Thanks, but you'll have to translate "upstream bin allocation" into plain English for me. smile



upload speed looks lower than it potentially could be.


I'd put this down to possibly any bad internal wiring or the modem chipset simply not being the best.



Assuming everything was perfect (wiring, modem chipset), what upload speed do you think might be attainable? Are we talking a slight increase in upstream speed, or significant? I'm just wondering if it's worth wasting more time/money on trying to improve the situation?

Without doing too much math (drayteks bitloading is hard to count) i'd be looking at about 3-4mbit.




Assuming there isn't a genuine reason, such as a bridge tap.

Conor nz:


Hi Team - Long time lurker, first time poster.

Just moved into a house I bought in Geraldine - very close to the centre of town, so only a few hundred metres from the exchange, but my VDSL connection has some sub-par line attenuation (36dB up/41dB Down) and I'm only getting 13mbit down/ 3.6mbit up line speed

House is 1950's and has one of the old style drop lines that feeds into the roof. VDSL was installed a couple years ago - well before I moved in - and I believe the cable they ran down into a dedicated jack is Cat5e. I took the face plate off all the other phone jacks in the house and clipped the line so the VDSL is the only thing using any jack point in the house. Any tips?



Just an update. Turns out some mice had gone to town on my splitter and severed one of the lines coming in. New splitter installed and went from 41dB downstream attenuation to 15dB. 10mbit before to 46.3mbit downstream rate after, and from 4mbit to 12.6mbit upstream. Pretty happy.
