Chorus spent about 6 hours here today trying to find and fix the problem which seems to be a damaged underground cable that had some water ingress

Stats are looking a little better :D

  Bearers generic info                           DS             US
    Payload rate [Kbps]:                       66678        10351
    Attenuation [dB]:                            1.7             4.9
    Margins [dB]:                                 12.7           31.3
    Output power [dBm]:                     10.6           -5.2

    Number of bearers:                           1
    Bearer 0                                         DS             US
      INP [DMT symbols]:                      0.00           0.00
      Delay [ms]:                                  0.00           0.00
      Depth []:                                        1             0.00

Currently a few errors on the line but i think what was from when they were reconnecting everything/fiddling in the cabinet nothing at all for the last 15 minutes.

Previously attenuation was 6.3 down and 10.6 up when i was on 17a and 62mbps

That's looking good. No need to worry about a small (and consistent) number of errors. My line is rock solid at 70 Mbps with about 3 errors per minute - no DLM changes in about 9 months.

May not be permanent as coming back from getting dinner there is a temp cable running from the cabinet to the junction box outside my house. which im guessing is carrying the signals at the moment. + my brother-in-law over the road (fed from the same junction box/cable) doesnt have phone service still.

ild say you will likely go back to the loop around that you had before.. not a direct one like the temporary line you currently have :c

Going off all the work/issues that i had with my line recently should i be asking telecom to have my line reset? so it will start the 10 day training period again?

or just wait and see what happens?

G'day Everyone

Last Tuesday I switched from ADSL2+ with Flip to VDSL with Slingshot. ADSL speeds were around 13mbps and unfortunately the switch to VDSL appears to have made no difference to my d/load speeds. Getting about 12-14mbps down, of course upload is vastly better coming in at about 7.5mbps. Checked my VDSL modem stats and it's showing attenuation of 15dB. Being within the first 10 days of connection to VDSL I'm obviously still going through DLM but I'm guessing that I'm not really going to see any vast improvements in download speeds? Speedguide.net suggests that with 15dB attenuation I should get 34mbps down. Is that likely or would I be better off just going back to ADSL?

12-14 Mbps does sound too low for 15 db attenuation, but we'll need more info to tell what (if anything) is wrong. Your modem should report error counts somewhere - that would help. You are still in the training period so it could well get faster as DLM tries different profiles.

You've got much the same download and much better upload on VDSL. Even if nothing changes I can't see how you'd be better off on ADSL.

When you had the VDSL installed did Chorus install a master splitter and a new Cat5 cable to a dedicated VDSL jack? 15mb down and 7.5mb up seem like odd numbers to me, if you were getting poor speeds due to distance your upload would likely be a lot lower.
