You will need to have your home wiring checked. Talk to CoffeeBaron as suggested.

michaelmurfy: Pay CoffeeBaron $150 and get him to fix up your line like a baus. It is well worth it seeing you've got unlimited fast broadband now (once the wiring is fixed) then you can get away from using those line filters which will be hindering performance. That way since you're in a VDSL area (or so you say) you'll be able to flick the switch to get VDSL and reallllly get some decent speeds (all dependant on how far you are from the cabinet/exchange)


Will definitely contact him today, this is my speedtest this morning, ouch




Something sure is up there. Some of the copper in your area is not the best, but certainly not that bad either. I'll wait for you to get in touch if you would like me to check and sort your wiring.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
