I'm flatting now, and even though I am much closer to the cabnet (700m according to Chorus tech) my sync speeds barly hit 12000kb/s rather than what I expected (being the high 20000kb/s mark) I'm in a VDSL2 zone, which I assumed would be the better place to be since only people close enough to the cabnet can get VDSL2 and that ADSL 2+ would be all the better in that particular zone,is that correct?
Foregive me for my lack of understanding or use of terms, I'm a total noob to this stuff, but very interested in how it all works and what I can do to improve what I have. Here are my line stats at the flat (former state house by the way)
Traffic Type: ATM
Link Power State:L0
Line Coding(Trellis): On / On
SNR Margin (0.1 dB): 129 / 160
Attenuation (0.1 dB): 90 / 41
Output Power (0.1 dBm): 0 / 128
Attainable Rate (Kbps):14344 / 992
EDIT: Had it all in a nice grid that dissapeared when I submitted the thread. :|
Am I to understand that the attenuation the router is reporting is rediculously high? And the SNR margin is destroying my sync rate? Just a note...My router is not connected to the master socket. Would that improve things at all?
Would having a dedicated ADSL socket (like at my old house) improve sync rate and line attenuation? Or would I be wasting my money and the Chrous's time getting him out?
I also read something about removing a "Bell wire" or something which apparently increases your sync rate. I'm not sure if that applies in New Zealand however.
If there is something I can do to make it better, I want to at least look in to it to see if I will gain better over-all service. I miss my 2.3MB/s. I'm at just under half that right now.
I'm also aware the problem could be totally outside my control.
Thanks guys! :)
