Hello geeks, as subject describe is it worth to switch to VDSL2 when Telecom start to offer the service? Here's my line information:



By the way, I have another 2 partially unrelated question:

1- I also wondering whether my line attenuation rate are acceptable for the speed I have at the moment which shown in the picture above? Because I notice recently my connection speed getting slower and slower, and drop off also occur occasionally, does it has something to do with the stat above? 

2- can anyone tell me how close is my local Exchange/Cabinet judging from my line attenuation rate?

Cheers :)

Edit 1: Just to clear thing up, I've check Chorus's Service Availability map and shown that my area does support ADSL2+ and VDSL2.

Should be close. The old cut-off was 10.5dB but that seems to be have thrown out the window. You may not get the 50Mbps sync rate but maybe somewhere around 30ish. In any case though your upstream will approve significantly so that might be a big plus for you.

Edit: Get a splitter installed. Yes it will cost around $200, but it will improve your sync rate and line stability.

12.5 dB is 905 meters from exchange/cabinet and should sync at 20+ Mbps.




Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone 6s, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then its data cabled.

You will also need to factor in a master splitter if you don't have one already.

Master filter? What is that? Can I DIY it?

Sorry for hijacking this thread, but I've always wanted to ask...would my line be okay for VDSL2?
These are the line stats on my Netcomm modem (I think I'm about 600m from the exchange):

Line Mode ADSL2+ Line State Show Time
Line Power State L0 Line Up Time 00:05:10:55
Line Coding Trellis On Line Up Count 1

Statistics Downstream Upstream
Line Rate 15038 Kbps 997 Kbps
Attainable Line Rate 18176 Kbps 997 Kbps
Noise Margin 12.0 dB 12.8 dB
Line Attenuation 19.0 dB 12.5 dB
Output Power 18.8 dBm 12.4 dBm

Unless you have a master filter installed posting stats is almost pointless.

If you want to know if you can get VDSL2 look at the Chorus SAT page or ring your ISP and ask for a prequal to be done on your address.
