Re: Shaw Fibre for Residential Customers?

said by 20424689:

if your getting 18-20 it's not after QOS. the only people who get 18-20 are not QOS'd

the non QOS speeds on telus 50 is

70/18

you will most likely have your speeds drop to 53/12 in the next couple months.......

Telus 50 is actually syncd at around 76/12
source: I actually have it.

FTTH may be different, he may be right. This thread is full of know-it-alls who don't know much-at-all.

FTTH is definitely different.

And just so everyone knows, at my old place I was also on Telus Fibre, for over a year, on Internet 50, and received the same speeds of 18-20mbps upload the entire time. So I don't suspect it will change especially if it's been the same for me the past year.

Source: Actually having and used the service for over a year.

Either way, thanks for the concern, I know we're all just trying to get fast-er upload speeds here

What's needed for highest tier upload if you don't mind me asking?

I do a lot of design/video work that requires my files to be uploaded to cloud storage for others to work with and send back.

Fibre has definitely been a HUGE improvement, I use to be working with 2.5mbps upload where I'd just leave everything to upload overnight when I went to sleep.

LOL I'm just picturing 4k video editing and streaming......gigabit FTTH will become a requirement.

Some areas are in Phase 2 of the DNU but have put the project on hold in every other area for now other than Vancouver/Victoria/Calgary/Edmonton/Airdrie-AB.

Not completely true!!!

I have had BB250 in Medicine Hat (On the Hill) since March 2012. Some areas in the city do not have it such as the flats. I am a few (10-12) blocks away from my work in the flats. We asked about BB250 and we're told the budget has run out and indefinitely. Locations around Medicine Hat and also Lethbridge can get BB250.

and where are the line sync stats to accompany that?

not my speedtest but FTTH doesn't show line sync.

we just get a ethernet connection from the the Alcatel Lucent modem that usually goes into the actiontec's WAN port if you have optik tv or you can use your own router if not.

Your gateway does though.

Curious, because I don't have experience in this, what are you expecting to see for a line sync rate? 1000 down 1000 up?

I expect true ftth to be symmetrical, anything else is a bunch of garbage!

You mean the Alcatel modem? No idea how to access that. When I plug my laptop into that all I get is a Public IP Address from Telus.

It's a Alcatel-Lucent 7342 if that helps (at least I think it is, looks exactly the same).

Sorry. Didn't comprehend the FTTH at 3:52am. Still thinking he was on bonded twisted pair 50 with the ActionTek gateway. That displays sync stats that Darhole would have liked to see.

Can I ask why?

The networks aren't typically designed to be symmetrical:
G.984 (GPON) = 2.488 gbps down / 1.244 gbps up
G.987 (10G-PON) = 9.95328 Gbit/s downstream / 2.48832 Gbit/s upstream
EPON (IEEE 802.3ah-2004) = Symmetric 1 Gbit/s
10G-EPON (IEEE 802.3av) = 10 Gbit/s down / 1 Gbit/s up

Only one out of four common PON standards is symmetrical, meaning symmetrical plans waste downstream bandwidth.

Interestingly EPON standards allow the running of 802.3ah and 802.3av concurrently, for a 10G down wavelength, a 1G down wavelength, and a shared 1G up wavelength.

Also Interesting: while DOCSIS provisioning of EPON already existed, now some folks are selling DOCSIS provisioning of GPON.

they used to show 1gbps down and 50mbps up but now it seems to be gone. while highly unlikely its possible 250 is the highest package they are offering on fiber now

ps the telus is only 50/10 with QOS applied. the most i have seen before QOS is 70/18.

Actually, the upload speed for 50 is 15 and the upload speed for 100 is 25. If you have Optik TV, you'll typically find the up and down speeds to be about 2 mbits higher as well.

Sorry, you are wrong on the speeds.

50/10. Normal tests are usually around 52/12.
100/20. Tests are around 105/26. This product is in QC, so doesn't apply to western canada where most of us are.

Are you talking VDSL or FTTH? I have Telus FTTH in AB and I get 53/17. And you can get 100/20 in AB+BC if you have FTTH and are on the CE network, it's not just QC.

I don't know what I was thinking, completely forgot about edge in the west. Thanks
The advertised upload values are still 10 and 20 respectively.

there is a special fibre site that tells you if you are eligble for FTTH (problem is alot of the people eligble don't show on this tool)
from there you confirm you are on converged edge with them, then 100 is available.

I haven't seen 100 anywhere on their website except in QC
