I work at the ISP (I set the ISP end up as well) and yes I have asked Chorus to set it to 17a profile but they won't do it (yet) for various reasons.

Lodge a ticket with Chorus Faults (via Gateway) and ask for DLM to be put on the line for evaluation.
All going well, and If you're lines as good as your modems reporting, it should flick over to 17a.

Make sure you don't reset your modem during the eval period (7-10 days) - as it may give the impression the lines unstable.

I'm following up on this thread as I've got an all in one aDSL model/router/switch/wifi unit that I'm looking to replace. I've already unloaded the Wifi AP role and will unload the switching this afternoon. What I think I would require is a ZyXEL P-870M, however, I'm not sure this is compatible with NZ VDSL?

I currently have two port forwards, HTTPS and PlayStation RemotePlay) and DHCP services provided by the existing unit. The ZyXEL supports NAT, which I'm assuming including port forwarding?
