Just noticed my connect speed on my Telecom HG630b router and trying to figure out if the speed limit is from chorus limiting the max connect rate or a limit in the modem itself 

 

 

 

 Line standard VDSL2

 

Downstream line rate (kbit/s) 99999

 

Upstream line rate (kbit/s) 48275 

 

 

 

Maybe i should try another modem?

Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 

  • you have reset your modem and router 
  • your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing - you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap 
  • your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing 
  • you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

 

  • Your ISP and plan 
  • Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL) 
  • Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin) 
  • Your general location (or street) 
  • If you are rural or urban 
  • If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin 
  • If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service 
  • If you have done an isolation test as per the link above 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

given the max is slightly over 100000Kbit\s your not missing much

 

the MAX on VDSL is either 100/50Mbps or 70/30Mbps depending on the line card you are connected to consider yourself lucky if that is your connected speed

 

btw you will probably only ever see 93Mbps over it via Ethernet anyways as it only has fast Ethernet ports not gigabit Ethernet ports (unless they have an uprated version of it now)

So what your saying is that it is probably the physical limit or the 17a line card that chorus has installed in the cabinet and they are not planning on upgrading 30a or 35b line cards any time soon?

Your line stats show that you are getting very close to the maximum possible for VDSL2 technology (100/50), so I'm not sure what limitation you are referring to?

 

Your VDSL connection is likely one of the best in the country (average speeds are probably below half of what you are getting).

 

The only way to get more speed from your router to the internet is to get Fibre (if that is available in your area).

What Speed Limit?

 

What speeds are you actually getting (Do a speedtest over Ethernet)?

 

If you are getting those speeds, they are awesome. I'd expect you to get much slower than that (more like 70/30 max).

ll try a modem / router with gigabit Ethernet. It is a marked improvement from the 70/12 i was getting earlier this year, I am guessing that chorus did a change in band plan but are sticking to the 17a profile and not changing to the 30a profile

yes

 

 

 

i dont believed there is intention on upgrading to any further revisions of VDSL due to chorus focusing on fibre

doubt you will ever see 30a, as i understand it it wont actually fit 8b lines. If im not mistaken, some of the linecards arent compatible of 30a at all too.

 

 

 

with 998 there are two different max DSLAM speeds, the exact changes are as followed:

 

ikanos linecards are limited to 70000/30000 a step up from 70000/10360 on 997.

Broadcom linecards are limited to 100016/51200 a step up from 71680/10360 on 997.

 

 

 

getting a sync of 99999 is strange, but pure chance. You may find another modem will sync slightly differently.

 

 

 

Upstream is one of the closer to maximum lines i have seen.

 

 

 

raw downstream throughput, that seems a little low.

The hg630b is limited to 10/100 ethernet, that might be a reason.
