Hey Merve04, at a quick glance, it looks like you're on bonded service (two phone lines carrying half the service) so one would think each line has to be at least 50 Mbps sync rate to get 100 Mbps. MTS in MB, the VDSL2 syncs is 35 for everyone except 50 meg internet customers (which are rare in residential). The two lower tiers here are 25 & 10. We can't get 100 on copper that I'm aware of.

Now keep in mind, it looks like your SNR margins are at the bare minimum. I usually see 8, but 6 will work. The higher the better (up to 25-ish) Anyway, the modem auto syncs to whatever gives the best SNR & lowest errors, unless it's manually overriden.

I'm guessing they're running their service on the bleeding edge at 100. Copper is only capable of so much. That's my take on it :)

Shaw does 250mbps on copper. Inside my house I'm running 1Gbps on copper.

The bandwidth can go up on copper the more twisted pairs that are added to the configuration.

Shaw is HFC on coax though, isn't it? Different technologies. They use DOCSIS 3 I believe. In some ways I think it is similar, in that at some point, customers share a fibre signal. But I hear that cable suffers slow downs the more people on the node.

Now, I don't know if DSL doesn't get similar slow downs because there are fewer people per node or what? I don't want to stray off topic though.

I've never heard of residential DSL ever using more than 2 pairs. Would be interested to see how it's done.

Seems like everyone with Bonded 100 are stuck just under 95Mbps.

How far from the sac box are you guys with the bonded 100 meg service?
I'm a block away, UG service (no bridge tap), a tech told me I can get 100 without bonding, I've read a few threads here and not seen anyone getting 100 without bonding, anyone heard of it?

Looking at my V1000 status I'm seeing:
Downstream Rate: 56351Kbps
Upstream Rate: 7167Kbps

I'm only on the 15 meg plan but usage this month is 270 gig over my 150 gig max so I need to do something, the 100meg service would give me 500 gig a month. My son is a gamer, will the higher latency of the bonded pairs be an issue for him?

@Fisherguy, why don't you try the 50 instead and see if you get close to it without bonding? Cap is 400 GB right?

Here in Manitoba, the highest MTS offers on copper is 50. I've heard they only do bonding if it's over 400 meters from the dslam. Keep in mind birds eye view isn't always the same path as the copper. I'm on buried service, and I can see the box maybe 300m away, but I found out it goes past me and comes back around, and I'm fed out of the last terminal, 990m on 26 gauge :( I'll be interested to see if they ever roll out anything faster on copper since other companies are offering it. I don't know what Telus is doing different. They're both xDSL based :confused:

They told me that even though my line looked like it could attain 100mbps on a single pair, they wouldn't do it. Less issues bonding two at a lower rate, and I guess it would cause less confusion in the future if I were to run into problems.. Very happy with it though. The DSLAM is next door to me.

Glad they fixed the downstream rate too. I like the extra 10mbps..

im with shaw now pay for bb 120 and actual speeds are 140 im switching to telus fiber 100 they dont offer the 150 plan in my neiberhood yet I know fiber is better and capable of way faster than this they could easily do gigabit internet heck forget gigabit terabit internet is possible there has been a network made with fiber that does 255 terrabits per seccond with fiber we dont know the limits the routers and switches aka the hardware is the limiting factor with fiber networks

Sorry for the late reply, but it's rock solid just as the single line 50, 25, and 15 before that. I have zero reason to complain about my internet service.
