About two weeks ago the roadside cabinet for my home was upgraded to support ADSL2+ [1]. I've checked and my connection rate is unchanged from the 7616 Kbps max of ADSL, and it's still in G.DMT mode. I am curious about what usually happens next.

* Does Chorus upgrade connections automatically ? If so, how long has that taken for others ?
* Do all the cabinets in an area get done, then there is further work and an announcement ? eg [2].  The exchange still needs doing on Telecom Wholesale's map
* Is there some sort of letter/email saying 'surprise, your internets are faster if you go reboot your modem'

Thanks for any info.


[1] Using http://www.chorus.co.nz/cabinetupdate. I am almost certain that TC will be using Telecom Wholesale for my connection, since suburban Rangiora (N. Canterbury) seems like an unlikely place to do anything else.

[2] http://www.chorus.co.nz/n1357.html - btw they say that only 100 cabinets are left out of 3600 total

What plan are you on and what sort of modem do you have?

The main work may be complete and they are still in a process of migrating individual lines/services.

If you have an older modem it may not support ADSL2+.

Turns out the service was migrated to ADSL2+ today, so patience was the key. Getting 16739/1171 Kbps on the line rate now.

I guess its also possible you are on an older Telstra Adsl plan? On your bill are you on a Call Local/NZ/World

or Just homeline with PDQ?
