Rate Adaption on BT IPStream S500
Tuesday 06 November 2001 16:53:00 by
BT have today released information confirming rate adaptive IPStreamS500 will be available upto 5.5km. This brings in the facility for those wanting Ethernet to have it at the longer distances away
as is currently possible with USB.
Starting on 10 December 2001 customers greater than 3.5km may find that their upstream bandwidth is limited to as low as 64kbps due to the rate adaption, although USB users under same circumstances
tend to report it not decreasing from the standard 256kbps.
