Cameron1991: I'm getting a few errors but I am unsure if they are within acceptable limits or not.


Looks pretty good to me, I was getting a few thousand errors in a day at 67mbps, but since it dropped back its right down to about what you see.

I've only been on this profile for about 8 hours so errors might still stack up later and I could get dropped back to the 67mbps or so that I was on yesterday.

I just had my ADSL2 upgraded to VDSL and I'm a bit disappointed so far. 

Could I have some feedback about my new connection?

Quick notes:

* I'm located around 400-500 metres from the local cabinet.
* Speed tests are over ethernet
* Modem is plugged directly into the master socket at the entry point to the house (no internal wiring to go through)
* Telecom VSDL modem has been factory reset

My ADSL2 connection was pretty fast. I captured stats from this morning before the VDSL install:

Bandwidth (Up/Down) [kbps/kbps]: 1,080 / 18.339
Output Power (Up/Down) [dBm]: 12.6 / 0.0
Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]: 3.8 / 15.5
SN Margin (Up/Down) [dB]: 12.6 / 12.1

I would routinely get 1.6Mb/s on downloads.

Telecom speed test site at 8am this morning:



After the VDSL install I'm now getting:

Bandwidth (Up/Down) [kbps/kbps]: 6,247 / 24,468
Output Power (Up/Down) [dBm]: 7.8 / 13.5
Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]: 43.4 / 17.7
SN Margin (Up/Down) [dB]: 11.9 / 12.2

Telecom speed test results are:




I had been expected a much larger initial jump in download / upload speeds. I realise I still have the 10 day adjustment period to go through but I'm guessing that I shouldn't expect a significant increase over what I'm already seeing now?

Is the distance from the cabinet the most likely cause for the lower than expected speed increase?

If anyone has suggestions that might result in additional boost in download / upload speeds I'd appreciate it.

Thank you!

Your downstream attenuation is, imo, higher than I would expect for 400m - 500m, it looks almost double that to me, which would be borderline VDSL connectivity. But maybe some of the Telecom or Chorus types here can clarify. Other than that, assuming your VDSL modem is hanging right off the splitter, not much else to do unless there's a fault on the line somewhere.

Installed my VDSL today without any hassles. Dude was a top bloke.

Had to get back to work so only had 2 mins to give it a test.

Modem sync was 40/10
Speedtest was 22/0.8

Looks promising

Hmmm. Yes - I found the distance calculator and it seems to indicate that too   It may well be that the cabinet I was told is the local Telecom cabinet is in fact not the right one.  The one I'm thinking of (cnr of Landsdowne Terrace and Centaurus Road) is definitely only 500m away max. 

Is there any way to look up the local cabinet based on address? 

Is it unusual for my upstream attenuation to jump from 3.8 (ADSL2+) to 43.3 (VDSL)?

Thanks again!

that's impressive. I just had vdsl installed 1 hour ago. Chorus advised I was getting 31 down and 10 up which is fine by me. However, now I get a message saying "Technicolor Tg589vn v2 network error". I rang telecom and was told that the job hadnt been completed and it could take 24 hours before im back on the internet. It was working. Is there something I'm supposed to be doing my end? .Im wired not wireless and im getting a solid broadband light on modem.

Any advice gratefully recieved.

Strange. I just checked and the above cabinet is the Chorus cabinet and is definitely no more than 500m away according to Google Maps.  :(

So I ordered VDSL in the weekend after getting confirmation from Michael that VDSL was available at my address. Modem arrived today but then a few hours later I got a call saying we could not get connected to VDSL and telecom does not know when we can, the girl said Chorus said the equipment was not installed in the exchange, the exchange being the Nelson exchange surprised me as is not that small.

Anyone able to shed some light on what they are talking about?

You can try doing a hard reset of the modem every couple of hours until you are connected.  It solved my problem, but I only knew it after I was offline for 48 hours (it was a very very long 48 hours)  =-)
