Have you tested with no other devices on the line (phone, fax, alarms, Sky TV box, etc)?
Do you know if you are connected to the exchange or to a cabinet?
Is the modem/router running the latest firmware?
Are you connecting your computer via ethernet or wireless?

cyril7LI'm Not Really Sure If Its A ULL Or Wholesale Connection?

Freitasm:I'm Sure We Are Connected Via Cabinet?
And Whenever I Go On The PS3 And Play A Game(COD Black Ops)For Example
Whenever People Go On The Main Computer It Lags And I Mean Alot!
I Dont Think It Has Software(No USB)
Ethernet(Wireless To 1 PC And 1 PS3)

Behodar:Im Not Sure What Those Are =|

We Contacted Then Like 6 Times Recommending Other Things Still Same Results
We Are Planning To Change To Telecom
But Telstraclear Is Like A Python
Its Gripped Us Into A 12 Month Plan
And We Want To Send It Back(The Modem) But
We Are Not Sure If We Will Be Able To Change Without Paying Those Pesky Bills For
Changing Early Within Their 12 Month Contract
We Are Moving House Tomorrow(Not Fully Just Some Stuff Loaded To The New House
The Telstraclear Team Have Made A Appointment To Put Up Our Internet
And I Think They Are Trying To Keep Us With Them
Moving On...
From Friends And Ect...
They Say Telecom Is Extremely Fast I Have Even Witnessed The Speed
Its Extremely Fast
I Could Be Waiting A Hour For Something That
Telecom Does In A Instant Of Like 20 Mins Max
Im Shocked At How Telstraclear Treats Their Customers
I Think We Should Be Able To Change Without Paying!
Not Paying OUTRAGEOUS Prices To Change From
A Bad Connection :( To A Good Connection :)
Anyway If You Want To Know Stuff Like Line Info And ULL Stuff Tell Me How To Do It
Cos Im Not Very Good With This :|

Hi, your connection speeds may well be totally different tomorrow, when you move, your house wiring may have a big impact, but without seeing your line stats you will never know.

Just log into your router, then go to ADSL status.

Hi, yes some of them, but enough to kind of establish its not a DSL issue, unless there is some issue causing packet loss.

As you can see your modem is connecting at around 7Mb/s, although your limited uplink speed (160kb/s) will mean typically you could only achieve around 5Mb/s.

Regardless all the above speeds are miles from the 0.27Mb/s you are getting, so this makes one assume that its upstream from your modem connection. This however does assume the modem is not experiencing issues that cause packet loss, but without error rates or attenuation and noise margin figures its hard to understand that.

Hi, good its much better, naturally this new houses wiring may also be limiting speeds, its possibly on DSL in NZ to get speeds as high as 17-18Mb/s, this is dependant on how far you are from the DSLAM, the street wiring conditions which is typically accepted to be good and your house wiring, which is unknown.

Once again if you post the line attenation figures some more can be understood.

Also if you put your address into the following link you can get an idea of what you could expect.
