Hey guys,

Are you able to max out your VDSL on big pipe?

DLM has finished its thing on my line and it now happily syncing at 61Mbits :). But I have been unable to max out my line, the best I have seen is a short spike up to 45Mbit and averaging  20 - 30Mbit.

I have been trying a range of servers for speedtest as well as linux iso etc.

61Mbps!  Impressive.  You must live next door to the cabinet  :D

We don't have any congestion at international or national backhaul, (I can max my line just fine, although I'm only syncing around 45Mbps)  so I'm wondering whether your exchange is maybe congested.  Whereabouts do you live?

If you haven't already, may be worth checking off-peak to see if that has any impact -  Traffic tends to be lowest at 5-6am.

I assume you are doing the right thing and checking over ethernet, not wifi, and also don't have anything else running in the background like icloud, software updates etc?

Yeah its ~100m down the road :) In St Albans, Christchurch. Cab: CH - CH/J

I will try that speed test hio77 suggested.
I have tried from http://ucmirror.canterbury.ac.nz/linux/ and http://mirror.xnet.co.nz  but  will try again tomorrow morning.

Yeah ethernet to the modem also rewired the house as the phone line  was daisy chained to 6 sockets...
