:sure, here it is my translation
Since yesterday they activated Infostrada fiber link and I'd like to share some info.
As a premise, I had active an ADSL link from the same company (20Mbps download in theory, 12Mbps real at its best, 4-7Mbps as an every day experience. better not to consider the upload values since they were really pathetic).
A positive surprise was that they installed the fiber cable in my house (FTTH). However they made two junctions. First one because they estimated not to have enough cable to reach the adaptor (it would have sufficed if they tried, although for centimeters) and second one due to "tech instruction" by their company.
So, instead of using a connector at the cable end, they use a patch cord, more or less economic, so that the needed connector is already in place and tested. This is the cause of the second useless junction at 30cm from the end.
An informal speed test showed values of 150Mbps, then 130Mbps (after a couple of hours) and this morning it dropped to 100Mbps. Upload stable at about 50% of current download speed.
Considering that the monthly cost is the same as what I paid for the ADSL service, I find uselesse to discuss about the reason why they advertise 1Gbps when they are unable to deliver more the 10% of it (risking legal actions, although they know they're in Italy...)
What should be of very high consideration is modem/router configuration. Most of the options available in the GUI were disabled, showing valued set by Wind.
Among those, and I find it incredible, there were the settings about router's IP address and DHCP configuration.
About the latter, it made me wonder with terrible suspects. Router address is 192.168.1.254, DHCP goes from .2 to .253; what they do of address 192.168.1.1?
Could they use it as an internal redirector so to sniff all my data traffic? Or are they willing to penetrate my LAN thanks to that IP?
As a first "security" measure I linked my beloved FritzBox in cascading to their modem, leaving all my appliances on the FritzBox. This way, my LAN is programmed as I like it and so it is for the WLAN.
They, if so they like, can now sniff data traffic limited to that single port but surely can't be part of my LAN and peek at my devices.
To use an increased speed experience I could move to their router a Playstation and a very old PC (almost no data on it) used just for browsing on no relevance websites, no banks or email accounts or any other account in general.
ps: it seems we are not even free to buy our own modem/router and use it.. and they said that a centralized control is done in China!
: as posted later, most of the above is now solved, but I believe you're interesed more in the double junction paragraph. PM me if you like further details.
