New G.INP trial on ECI cabinets by BTOR requires ISP to opt in

Can someone please find out if/when TT will opt in to the trial of G.INP on ECI cabinets?

 

I live in Thanet and more or less the whole Thanet area has ECI cabinets and so users in this area will be hoping that TT does indeed opt in. Some years ago when G.INP was first enabled many of us had it working flawlessly and we were upset when BTOR removed it.

My ECI line has had G.INP enabled this morning. Not sure if this is because of the trail or whether they are now rolling it out to the whole ECI estate but good news anyway.

Just wanted to say that the trial has started and so far the only ISP involved that I'm aware of seems to be Plusnet where at least some of their users have no got G.INP on their lines and it is showing promise. Would have been good if TT had been involved as anyone on ECI cabinets have been treated as poor relations as their lines never show the speeds available on Huawei cabinets.

 

Lets hope it all goes well and gets a full roll out.

Chris thanks for the update and the PM.

 

I understand that at present you have no information on any possible trial.

Hi Stuart,

 

Thanks for you PM. Apologies for the delay, I'm sorry but at the moment we have no information about the G.IMP trial but if we do receive any information we'll let you know

I did misunderstand the OP's post about what was removed, my bad.

I submitted that topic 3 days ago it has nothing to do with today's discussion. You removed my posts today because you deemed it offensive which I guess is your prerogative as a community mod however, my concern is not that my post was removed but that you seem unable to differentiate between topics submitted 3 days ago and posts done 3 hours ago? I would appreciate your thoughts….

By the time I found the ISPReview article someone else had added it which subsequently got removed which is why I put it back!

@davey Your post was not a support topic. This one has asked a question of TalkTalk. All I said is it would have been helpful had the OP posted a link in the first place. Can we leave it now for an OCE response please?

@broadstairsthank you sir....

 

@ferguson the link disappeared along with my post...😛

Message 13 of 23

Thanks, it would have been helpful had you done so in the first place.

 

Like I said, the OCE will clarify TalkTalk's position when they are back online tomorrow.

For clarity I am adding back a link to the ISPReview article which explains how this became public knowledge, although I originally read about on the Kitz forum.

Not remarkable at all. Read the community guidelines. Any off-topic trolling and/or personal remarks will continue to be removed.

I am sure the OCE will offer any information they have on this project, or not as the case may be, when they pick up on this topic.

Well I for one would be very happy for my circuit to be included, when it was live last time my line ran superbly at 70+mbps and was very unhappy to see it removed from everyone. Been interleaved for years now with no valid explanation from either TT or BTOR. I'd love to check it out this time to  make sure they've not fouled it up (quite possible).

Opt-in may be a statement that is slightly open to interpretation.

 

My understanding is the BTOR will be asking ISPs to "volunteer" circuits on the "test" cabinets. So specific cabinet level testing rather than the "global" testing they did the last time they tried to introduce this feature, so a very much more cautious approach.

 

But all very much wait and see time.
