Hi ChorusVan.

I see you were able to provide an upgrade description for an RbI cabinet in another thread. 

Any chance you can give me a breakdown of the CYD/G cabinet upgrade. I believe its due for an upgrade by August.

Just keen to find out more, Is there fiber to the cabinet @ present, 
Do they plan to replace the cabinet.
What capacity would the upgrade provide.

Thanks

Jeremy

Put your address into http://chorus.co.nz/maps. Will generally say RBI Broadband > 1 Mbps or RBI Broadband > 5 Mbps. Yes, All RBI cabinets are new & fibre fed.

Thanks agian.

It just says greater than 1mbps by august . which terrifies me as I get that faster than that currently.
I do however sync to the conklin @ 7.4 mbps so I hope I can still obtain that full line speed.
Do the RBI cabinets provide adsl2 or only adsl1

Thanks 

Jeremy

RBI cabinets are identical to the other 3900 odd cabinets already deployed - they're ADSL2+ and VDSL2 capable.

So vdsl is avalible within 900m of cabinet then ?.
That is great news as we have another property within that range.

Thanks Sbiddle

The copper run does not always run direct to the cabinet / exchange so it could be longer than 900m

Thanks John, 

its about 600m in a straight line to the cabinet from the other location. If my brother that lives at the site gets a dramatically better connection.  I will look to install a vdsl2 - ubiquity wireless point to point solution.

Cheers

Jeremy

I have a related question. I am looking at an address in a rural township. A new fibre fed cabinet has just gone in directly opposite from the property concerned. But this address and even addresses on the same side of the road as the cabinet are all listed on the Chorus site simply as >1Mb/s.

Looking at the relevant Chorus spreadsheet it indicates 'N' in the column relating to 'Cabinetisation of lines'. What exactly does this mean?

Just read in another thread on here

Quote from Chorus Van
"Most of the RBI cabinets we are installing are fibre-fed and contain an ISAM (hosting ADSL2+ / VDSL2 line cards). It is helpful to remember that under RBI Chorus has committed to deliver >5Mbit/sec to certain users off these cabinets and >1Mb/s for users further out."

Would that mean there is a chance VDSL2 would not be provided ?.

After conducting some L.O.S surveys this afternoon. I am confident I can tap vdsl2 from a pump shed (has power & line connection point 50m away) I would then use a remote solar repeater with ubiquiti nanobridges to feed 30+mbs to our rural business via a 3km route.

So I guess back to my original question for Chorusvan about the intended install for this location.
As once I can confirm vdsl2 will be available I can begin building the p2p bridge.

Thanks again for all who have taken time to reply. Still hoping for a reply from Chorus.

Cheers

Jeremy

To be honest if you've got 900m of line to the cabinet it's hardly worth getting VDSL - if you do make sure you get a master filter installed - but the sync speed would be pretty low.

Rural users need to remember that electric fences are a key cause of many issues at present. VDSL2 is very dependant on having a good MPF between the cabinet and the premises, with interference causing significantly more impact to VDSL2 which is either 8Mhz or 17Mhz compared to ADSL2+ which is only 2.2MHz and ADSL which is only 1.1Mhz.

@Michael

only 530m from the cabinet with 10db on adsl1 currently for the demarc that I would take a line from. Thats 10db with no master splitter on unkown wiring circa 1980's. the vdsl calc with standard copper thats 53mb

@sbiddle

thankfully we are fruitgrowers with very little farming nearby . In 15 years of rural internet I have been fortunate not to have had electric fence issues. which are prevalent in rural NZ.

Cheers

A quick jpg of my options including the ubiquiti solution. I have two paths one is 5ghz and line of sight. 2nd will be 900mhz if possible through tops of shelterbelts.

There is no mention of the specific bands within 900mhz.

Is this getting uncomfortably close to the cellular bands ?.

Found Operating frequency: 902-928MHz mentioned not sure if Nz specific
In conjuction with http://www.gowifi.co.nz/support/support.html

5ghz looks like the go though, as the review on 900mhz with multiple trees is poor
