Your stats jumping around as much as they are is a pretty good indication of a fault too.


As painful as it might be, follow the process with the CSRs is your best bet.

Yeah in those stats the noise margin is jumping all over the place... not good... I had the same symptoms with a corroded joint at a jack point.

I called Vodafone back a little while ago and they have booked a callout for Chorus so it will be fixed.  jonb, you are right.  My line maintenance fee does cover internal wiring too so that was a nice surprise.  Thanks for your help everyone.

johnr: Do it once do it correctly with a master filter

Depending on where you are, I can install a master filter. I cover Waikato, BoP & Auckland areas.
Flick me a message or email if interested.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

And that's exactly what the problem was.  Chorus arrived this morning and sorted it out.  Good call yitz.

Not great but probably about as good as it will get where we are.

No but the line crackling got fixed.  I asked the guy from Chorus about a master filter and he didnt think it would make much difference to the speed.  Our exchange is still on adsl1 and he said there are no plans at all to upgrade it.  He said if it did, it wouldnt be that noticeable.

pure lazyness.

a splitter will always help, it may not be noticeable but at the very least it cuts out all your house wiring of being a cause of any future issues.
