other than speed tests which is 51 mb) is 45 Mb.

This is just awesome speed.

Well i keep trying to get either 25mbps or 50mbps.. last agent said 50mbps was available to me then all of a sudden came back and said sorry no ports are available... i have been stuck on 15mbps for 2-3 years almost.

Oh to have a loop length less than ~600m and to be on 24 Ga. cable! The next time I buy a place I'm going to do it based the shortest possible cable distance from the RDAC or the availability of GPON in the neighbourhood

Got 50Mb installed 4 days ago, the first day I was hitting 50Mb as advertised from Usenet and a few torrents but things have gradually started to peek at the old 25Mb cap, but i'm still hitting 10Mb upload.

I wasn't sure if there was a problem or not, but I hit up the live chat and they are sending out a tech tomorrow morning to switch me over from the V1000H to the V2000. From reading around, it's not really necessary, so who knows what will happen. I have just the Internet from Telus, no TV or phone.

The wireless on the Actiontech is quite poor. I routinely get less than 20mb/s even though when wired I get 52mb/s and I'm roughly 15 ft away on the same level. Traditionally ISP's send out shitty hardware that's why I'm wondering if Telus might bite itself in the foot when 50 roles out to everyone as they may get a lot of complaints that the Actiontech isn't able to deliver anywhere near 50 wirelessly.

TELUS (and no other ISP) will guarantee full speeds on wireless.

Highest I've gotten on the Actiontech (2.4GHz, 40MHz bandwidth) was 38Mb/s. 20MHz I'd get around 29Mb/s.

On my Netgear WNDR4000 (5GHz, 3x3 MIMO) WLAN transfers go at around 15MB/s (big B,) so I'm getting around 120-ish Mb/s. On a Speedtest, I'll get around 53Mb/s from TELUS.

So let's say TELUS offered 200Mb/s internet service (ignore that I'm not on GPON, sadly ETTS would cap at 100Mb/s) and even with my 5GHz wireless, I couldn't get the max speed wirelessly. And I can't hold TELUS responsible for that.

Actually, you can. If Telus forces you to use their all in one router with wireless then it should have high enough quality hardware parts to support the speeds it offers. Sadly, they send out a router that's not able to support the 50 profile wirelessly.
