I have been with Xnet naked dsl for around 2.5 years and my usual average Line Rate - Downstream (Kbps)=8000.

Today wifey was having trouble accessing the internet and asked me to "Sort it out!".

So I did the usual checks and noticed my Line Rate - Downstream (Kbps)=17000  , thought
thats wierd and proceeded to reboot the router.

After the router had re-synced I went through router setup to check all was well and found
my Line Rate - Downstream (Kbps) now =18000ish. (HUH!!).

I did a line speedtest.net and can confirm that my line speed has indeed doubled..!??

I sure hope this is no anomaly and definitely dont want Xnet to "Fix" the issue, I stay in
Manurewa, Sth Ak.

Anyone experienced similar?

Cheers

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?
