Hi Slingshot, I don't know what you did at the Papatoetoe Exchange the other day, but thanks.
My download speed has gone from 10Mbs to 13Mbs and upload from .88 to 1.0.

Just thought I'd give the thumbs up, as most comments here are in the negative

Cheers

Oh, my bad.
It was Slingshot who sent me the prior notification of disruption to service.
Thanks Chorus

I'd pop over to their Forum, but I believe double posting is frowned upon.

Hope they see this here.

Thanks johnr

Sounds like Slingshot migrated the OP onto ULL gear with a more aggressive noise margin, hence the higher speeds. Less likely that Chorus upgrade resulted in a increase in sync from 10 to 13 meg since both are within the range of ADSL2+, suggesting that he had already been upgraded to 2+.

Afaik Slingshot are working through their customers on wholesale connections from exchanges that have SS ULL gear available, and migrating them over

Slingshot have the most extensive LLU network in the country! Its nice to see some improvement. Now all you need is a router that lets you teak that SNR a little further ;)

Latency has dropped and you want to tweak it?

I only know of a few modems that can tweak things like signal to noise ratio.  The iiNet bob2 and Netgear DG series.
I have a 15Mb/s line at home on a standard modem.  if I decrease the SNR on my netgear modem to 0% I get 17.5Mb/s

Pretty good improvement for a 60 dollar router! :)

Hi johnr, isn't that the point of the UFB rollout, so we can all communicate at light speed ;-)

I was only asking out of curiosity

Latency will only decrease on fibre due to the fact the whole infrastructure is better, rather than the fact it is light speed.  That is how I understand it anyway.

Defiantly sounds your moved onto one of slingshots MSAN.... you can also now change your router to allow ANNEX M this will increase your upload at the expense of some download.... If your looking for faster upload :)

I'm on a MSAN and I get 16/1.1 without ANNEX M 15.3/2.1 with ANNEX M

Hi Nebbie, not sure if it'll make any difference to me although I do use voip, and Skype and my son is a heavy gamer....so maybe.
I get modem reading of 16/1.2 without 14/1.8 with, not a big difference.
I'll leave it on for a while and see what happens

Thanks for your suggestion
