mrgsm021: Just saw 2 Chorus techs at the my cabinet (ETM/BS), asked them about the ADSL2 upgrade, they confirmed that is what they are doing & that VDSL with also be turned on at the same time, yeeeeaaahhh! They said it may take effect in the next couple of weeks.

I am off to China for couple of weeks so hopefully when I get back it'll be on.


I am now back in NZ and guess what? Still on ADSL1, a quick check on the Telecom wholesale website on broadband availability tool, the date of upgrade to ADSL2+ on my cabinet has now been updated to scheduled May 2011? Although its only another month to wait but WTF??

Check your attenuation, if its dropped you are almost ready to go faster.

unlocker: What modem are you using? You need to tell them to check your profile but before that make sure your modem is capable of adsl2+. Your modem should sync at adsl2+ speeds if your cabinet has been upgraded.


Sorry for the late reply! Haven't had time to drop in recently.
I'm using a WAG320N so it's definitely adsl2+ capable. Also having called helpdesk they say that I am already on adsl2+ profile :(. I hope it's not my distance to my exchange.... living in Auckland CBD.
