Re: How soon can we upgrade to Gigabit/Gigabit speeds over DOCSIS 3.1? #Gigaworld #ProjectLightning

It's probably part of this trial in which case they won't be able to - but if they do fair play - but I am sceptical.

I'd have assumed if he was in the trial he wouldn't be able to tell us the speedtest either though.

Beats me.

Have done my own movement bringing an alternate supplier in to augment as my area breaches capacity thresholds for release of Voom 500 so even when it is released it wouldn't be on my segment. 

Did you not purchase the DIA you said you were ordering?

Re: How soon can we upgrade to Gigabit/Gigabit speeds over DOCSIS 3.1? #Gigaworld #ProjectLightning

Still waiting for the survey! - They can't do anything until April 2nd so I keep being told. I am not sure if I should just get a 500 line instead. Although the 300/300 was what I wanted and had assigned some of the budget to. £504 a month is not a lot for what you get - and I know others talk of 1Gbps but that would be too much for us - say we can get 30MB/sec upload that would be more than enough. I am just assuming that VM business does not over provision like res does? If they do then that's even better.

But long term yes 300/300 is what I want to get - a FTTC line will do the office CCTV and stuff - this VM line is purely for CDM

I’d assume business over provision too for the same reason. Residential is only over provisioned so the overheads don’t knock the achieved speed under the headline speed.

If that' so then that's great - I am not sure why i am bothered - they deliver 300/300 then I am sure it will be spot on.

I don't think you will ever see VM offer a 300/300 anytime soon. There's simply not a business case for it.

In years to come, possibly..... but at the moment to get that, you will need their DIA or another suppliers fibre ethernet circuit at a far higher cost than the residential/semi residential connections on here.

Business cable modem overprovisions. Not aware of DIA doing the same - no SamKnows/Ofcom testing on them.

The overprovisioning on cable modem used to be to ensure customers could hit full speeds after overheads but is much higher now so that customers in good areas can offset the minority in overloaded ones.
