Im on the Telecom ADSL 500GB plan (Fiber is still not available in Swanson yet!) in the last couple of weeks the internet keeps getting disconnected constantly and my modem reconnects automatically but now its getting annoying as it keeps happening and disrupts our work.

Has anyone else experiencing the same issues?

Also I saw Telecom now offering unlimited data is it something to do with these heavy users affecting the network as how it did with Go Large (Go Slow)?

It's probably your modem. What model do you have?

I have two modems and they both disconnect

Sometimes the internet doesnt disconnet for a long time and then all of a sudden it starts dropping!

sounds like a line fault, or the modem dying. ima take a punt here and say your dlink is a 502T or a G604T, in which case the dying is more likely.


loosing DSL sync is defiantly unrelated to telecoms unlimited plan.


have you lodged a fault with telecom?

line fault, as in your physical line having a fault.

HG556A failing too, would indicate a fault over a device failure.


not sure how rurally your looking in swanson, but thoses 604Ts are pretty nice on longer lines.


try an isolation test, see if it shows an improvement and work from there.

Email me "pl at telecom.co.nz" and I can do a line test... sounds like you have an internal wiring issue.

Thank you PL I will now be switching to VDSL sometime by next week and will be getting a new modem.

Just wondering is the modem WIFI enabled from Telecom for the VDSL connection and also I will be moving from 500GB to unlimited plan so is this plan throttled and will I experience lower speeds in peak times etc...
