I've found a lot of information of good information on here. Now I find myself just going around in cricles and I don't trust Telecom to continue asking them questions.
I'm trying to establish whether I can receive ADSL2+ speeds or not. I've had 2 yes's and 2 no's from Telecom.
I've been told I connect to my exchange directly to receive ADSL2+( i seem to be in an areas of Lower Hutt which won't have it's cabinet upgraded (LHT/AB)). Telecom has said I live too far from the exchange to benefit from ADSL2+ speeds. So I rang 123 for a line check and was told I have 19db attenuation on my line, which theoritically can get 10Mb down and 1Mb up. AFter doing some reading it seems as though 19db would be within the 2km required to get ADSL2+ speeds.
After informing Telecom of this, they said I would not get ADSL2+ speeds as other people in my street get 5Mb down.
I'm a complete noob when it comes to this stuf, and it seems I'm getting contradictory info from Telecom, I'm very confused. My ISP is Slingshot, which I'll probably move from.
I'd really appreciate a explanation which makes sense. As expected Telecom just take the corporate line, but I just want to know what I'm missing here.
