Topic # 138795 16-Jan-2014 20:11 Send private message

I have this week been connected to the new Orcon VDSL service. Had a great Chorus tech install - very easy and clean. Tested with Chorus provisioning when first plugged in at 47 Mb download and 10Mb upload. I am 3 days into the provisioning period (DLM, etc) amd I am very happy with the line rate the modem sees (improved to 50mbps down, 10mbps up). However, when I do a Speedtest with the Orcon site I am only seeing 28mbps download (but I am seeing close to 10mbps upload).
So I am a bit confused as to why I can see the 10 upload but not close to the 50mb download. Orcon Tier 1 tells me that the DLM / DSLAM will adjust the rate over the provisioning period if the line will support it.
But why can't I have close to the download rate that the modem can see? Is this just about how the DLM is programmed? Am I being greedy? Or will it improve?
Have the latest snapshot of the x-dsl stats page from my Netcomm modem below.



I am testing directly connected to the modem using ethernet cable from an Nvidia N-Force Gigabit onboard network adapter. But my wireless devices give the same download result. If anyone could comment for me that would be great. Especially if there is something you think I could check or test to improve it. 

Regards,
Bruizer

This issue has nothing to do with VDSL or DLM. For some reason Bruiser has been provisioned incorrectly on our BNG equipment and has been placed on a ADSL Profile.

We will resolve this first thing in the morning. He should easily get his line speed from local sites.
