Lower PLC-to-VDSL interference Mode is supported by MIMO powerline adapters only, such as series-8 and series-9. Actually, it will reduce the interference in circuits via disabling MIMO mode, so it may reduce the data transfer rate. Powerline products may interfere with devices such as lighting systems that have a dimmer switch or a touch-sensitive on/off feature, short wave radios, cable television system, VDSL devices, speakers, or other Powerline devices that do not follow the HomePlug AV/AV2 standard.
