Hi guys, around three months ago we were having issues with our Internet dropping out. We have a splitter on our line with a dedicated cat 6 run for the adsl. Were only 200M of copper from the roadside cabinet according to the chorus tech who came out to troubleshoot. The chorus tech said after checking our house wiring that our sync speeds should be just about maxing out. He wanted to check our modem so took me to the roadside cabinet and we plugged our modem and had the same sync rates give or take 200KB's so he plugged in one of his with the same result, He changed the port but it was the same result. So i am wondering if telecom is throttling the sync speed at the roadside cabinet bur/w in Christchurch.

Hi, I dont believe the do, however their may be no optimal or incorrect profiles applied to the two ports you have been connected to (yours and the test one the tech used). Its simply a matter of Telecom rebuilding the ports setup.

It also could be that some line condition in the areas has forced conservative profiles to be put in place.

I would ask your ISP to perform a port reset (after explaining whats happened) they may simply tell you to stuff off as your speeds are fine, or they may investigate further, pity the tech did not raise the issue.

That seems like a good ADSL connection. Your download rate is limited slightly compared to mine. I usually sit on 18Mbit/s and you won't get over that because of the noise restrictions placed on the ADSL lines by Telecom.

Your upload speed is most excellent (jealous). I usually sit on 950kbit/s.

No, the Sync rates aren't artificially constrained at the cabinets. What you get is a result of the negotiation between the DSLAM and your ADSL device. Your speed is good, but I have seen higher - sorry I can't comment on what might specifically be hurting your last few mbps - sounds like you've done the appropriate troubleshooting so far.

If you'd like, PM me your number and I'll pass to the appropriate person to have a look and see if there's anything obviously wrong. (Also, do you have interleaving on or off?)

Cheers - N

Oh, also, you mentioned that the original issue was dropouts... Were these resolved by the technician (or by random banging of things with a hammer) or do the dropouts still persist?

The older Linksys WAG units aren't the best ADSL modems around, it's probably just negotiating a slighty lower sync speed for stability.

Might explain why my router can't sync higher than 18.7mb, am only 2 doors away from the cabinet tho the original one used to be across the road

I did e-mail telecom the other day too asking bout turning interleaving off but not heard back yet
