obviously i dont know anything/...
why on earth do i work for for who i do, i think i better put in my notice as someone on a forum thinks they know how everything works..
how silly of me, to think my job for an isp woudl give me any insite to thsi topic..
i think you are actualy quackers.
isp's in uk , and everywhere else that networks are used in any way or form do suffer from overloading, but that is not overselling, its from under
estimating the bandwith needs of that area. its practicly impossible to over provide an exchange in the physical sence, as their only so much room ,
and once all the ports ect are fill their litrely is no more space in that exchange untill they install more racks ... this is different from over
selling, its caused by under estimating needs. ... this is where im stopping, as this topic can get so bloody complex that i would be here
explaining for you all evening explaining how an eu's connection to the internet works, but i have a life and your going to disagree anyway as "you
know better" ..
rack space in exchanges is a small part., but also as impostant is the type of adsl used (for instance, g.dmt/adsl/adsl2), the quality of lines
installed connecting the eu to their pcp/dp/exchange (see aluminium cables).
and most importantly, go reaserch physics, as thats what most of the speed issues in uk broadband come down to .. mainly, the term attenuation.!
i suggest you like, speak to people actualy working in broadband and not the ofcom website which is nothign but an independant body who deals with
complaints, you will never hear anything good from them as its not what their paid to do!"
(id also like to say, im immensly dumbing this down here, i am not going into tech details ect, as i could litrely be here all night typing and i have
