Just joined to big pipe VDSL this week. Fibre is not available in my area.
This is a rental property. There is one jack point downstairs and one jack point upstairs. I do not have an alarm, phone line, or any other services that use the connection. I only have my draytek vigor 130 modem plugged into the phone jack. My PC is currently connected directly to the vigor modem.
My VDSL speed test is consistently
17.5 UP / 3.5 DOWN
The townhouse is probably built in the 80s. I assume that the likely reason I won't connect any faster is probably the internal wiring. I'd prefer not to get the rental property rewired, and it maybe pointless with fibre coming in the next 12-24 months anyway.
My question is:
If I changed to ADSL2+ would I likely get a similar speed. VDSL plan (20-60 DOWN) is $89/mo, ADSL plan (5-20 DOWN) is $79/mo. Am I paying $10 extra for no reason?
