Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 



 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 



 

- you have reset your modem and router

 


 

- your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing

 

- you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap

 


 

- your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing

 


 

- you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

 



 

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

 



 

- Your ISP and plan

 


 

- Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL)

 


 

- Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin)

 


 

- Your general location (or street)

 


 

- If you are rural or urban

 


 

- If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin

 


 

- If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service

 


 

- If you have done an isolation test as per the link above

 



 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 



 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

 



 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

 



 

- Is your premises phone wiring impacting your broadband performance? (very technical)

 


 

- Are you receiving a substandard ULL ADSL2+ connection from your ISP?

I guess my VDSL is doubly sweet because of all the battles I had to endure with my significant other to get it installed. She takes a very "defensive" approach when it comes to all things tech and since ADSL was working well for us for quite a few years, she was really reluctant to change. This especially after she heard a few horror stories of stuffed up VDSL installs/provisioning and shoddy Chorus workmanship. But what she didn't realise was that whilst things were fine when it was just one of us (say) streaming Netflix and the other browsing stuff on the Ipad, other very basic usage situations often involved compromises. For example if she wanted to game, I pretty much would have to shut down P2P or dramatically limit speeds. Now we can pretty much do whatever we feel like at the same time and even when we have a bunch of kids in the house all wanting to do this and that (we have a lot of younger relatives), things still go very fast.

You're probably right. I would like to see Chorus offer a 30a profile, though I don't know how many people would actually be able to obtain a profile like that.

EDIT: Spelling

Our copper quality wouldnt stand a chance. So probably under 100m

I've pretty much accepted that we'll never be able to get fibre unless two people on our cross-lease of 6 properties sell up some time soon and that's unlikely. 4 of the houses here REALLY, REALLY want fibre and (I wasn't there when these things occurred - going off second hand info from my partner and the other fibre-keen households) Chorus have said that if we want fibre, the two "hold outs" will need to cooperate and allow some work to go on their properties but they, ahem, won't play nice. If we are prepared to allow certain work to go on in common areas of the cross-lease, Chorus will play along but there might be extra costs (apparently not significant but I am purely speaking from our perspective) but one of the households that is keen gets to have their own house courtesy of a parent who is one of the holdouts/objectors, so certainly won't vote in the body corporate for us. My partner is also too concerned with being neighbourly so we just aren't gonna get anywhere.

But if this is the second best, I am very happy :) Most people on planet earth will give an arm and a leg for it. VF still doesn't play too nicely with Netflix the instant I want to stream at 4300 bitrate or up but other than that, everything is perfect.
