Hi All

I recently switched from Telecom VDSL to Vodafone VDSL and was told a tech would come around and inspect my set up, he called me on the day and said he would be 30mins but he never showed up. My VDSL came online so I just let it go. Over a month later I am getting speeds of 35 ping and 25 down 9 up. I was getting better speeds and around half the ping with Telecom.

Now although I know the basics about VDSL (DLM, Profiles etc) I do not know enough to tell if my set up is optimized and if I could be getting better speeds. I'm using the Vodafone supplied HG659 which does not tell me what DLM profile I am on or my line Attenuation. I would love to know this information.

When the Telecom tech came around the first time he was gone with 20mins, he put a new plug into the wall, tested and left. Now that my new Vodafone connection has been up for over a month I would have thought that maybe my speeds would have improved a little. But I have not seen a change. Is there a chance that DLM is not working for me, or there is a issue with my wiring? Or do I need to continue to wait? I was tempted to call Vodafone and ask to reset my DLM and start from fresh.


I am a pretty keen gamer so ping is important to me and I do notice even the slightest of changes. My devices are all wired.

So, should I wait, reset DLM, or get the tech to actually come around like he was meant to (I informed Vodafone and the Tech that I had VDSL previously but they said the tech would still come around anyway).
