Jase2985: How long should i expect to wait to see a change in profile?


24 hours at most. Most the time it will take less than 4.

10 days...
Anything that happens within that time is out of everyone's control.

From memory mine changed on day 3/4 and then every day or 2 after that, but everyone's experience will vary.

Do you mean you speeds are the same as your ADSL stats or the same as the VDSL speeds when it was installed.

10 days is the period of time DLM takes to decide on the speed profile that best suits your line. During this time you may notice speed variations.

 

You should notice the initial speed gain within 24 hours of your install.

The last line has confused in it all because you are talking about the speed increase from ADSL to VDSL there? it was changed to VDSL prior to it even connecting with the new modem.

The modem is still saying the same connected speeds as when it was first connected and my figures from the telnet session are still the same. Ditto on the speed test results. see the first result a few posts up.

The modem has been up since the time of the install with no disconnections or restarts.

You seem to be talking about your DLM profile. In this case it will be 10 days for the DLM profile to adjust to its final speed.

For those of you that have gone ahead with the VDSL install what the quality/workmanship like? Does the Telecom tech just run a cable along the skirting board or is it dropped down inside the wall with a nice flush box?

I've begun the process of running structured cabling back to a central location and would like the keep the quality of the install high, happy to spend some money on someone else if needed. $99 seems like a pretty good deal (too good to be true?) for a master splitter installation.

You wont see it changing profiles likely. You may see minor speed changes over this period though

This depends entirely on which Chorus tech (Telecom don't send a tech themselves) you get, and how they're feeling compared to how easy it is to do it nicely given accessibility in your home. I've seen some very tidy installs, and some very poor ones. If you're there with them 'guiding' them you seem to get better results. If you're adamant you need a really clean install, though, I'd honestly sort it yourself beforehand.

K1w1G33k: So here was my old ADSL2+ speeds:


And today I have this on VDSL2:





Not sure why my upload is still low though, router page says I'm connected at 10,360kbps up and 24,576kbps down.

Any thoughts as to the only slightly higher increase in upload speed anyone? Profile tuning perhaps?



i suspect your on a VDSL2 port but not a VDSL2 profile at telecoms end.


Ah now that makes sense with the speed I'm getting. I'll email PL for some assistance :)


This is likely right. Profile takes a few hours to switch and during that time you max out your ADSL stats like this. Once the profile is updated you'll see your actual speeds :)


I checked it at lunch which is almost 24 hours after the install was done, and still at the same speeds at the moment.


May pay to call in and ask them to make sure the Tech called for the profile change, or PM me details and I'll look into it


That's looking better now! :D Thank you PL and Yyrael for helping me out here :)





Day 4, getting slightly better...



Rolling up to day 6...

I agree there, the 2 i got were pretty amaturish and needed guiding and were not happy about having to get under the house to run the cable.

I already had a master filter with a splitter box (all cables were labled) near the ETP and they just had to change the filter and run about 5m of cat5 under the house to where the modem is (behind the TV). This took them 2.5h and they forgot to hook the alarm back up, lucky i checked before they had gone so they fixed that up. Realistically it was a 45min job for one person.

They got there in the end and it was a good job, just alot of mucking around.

Thanks for the responses, I think I'll mount the flush box and draw the cable mysel . Then its simply a matter of installing the splitter and connecting each end of the cable.
