Do vodafone use the same equipment as Telecom? I have adsl2+ with Telecom but according to the red zone checker I am outside of the zone. Although all the area has been upgraded to adsl2+ a few months back.

If you are in the Red zone you can be connected to a Voda LLU connection, ie you will be connected to a Vodafone owned and operated DSLAM at your local exchange but using copper to your place owned by Telecom. Vodafones DSLAMs are all ADSL2+ capable.

If you are outside the RED zone Vodafone will sell you a connection using a Telecom equipment, ie Telecom wholesale their gear to Voda who retail it to you. Pretty much all main exchanges are now ADSL2+ capable, put your address into the following link to see if Telecom have ADSL2+ DSLAMs in your location.

If the link tells you you are connected via a cabinet and the date indicates that its in service then you are best to not go for a LLU connection but a telecom wholesale connection.


Edit, just re read you post, you are already on ADSL2+ but outside the Red zone so alls good, no

So as I said if you are on a cabinet (yes/no) then you are best staying with that connection as LLU connections from Voda DSLAMs are compromised if they are looped through the cabinet.

What are you connection stats, Attenuation, Sync speed etc.

So all's answered, you are on ADSL2+ via a cabinet and outside the Voda Red network, therefore your options are simply as you have. Looking at your stats I can't but help think that you should be able to achieve slightly better speeds, purhaps there are line stubs in your house wiring (only fixed with central filter) that need sorting.

I Reset the router before posting those up. So you'd get a good idea of the bare line. Using DMT tools I get a line speed of around 15000kbps
