Coffeebaron seemed to think it's not possible. Not sure if it was to do with the fact that I'm connected at the exchange quite a distance away or the line stats as posted above. Incidentally, the first image is from a VDSL capable router (DrayTek 2760). The second one is ADSL only (Netgear D6300)

Just having a look at your statistics and they're no worse than my own VDSL connection statistics and I get a pretty good connection:





Laptop: MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
Desktop: iMac (27-inch, 2017)
Smartphone: iPhone XS Max 256GB 'Space Grey'
Additional devices: Unifi Security Gateway, Unifi Switch, Unifi AP AC HD, Unifi Cloud Key
Services: YouTube Premium, Wordpress, Skinny Mobile and Broadband

Was having another look at the maps, and you are off a cabinet, not exchange. So that puts you a lot closer, and stats back this up. The cable seems to do a funny loop around the street behind and appears your line is feed from there rather than the front like house at front of property. This could be just an error in the maps. Definitely worth a try for VDSL now though :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

yeah, i recall this one being confusing on the maps..

regardless, looking at your line stats (however one o your modems there have to be miss reading! thats alot of variation) you should have a pretty reasonable vdsl connection there!


what a jump from 6mbit eh?
