bbman:I suggest you sign up get the Thompson modem and get a line check or even ask for your line to be put on another PORT and see if that helps.
From my experience the internal wiring is often the prob,


Thanks bbman but I don't think my 3.2Mbps download limit is external to the exchange.

Before the Thomsom modem I was interested in why I could never see the theoretical ~4.5Mbps download with a 160kbps upload referred to by Cyril7 even though my line speed is 7.6Mbps. According to the isposure comparisons no other Telecom Go customer gets more than 3.2Mbps download from Miramar either regardless of time of day. The good thing is that rarely does the speed drop below that unlike some of the other plans isposure compares against.

So has that exchange been updated with the adsl 2 capability already?? If so you may be able to get your profile changed @ xtra to support that especially since you are so close to the exchange.

I've tried the Thomson modem, it achieves a download sync rate of 11.3Mbps compared to the D-Link 7.6Mbps but the throughput goes down. I can swap between the 2 modems and the slower one is always faster, on the Telecom speedtest the D-link is consistently over 1Mbps faster than the Thomson. Broadband help accept that there doesn't seem any logic to this but wouldn't escalate because the throughput was still "average".

Any ideas?
