So a guy from Chorus has been down at our local cabinet for the RBI upgrade.
I was getting a not too terrible 6.5 mbps (out in rural part of kapiti)
and suddenly today there was a broadband outage and I rebooted my router and its now synced at 16513 kbit :)

the line attenuation has gone down from i think about 30 to now 10 dB down and 6 dB up... 

Just wondered if this sounds like it would be good enough for VDSL? I spoke to a tech a while back who said we might be able to get VDSL out here after the cabinet upgrade if the signal was good enough...

heres my current sync stats:

Line standard                                ADSL2+
Channel type                                Interleaved 
Downstream line rate (kbit/s)         16513
Upstream line rate (kbit/s)             989
Downstream SNR (dB)                   12.1
Upstream SNR (dB)                       12.8
Downstream line attenuation (dB)   10
Upstream line attenuation (dB)       5.9
Downstream output power (dBmV) 18.8
Upstream output power (dBmV)      12.1
Downstream CRC                           0
Upstream CRC                               0
Downstream FEC                            0
Upstream FEC                                0

looks good, providing the cabinet is vdsl capable looks like it "could" work, once one of the recognised staff here chime in, should PM them your address to get a manual prequalification check done, cos i know the auto one will still say no, with it being so recently upgraded

Should be. I've got a rural customer off an RBI cabinet getting 30/10 VDSL connection.




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?

That would be perfect - its just the upload that I am mostly concerned about - for dropbox/flickr etc.

As I found out personally, rural connections are a bit more tolerant for VDSL, you stats are pretty good so I'd say it should be possible, I get around 26/8 on a connection that on a line worse than that.

yep, looking at your modem stats, your set for vdsl!


your biggest issue will be electric fences along the way, if your aiming for upload though, absolutely a good move to make.


generally rural lines have less crosstalk, so that helps a bit with vdsl too :)
