This is mine...

And here is proof TNZ employee's don’t get preferential treatment ;)

1st test, router has not been rebooted in 40 days...



2nd test after router reboot



Using IE8 on Win XP SP3


                  | Connection Speed | Line Attenuation | Noise Margin
Downstream |           8157 kbps | 40 db                | 14 db
Upstream     |           850 kbps   | 10.5 db             | 11 db

Guess the high Line Attenuation 40 db isnt helping?

[Updated] - Location is central Auckland, K'rd

Its not so much whereabouts in chch, its a case of him living outside a cabinet/exchange :), with those rates and attenuation, he has to be within ~100m of his cabinet.. Perfect candidate for vdsl2+

Hi Joker!

I can  confirm Garvani's suspicions Smile I'm about 50 metres from the local cabinet, and in Hamilton.

the other thing was is ping of 108ms to auck (fr chch) and 180ms to LA too slow? will making interleaving OFF give dramatic improvement? will i notice faster response when i click on links etc?

Geez DjShadow, you could reach out the window and touch your cabinet!

I know your closeby in Nawton, which cabinet are you connected to? Can you post your modem stats? Maybe variances in the lines to and from the cabinet is the cause for the drop in connection speed, even though youre closer to a cabinet than I am. Interesting!

Woo, another Snap Customer! Except Rain tends to make my connection prettttty bad, so at the moment I am using a Ancient Modem the size of a small server, from about 1999 (It's my Rain Modem for times when Water get's in the line) - I am also 50m away from the Cabnet.

Telecom Explorer connection:
- Located in Fendalton, Christchurch
- Thompson Wireless Router
- Two phone socket's in house, with 4 month old filters (one sky tv)
- Tested via Wireless connection to Laptop

Bandwidth (Up/Down) [kbps/kbps]: 945 / 12.066
Output Power (Up/Down) [dBm]: 12,0 / 19,5
Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]: 8,0 / 18,0
SN Margin (Up/Down) [dB]: 14,5 / 12,5

Speedtest.net results:

ST
ST 2
ST 3
ST 4

When we moved to Telecom we were averaging around 10 megabits down, 600k up on speedtest.net and other local speedtests, about a month later this dropped to between 2 and 4 megabits and has stayed like this since. Still better speed and service than Xnet.

Hey guys,


I have yet to switch to Big Time, but after receiving a letter today about the cancellation of Go Large, I'll no doubt be switching soon (and upgrading my router to one that's ADSL2+ compatible).


I have a couple of questions:
-How do you find out your distance from the local cabinet?
-How do you find out your maximum attainable speed?


I remember the Telecom engineers working on underground lines just at the top of my street (about 20m from my house), can I assume this is the location of the cabinet?


I currently use a Billion 7100S router, but I'm wanting to upgrade. Any suggestions for what make/model I should get, or stay away from?




Appreciate any response,

Hi Bryce,

if you have a look at www.telecom.co.nz/adsltwoplus, it will tell you if they are upgrading your cabinet

I use the 2wire gateway which comes with the business broadband plans and other than being a pain to setup the wireless it seems very stable
