WarwickNet is first provider to deploy vectoring in UK

WarwickNet continues to surprise with the announcement today that they have deployed vectoring on sub-LLU FTTC connections.

2015 has been a great year for us and our new vectoring capability really cements this. Customers who use this technology will see a vast improvement, meaning that other providers in the area really won’t be able to compete on the same level.

We’re already beginning to introduce vectoring at sites in Berkshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, and we will be doing so on every site we work on going forward."

Ben King, chief executive officer at WarwickNet

Vectoring uses advanced mathematics and analysis of noise conditions to eliminate as much as possible the speed loss caused by high frequency cross talk from other VDSL2 lines in the same bundle. This means those that who have seen speeds drop as more people join will get back those speeds and WarwickNet is saying this will allow them to sell up to 100 Mbps download speeds and up to 40 Mbps uploads.


Some real world test results on long and short lines would be good at some point!

As they provide symmetric products that are faster too e.g. it is harder to spot lines benefiting from vectoring.

This isn't that new. A couple of months ago there was a video on an Openreach presentation about where it was stated that vectoring was essential for that. The rep from WarwickNet said they were already using vectoring, and what was the possibility of the (mooted) inter-cabinet vectoring allowing multiple DSL operators to work together. Apparently this is almost certainly never going to happen due to technical issues and supplier support.
Anyway, the bit of information I gleaned was that WarickNet were using vectoring on their cabinets.
