A website staff member at thinkbroadband forums says I'm a liar when I state I run my own websites, here it is one of them anyway! Your own personal website is mickey mouse with no security certificate and one of the email server at thinkbroadband is misconfigured with invalid SPF, DMARC and DKIM causing backscatter of which they've been blacklisted. And anyone who says that a 212Mbps/40Mbps connection needs to be used for gaming only to be serious is out their bloody head! And a Gbps for a website that sees low traffic is silly, and saying it needs to be hosted in a data centre is just pointless when keeping the cost down.

No messages before it about passing a DKIM test.
2019-07-06 08:53:58 H=(forums.thinkbroadband.com) [80.249.99.75] X=TLS1.2:DHE_RSA_AES_128_CBC_SHA1:128 CV=no F=<forums@thinkbroadband.com> temporarily rejected RCPT <xxxxxx>: Temporary DNS error while checking SPF record. Try again later.

Seems thinkbroadband are not interested in the IP address for the email SMTP server which would have helped in taking it out of service whilst it is fixed.

The forum's website has the worst threading reply structures I've ever seen and the forum is absolutely full of trolls! So-called professionals!

An important measurement of the broadband working correctly is latency and G.fast would be in the category when opening a thread with 'anyone on G.fast', yep I do! I've been blocked from replying to the thread. Some other community member says you should have it in a data centre for patches, haven't you heard of unattended patching in Ubuntu! Bloody idiots and I do not recommend the site for accurate information for it is a hostile environment.

And this is my day's moan. :mrgreen:

A comment by a staff member 'that G.fast traffic speeds cannot be shaped it's impossible.' That is not the case but a nonsense statement that you have made up! Get the details right!

"Shaping equally applies upstream and CPs should shape to the product rate or maximum attainable rate as discussed for downstream shaping, (see section 2.1.7 Intermediate Agent/DHCP Relay Agent). In addition, CPs should consider the impact of upstream capacity on their GEA-NGA2 G.fast Cablelink."

Quoted from document https://www.btplc.com/SINet/sins/pdf/STIN520v2p0.pdf

"Traditional DSL adopts frequency division duplex (FDD), whereas G.fast adopts TDD. TDD empowers greater spectral efficiency and a more flexible upstream/downstream bandwidth ratio, meeting symmetric access requirements of enterprise users as well as asymmetric access requirements of home users."

This is the proof on a downstream/upstream speed test that shaping can be done on BT's Openreach network for G.fast speed test was done over wireless. Thank you BT Openreach & Zen Internet Ltd I'm absolutely delighted with upstream speed. :D
