I want to get two lines connected to a house. One with phone and ADSL2 and another with naked ADSL or VDSL.

A Chorus technician I talked to a couple of days ago said that he has seen situations where having two ADSL connections on the same cable can have a dramatic impact on the sync rates of both lines. I've seen no mention of these problems in the forum. Can anyone confirm this?

I'm not a technician, so don't take my word as gospel...

But we've got plenty of customers who do this fine.

In theory yes, but in practice no. There will be more effect from the sum total of other DSL connections in your cable wrapper. Possibly if your are at the end of DSL range on a long lead in copper, then you may see a marginal difference there.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

A few more details in case they are relevant.

The house is ~1.1km from cabinet. Currently getting 12.5Mbps down. Not sure of the attenuation sorry.

If you run adsl + vdsl down the same 049 the vdsl has a big loss of speed

There has been a few times recently with 2 many vdsl isers close together in the cable pairs giving big reduction in speed

In theory? Yes it's possible if it's non twisted pair cable.

In the real world? Unlikely, as your DSL signal has already travelled in multi pair MPF's to get to your premises, so a 50pr cable for example serving your street will already have multiple xDSL lines in it.

I used to have a similar setup, DSL and VDSL at the same house, however they came down from the telephone pole using two different drop lines. Unsurprisingly the addition of VDSL had no impact on the DSL, got 34mbps and 16mbps respectively.

Had more issues with two wireless networks and 2.4ghz cordless phones!



Having said that, a customer of ours has two VDSL connections in one office, one is on DLM1 and the other simply will not get better than DLM2, so that translates into a difference of latency between the two.
