the vdsl connection goes over the same DSLAM regardless of the ISP.

your issue is almost certainly iver a dud box, or a miss configuration.

Thanks everyone for offering help. We've decided the modem was to blame and have bought a Huawei HG630 Gateway from Telecom. Unfortunately we can't find where to change these settings on this modem. Do anyone know?

VPI: 0
VCI: 110
Mode: VDSL2
PPP Protocol: PPPoE
Encapsulation: 802.1Q
PCP/ QoS Marking: 0
VLAN ID: 10
PPP Username / password

Thanks for any help we're getting desperate.

We got it working in the end. I would recommend using the modem telecom is providing if you are looking to connect to bigpipe. The BigPipe people said that the preconfigured settings on the telecom modem are compatible with the bigpipe network, (essentially its the same network) all what you have to do is plug it in and it starts working. The reason it took us awhile to get going as the technician opened up a port and BigPipe had to configure something on their end before the DSL signal could be used for an internet connection. Now the VDSL is fluctuating a lot but we should see a solid speed after a 5 days. Thanks guys for all your help and advice

Glad that's all working for you now.

Yes, the Telecom modem is essentially plug and play for Bigpipe VDSL. Pretty good value at $149 too.

The DLM process takes ten days and then your speed should get to a (roughly) steady state. Try and leave your modem on the whole time if you can.
How is the speed looking right now?
